blogging personality

Fr. Jim at Dappled Things has continued blogging about the personality results. So far with talking to people I know, I seem to be most compatible with are extroverted versions of my personality or ENTJ. I wonder if it’s a balance thing?

my personality

After reading Fr. Jim’s entry about his Myers-Briggs test results, I figure I would post mine as well.
Your personality type is INTJ.
Introverted (I) 82% Extraverted (E) 18%
Intuitive (N) 82% Sensing (S) 18%
Thinking (T) 75% Feeling (F) 25%
Judging (J) 68% Perceiving (P) 32%
(from kisa.ca)
Alright- what does that mean? Typelogic has an in-depth look at what you can assume about me.

back to ‘normal’

Well, I got the site back up; however, the same problems on my end remain. I’m going to ask the MT people if they have any ideas. If they don’t, I’m going to suffer through it while looking for something better out there that my system will operate correctly.
Update: Alright, actually, it’s slightly worse. Before, it would just kick back an error when posting a new entry. Now, it rebuilds another entry and changes the category. Not only that but it sometimes changes entries on other weblogs I run from this server. Not good stuff. I e-mailed some people seeing if they had any ideas on how I could fix it.

two months old but funny

China Paper Bites on Onion Gag (Wired.com)
First off, yes this is late. Very late. This happened in early June- but this is the first time I ran across it and I thought most of y’all might like the little laugh that it would give you. We all know and love The Onion for it’s news-parodies. One Bejing newspaper didn’t understand the concept of a parody.
The newspaper published a story that was based on The Onion’s story of Congress threatening to leave if a new Capitol isn’t built. The parody was designed to mock new great American institutions: baseball and Congress but the 1.25 million readers of the Beijing Evening News are waiting to see if Congress will in fact leave D.C. for a community more willing to support them.
What’s next? Will they reprint the story about how Former President Carter is going to be tried for peace crimes? Only time will tell…

what’s sensitive?

“Some guys might not agree with this, but the most sensitive milimeter of tissue on the body is in your eye” — Professor Oler, Psychobiology, Trinity College in Hartford, CT (as recored on Trinity’s Daily Jolt)

random status info

So far, this website has hosted two polls. The first was “Graduate Programs”, a poll asking what you think I should do in the years following graduation. It has been by far the most interesting poll ever taken in the quest to tell me what to do. The other poll is the “Meeting Places” poll. As of today it no longer exists. I’m throwing it out. I’m throwing it out and writing a poll that makes sense. You cannot poll the audience without asking questions that people want to answer. I consider that top priority and I will go door to door if I have to, but I’m going to convince Americans to answer the poll, and I’m going to get the answers.

Well, times like this are when I am glad I don’t use Xanga. Xanga, the host of virtually all the weblogs I read, went off the deep end. Maybe something to do with the Microsoft worm that’s been in the news lately? Just a random Denial of Service attack? Who knows. In either case, just forewarning for anyone else who wants to let me know the links don’t work.
My system is still a little buggy. After I return to Austin (and get my cable internet hooked up and all of that jazz), I’m going to backup the database and do a fresh install. The site might be down a short while or at least things like the Comment feature and the Notification feature will be offline. I’ll let you know more when the time comes.
