Who are you?
My name is Mike Moore. I’m basically a computer geek. I got involved in computer in college where I took some computer programming courses. I just naturally gravitated towards computers. On the first real job that I had, I was naturally curious and I started doing computer support, even though it wasn’t technically my job. I’ve been providing computer support in some form since 1984… over 26 years! I currently work intermittently as a contract developer. I also provide computer/technology support to individuals, organizations and small businesses on an as-needed basis.
Why do you call thblog “The Atomic Dwarf Chronicles”? Who is this Atomic Dwarf anyway?
I’ve always been interested in science fiction and fantasy.
When I was in high school, I played a lot of fantasy and science fiction role-playing games, including Dungeons and Dragons, Gamma World and Villains and Vigilantes. In one of the D&D campaigns in which I played, I had a character who was a dwarven fighter. His name was Monad. As did many gamers, I found out, the best characters to play are extensions of your own personality. Like me, Monad was interested in science and science fiction. Even though he was a medeival fantasy character, I often imagined him in science fiction settings.
At some time or another, while imagining him as such, the name Atomic Dwarf came to my mind. I thought that if I ever was able write stories or a comic book about him, I would call it Atomic Dwarf.
Anyway, with the advent of the internet and personal web publishing, I thought that maybe AtomicDwarf would be a good name for a domain name. In 2002, I registered the domain name www.atomicdwarf.com. Until July 2003 I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. Finally, I’ve decided to use it to serve as a resource to people and showcase some of my skills.
I have modified this blog several times. This is its latest incarnation. I’d love to get some feedback from you. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your stay here.
