The initial flames were about 3 feet high, and went through the seat and burned passengers in the seat in front of where the fire was.

Oh Myer's Briggs...

Someone recently asked me what I was on the Myer's Briggs test. It had been a while since I had taken the test, and ten years ago, I was an ENTP.

Tonight, I took the test again, and found that I was an ENTJ this time.

But only barely. I am almost perfectly on the border for E and T (1% preference), and only have a slight preference for the J as well (22%). For the N portion, I have a distinctively expressed (75%) preference for N.

I think the description for the ENTJ is pretty accurate.

So the types I am now closest to (besides ENTJ) are:

ENFJ Teacher
INTJ Mastermind
ENTP Inventor (where I came from ten years ago)

I added high score to the exercise motivator

I added a high score to the exercise motivator. So now you can try to compete against yourself as well as other people.

So now there are multiple ways to motivate yourself:

  1. Public humiliation
  2. Competition with others
  3. Competition with yourself

Lots of ways to keep you motivated to exercise this holiday season!

Our new child, Delilah?

For some time now, our answering machine has had a message, saying that "you've reached the home of Jade, Kate, and Delilah." Recently, this message has taken an added significance for some people. My wife is expecting a baby any day now, and we've now received two messages congratulating us on our baby girl, Delilah.

Delilah is actually our cat! The baby hasn't been born yet.

Rubick.com is now back up

Sorry for the hiatus. Rubick.com is now back up and running, upgraded and on a new server, and at a new hosting facility instead of in my basement.

I'm hoping this will ensure that it will be more reliable in the future.

Very useful dictionary site for Japanese to English, English to Japanese, and a Japanese-Japanese dictionary as well.

Useful for copy and pasting when I'm reading Japanese websites.
