I’m James, and this is the most recent occurrence of my blog. I like to write about “Computers, Life, and General Randomness.” If anything you read here interests you, feel free to stick around. 🙂

“The best of FremLog”
Thrilling episode selections which may or may not be representative of the whole!
- Trial by DRM – In which I turn to a life of crime
- The truth about my sisters injury – In which motor-cross racing is discussed.
- I spoke and corporate America listened! – In which I learn of a sinister plot
- 10 reasons not to buy Windows Vista – In which hype is dissected.
First off, I’m a Christian. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose from the dead. I believe that the entire Bible is true. It is the perfect word of God.
I’m very interested in computers in general. I’ve got 4 computers in the house running Debian Linux and variants. I’m learning how to program “the real way” using C.
I enjoy wasting my time playing video games. I’ve programmed a few myself, an activity that’s ridiculously more fun then it should be. I like to claim that I’m just practicing for the real stuff.
I’m currently involved with FIRST Robotics. My team is FVC-40 “Grep Lurch Grab”. You can check out our website via the link on the sidebar.
Let’s see… Oh, yes. I’m also an Eagle scout. About midway though Scouting, I discovered how much fun it was to write skits; Those little, 5 minute play type things. Then I expanded to humorous essays. Now, I’m writing a blog. I’ve been blogging for about the past 3 years or so. While I don’t have a huge audience, my writing skills have improved immensely. In general, the stuff you’ll find on my blog is not stuff I’d consider good enough to publish in a newspaper. It’s about second or third draft quality. I pretty much just need to write stuff to keep my mind clear. Not too bad of a habit, I guess.
I am currently studying Computer Science and Engineering at LeTourneau University. This takes up quite a bit of my time, so my posts have been rather few and far between as of late.
About this site
I’m using a service called wordpress.com, a free hosting dealie that uses this great blogging engine, WordPress.
The title, FremLog, has it’s origins back when I was beta testing World of Warcraft and Wyvern. I wanted a social, hobbitish name, and “Frem” was what I came up with. It’s completely original, and it didn’t return any relevant hits on Google, so I decided to keep it around. I use it on IRC and social networking websites a lot. It’s my happy, irrelevant screen name. It seemed to make sense to name the second blog using it.
Much later, I discovered that the word “frem” seems to mean “forward” in Danish. I thought it made for a neat tagline.
