Most of my co-workers have posted the results of their personality test on the outside of their cubes. So, being a team-player, I took the test too (results below). After reading much of the content describing the ENTP personality type, I have to say that I do not greatly disagree with my identification as an ENTP. Most of the items apply to me and often pinpoint my daily approach.
Your personality type is ENTP.

I recently finished an article that introduced "Nordic", a SQL Server implementation of an object/relational database design in The Architecture Journal written by Paul Nielsen. I have only begun to review the implementation schema and Paul's Nordic presentation. Although his approach is exciting, I have some important questions, concerns, etc. while I attempt to apply what I've learned.
I recently discussed the need to effectively authenticate an application's execution context with several members of the development community, including the Open Web Application Security Project and AZGroups.com. Here are some important points to consider when securing your application's execution context (i.e. verifying that your application is executing from trusted installation sites):*The following points are made from the perspective of a .NET implementation, so please modify them as necessary for other languages, including any examples or references in your comments.
*A simple example for an ASP.NET application would be to have the application log itself on start-up (an application signature like a GUID, IP, domain name, etc.) and monitor the log.
I think it's funny that Microsoft is preparing to sell Anti-Virus software. The idea of a company protecting their own software with a separate software product? I mean, who better to write such software, right? What a business concept; sell people software that works, but needs a separate product to work securely!
Blah, blah, blah... that's what I feel like.
I've discussed surrogate keys with peers for years now and I am happy to have a single, thorough resource that investigates the various methods of surrogate primary key generation.
Here I am at 11 PM trying to finish my reading and a case study paper for my 2 classes. Gotta have my paper done by Wednesday and I have to familiarize myself with the Western International University "style guidelines" (a modified APA format). I knew it would be challenging, but didn't expect grueling.
The Starlight Community Theater's production of the Music Man premiered with 3 performances this last weekend from Thursday through Saturday. The play is going very well, despite 2 major interruptions/distractions. On Friday night, I was leading the quartet in a song (I play Jacey the high tenor) across the stage for a Lida Rose reprise when the fire alarms in the high school went off. I would like to thank our stage crew for experimenting with the fog machine for the next scene for the 1st time during that quiet interlude! What did I do mid-stage when the alarm went off? Considered walking everyone off and then decided that the show would go on (at least until we slowly sauntered off singing, seeing the scene through to the bitter end). Both the audience and the cast members had to exit the building, so the quartet decided to entertain the audience until we were allowed back in. On Saturday night, the air conditioning went out in the building a couple of times, requiring maintenance. They were able to fix it, but our audience suffered the heat to enjoy our performance. FYI: Anyone in the Phoenix North Valley of Arizona can look forward to ProMusica auditions over the next few weekends, so sign-up!
Tomorrow I start Organizational Behavior and Theory and on Thursdays I will be taking Cultural Diversity. I'm excited about the management class and am attempting to keep positive about the cultural class... sounds dry, but that will depend on the instructor and my perspective.
