Partner In Crime

What mortal sin did you commit to end up working in IT?
I probably wronged someone in a previous life.

What was your very first job?
Paperboy for the Toronto Star.

What is your super power?
That has to be shape-shifting (I can generally adapt to situations)

What new skill or hobby did you pick up during the pandemic lockdown?
Didn’t really slow down, so had no time to pickup anything new 🙁

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A spy.

How long would you survive during a zombie apocalypse.
Probably a long time; I am pretty good at “camping” 🙂

If you could have dinner with anyone, anywhere who and where would it be?
That’s actually two questions, but we’ll overlook that 🙂 I would want to have dinner with my younger self so I could impart the knowledge and wisdom I have currently.

What is the thing you’re most afraid for people to know about you?
That I don’t know everything

Is a hotdog a sandwich?
Yes

Why do you get out of bed in the morning?
Because my wife will make the bed with me in it, otherwise.

Would you rather fight 1 horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses?
I don’t multi-task very well, so I definitely wouldn’t be able effectively fight 100 creatures at once, so it would have to be the horse-sized duck.

What would you rather be doing right now?
Clapping bitches in “Call of Duty”

What’s your favourite part of working in IT?
The variety of tasks and problems I have each day.

What is the most interesting IT problem you’ve worked on?
I haven’t really worked on anything super-interesting myself, but the most interesting IT problem I have ever heard about is the case of the 500-mile e-mail (Google it; it’s a fascinating read)

What do you like the most about working with Tenacious?
It’s definitely not the commute 🙂 It’s a boring answer, but probably the people.
