It's all about me.
Well, this blog is, anyway. And in this context, "me" refers to one Mike Frazer -- resident of Planet Earth, husband, father of one (for now), friend of some, acquaintance of many, stranger to most.
If you are here, there's a good chance you are familiar with my old site, InvertedMind.com. I ran that site since 2000, creating hundreds of posts and tens of viewers. InvertedMind became, to some extent, my alter-ego. It got to the point where I was referring to myself in the third person. I'm not sure why. Really, I'm not.
But it became too much to maintain. Over the course of 10 years I went from running the site on my own server, using my own, custom blogging application (before it was even called a blog) to using a publicly available blog backend, simply because it became too much to maintain a job, a family and a fully custom Web site. My ability to post eroded slower only than my desire to do so.
So, it was with great sadness I closed the book on 10 years of my life. But when I closed it, the desire was not to stop blogging, but to start with a clean slate. I wanted something that reflected who I am today, not who I was when I was still a full-time college student. I wanted something to go along with my new marriage. I wanted something where, when the archives are viewed, the readers knows who I am now.
I am a devout Christian.
I am a devoted husband and father.
I am a rabid Steelers fan.
I haven't voluntarily missed a NASCAR [Insert Name Here] Cup Series race in more than 20 years -- and have never failed to root for any Earnhardt in the field.
I am a Senior Software Development Engineer. That translates to "me makey computer worky."
I am a lot of things, but one item not among them is a quitter. So...I'm back!
