My name is Ben, and my love for the TV show Ben10 is totally coincidental. I swear! Actually I'm from Germany so English is not my first language. I hope you can forgive me if my grammar is not 100%, though I always try my very best to keep all my posts in a somewhat readable state.
I'm a rather quiet person that defeats problems by patience and persistence. I CAN get very emotional but when that happens, its bound to be over in a minute. Just old habits braking through. Since I found and accepted my inner child, I was reborn as a new character.
I finished school quite a while ago and am working fulltime for a company that sells uninterruptible power supply units (up to 3000kVA) into the whole world.
No, I'm not a VIP in there. I don't even have a desk job but belong to the foot soldiers who grind away their souls in the production halls.
No complaining here, I'm nonetheless getting good salary and even my job can be fun and challenging at times.
When not grinding, I like to solve problems of everyday computerlife by the use of the Microsoft .Net-Framework. In that regard I like to keep things simple and just create small, simple tools for one specific job, for example automatic renaming of all mp3-files of the current directory based on their ID3-tag, Windows-Explorer integrated file cheksum comparison or stuff like that. That way you can keep finishing your projects even when low on spare time and its very rewarding to having these gadgets help you around.
Aside of that I also like to play World of tanks. I love tanks. Even more so when they stand burning in front of me!
What else do I like? Glitch Hop, Dubstep and - Yes, Metal.
My favourite Artists are as follows in no particular order:
Skrillex, Alexander Vinter, "TheFatRat", Disturbed, Subway to Sally and last but not least: Knorkator (Warning: Explicit german lyrics )
My smaller side also likes to watch tv. I love series like Ben10 oder older stuff like Digimon, Dragonball or Hotaru no haka(Grave of the fireflies). Very good title, although the story of this movie is more suited for the grownups.
So my main reason for joining is propably the same as with everyone else. Find like minded people to be able to talk about all and sundry and especially about things you could never talk about with people you know in person.
Ever thought about asking your uncle what his favorite diapers are or if he uses mattress covers? I'm shivering just thinking about that.
Giving and recieving tips, sharing experiences, getting the confirmation that I am not crazy. That there are more people out there that think and feel alike. Having a herd, a community. Isn't that something we all strive for?
And with these words I conclude my introduction for today.
Boy that took a while.
Thanks for reading
