Hello there! My name is Jordan Earls, and this is my website. I program, mess with electronics, play video games, use Linux, and of course make websites. Last time I checked, I'm 21 years old. Sadly, I don't like beer much, Jack and Coke is nice though.
I'm currently employed at PreEmptive Solutions. I work on their Dotfuscator team as a Junior Software Engineer. Because of this, I'm now located in Cleveland, Ohio. I really enjoy my job so far. IL in the morning is just so refreshing lol
Sometimes, I also draw. I suck at it, so don't expect much more than scribbles and stick figures. Oh, and I love good music. Good being defined as Skrillex, Placebo, Brand New, A Day To Remember, Green Day, Fall Out Boy(where the name of this blog came from!), Armor For Sleep, and many many others. Check out my "Morning Commute" playlist on spotify for more; I won't waste space on this page detailing them all.
I also have some fun outside(gasp!) playing basketball(btw, I suck), fishing, swimming, and hanging out with friends around bonfires.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words, and I'm not going to type 1000 words here:
That's me, Haley, and Taya. Taya is technically just Haley's daughter, but she might as well be mine too(I'm her "Joo-Joo"). I'm
practically engaged married to Haley. She's the one who drags me away from the computer at 4am when I "just have to get this one thing to work". She also has enough knowledge about Linux now to start virtualbox so she can have flash-player and play farmville. (I don't make it easy either, I use Fluxbox as my window manager). And my computer skills have even rubbed off on Taya a bit. One of the few clear words she could say before she was 2 was "CD".
About This Site
Well, I just couldn't resist telling people how this site was made. Anyway, this site is truly one of a kind.
I created this site using C# in ASP.Net running on Mono served by Apache. I did not use WebForms, nor did I use ASP.Net MVC. I used my own custom view engine, EView and I used my (poorly named) web/routing framework EFramework.
You can find more details about how it really works by reading this blog post.
