7 Things About Me 2

Meme time again. Dave tagged me. And I need to blog more often… this ended up being a couple of weeks later than intended. So here we go!

4 Rules:

  1. Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
  2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

7 Things:

  1. I have two pet sharks – a silver shark and a rainbow shark. They live in two freshwater tropical aquariums along with angel fish, tiger barbs, neon tetras, bleeding-heart tetras, upside-down catfish, bristle-nose catfish, black-line flying-foxes, algae eaters, apple snails, black ghost knife-fish, a skunk loach, and a plecostomus.
  2. I’m acrophobic. This isn’t vertigo or not liking heights. This is full-blown irrational extreme fear. Panic attacks, complete disorientation, uncontrollable shaking, visual and auditory hallucinations, physically ill, vomiting, and losing consciousness. Getting up to the 3rd step of a step ladder is a huge accomplishment for me.
  3. I’m co-founder of the Dunedin Makerspace, which was established in late 2010. We do both hardware and software, and I organise the software-related talks for every second Thursday night. My current project there on Saturday afternoons is building a 3D printer.
  4. My online nickname, Unfocused, has no deep meaning. Some people read too much into it, but “Unfocused” was just a synonym for “Blur”, a nickname I originally gained offline. When I was around 9 years old, my classmates thought it would be funny to mispronounce Blair as Blur. It stuck.
  5. I am the southern-most Mozillian (AFAIK). I live in Dunedin, which is 45° 52′ 0″ S.
  6. I can’t drive. I never learned to drive a car. It’s not that I’ve never had the chance – I just don’t want to learn to drive.
  7. I hate timezones. Seriously. They suck.
