Hello there! My name's Jordan Earls and I'm a programmer. Recently, I've been doing almost exclusively work in .Net with C#, a bit of raw IL, and in some cases a hefty serving of code generating T4(it's the meta-future!). Sometimes I do a bit of embedded/electronic work with C and C++(http://mbed.org rocks, btw). And finally, I have at least some competence in Ruby, Delphi, and Javascript.

I currently work for PreEmptive Solutions on the Dotfuscator team and troll the dotfuscator tag on occasion.

Most of my personal projects are open source and BSD licensed. The majority of them are at bitbucket with the rest of them being listed on github

Also, you can follow me on the twitters @earlzdotnet

comment Why do ethernet cables have 8 wires?
And I would say the future proofing argument worked. Cat5E can carry gigabit signals by utilizing all of the pairs :)

comment Can a virtualized machine have the CPU and RAM resources of multiple underlying physical machines?
@Izkata well, when performance is bad enough, developing the software to make use of such a thing would be pointless because it'd have no purpose

comment Can a virtualized machine have the CPU and RAM resources of multiple underlying physical machines?
This is awesome! I had no idea this existed. I was assuming the answer is "no, this flat out isn't possible because performance would be terrible"

comment Best way of updating my (non-critical) website?
@Adrian I know. I usually wait until I actually implement a solution before marking it as the answer

comment Best way of updating my (non-critical) website?
@Adrian hmm.. I didn't think of using rsync. That could also be extremely handy for uploading new files.
