Now that my web design is (mostly) out of the way, I can properly introduce myself!
Hello, my name is Rob. My home page says a lot about me, but I'll go into more detail here.

Professional & Hobbies

I've been programming for 13 years and do it not only as a hobby but also a profession. My skills include, but are not limited to: PHP, NodeJS, Perl, C#, and some C++. I mostly program web stuff however.

In 2011-2013 I did some office work. About a year was spent in telemarketing, but I got out of that to work in IT.
In 2014 I worked for a nuclear power plant, though I can't say any specifics regarding my time there, that was a very interesting experience.

Since late 2015 I've been, among other things, programming and helping design & maintain infrastructure for which is owned by TheEpTic (you should follow him :P).
If you don't know what is, go check it out! It's a web based game where you play as a "cell" that eats other players which are also other cells.
I can't begin to describe how amazing the journey has been with Gota, and I can't wait to see where the future takes it.

Personal life

I don't really get out and do as much as I used to as far as socializing. But I do enjoy the company of my friends.
Much of my time socializing is spent rambling at kids online how storing a 100MB file used to be a trivial decision, or how downloading that would take ages on my dial-up at their age.

My music tastes are rather mixed. I like a lot of different music, even rap, though I dislike most rap music.
My favorite band is The Beatles, I haven't heard a song by them that I've really disliked, though I could say the same about Sublime :).

My previous next door neighbor was Rob from Pistol Day Parade. His band would practice whenever, but not a single noise complaint here.
Their song, Rock Star's Girlfriend, was all over the radio back then. If you haven't already, you should check them out. Here's one of their songs I could find on soundcloud:

I hope that you guys enjoy our little adventure here, see you next time!
