I posted my disclaimer and this is the corollary of sorts: the "about me" page. Who cares? Most likely nobody but me (and a few people wasting time at work). On the off-chance that you need a small piece of useless trivia about me, well, perhaps this will help.
Name: Erik J. Barzeski1
AIM: Figure it out given the immediate above
Location: Erie, PA
Originally: Near Erie, PA (small town called "North East")
Born: March 23, 1978. That makes me an Aries, for whatever that's worth.
Numbers: 5'10", 185, and 42. I'll let you figure out the last one.
Marital Status: Married (since May 27, 2005) to the nickname's namesake.
Occupation: Web and software consultant
Favorite Meal at Outback: Melbourne, rare; baked potato with a lot of butter and bacon bits - no sour cream; cinnamon apples instead of the salad. I've never ordered anything else there. (Except one time with Kati when they - I kid you not - ran out of steak.)
Favorite Drink: Coke, though I've kicked the habit.
Personality Type: ISTP3
Personal Goals: Yep, I have 'em4
Skills: Golf, programming, procrastinating, etc.
- I like the "J" for some reason. It's in my physical signature, too.↩
- This stands for "I Adore Carey Adina Smith." I chose it when I first got online in 1986. The guy whose modem I was dialing into (essentially) asked "what username do you want?" I chose "erik" but was then told "that's not cool to pick your own name." I picked "iacas" because it looked nifty, meant something, and could be pronounced if need be. It's been my "online alter ego" ever since. The Carey story is strengthened by my three-year high school crush on her. Calling it a "crush" may be unfair to myself, Carey, or both of us. It's too far in the past to remember exactly what it was, but crushes typically don't last a decade. Oh, and Carey and I are married now. To each other, as it turns out.↩
