Here you are sir:

Tell me about yourself. Ex. Where your from, age, **, past life experiences, past programming experiences, etc.

My real name is Jordan DeLozier. I currently live in Hendersonville, NC which is also where I grew up. I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies such as hiking, shooting guns, shooting bows, programming, reading, gaming, and chess.

What do you expect to be doing five years from now? Ten years from now?

What I would like to be doing five years from now is sitting on a beach somewhere but in reality I will probably be living in a larger city working a 9-5 type job modifying/creating programs or making EDI maps.

What made you choose programming?

I have an innate urge to "create" things. I'm not sure where it comes from but as a kid I use to manifest this urge by doing wood projects or taking apart/putting back together toys and engines. I now create programs!

What is your favorite language? If you don't have a single favorite, what do you prefer to use over the other?

English… Just kidding, C++.

What would be your Ideal job?

Actually, I’d like to be my own boss one day. I’ve always wanted to run a successful large scale software business. I’m very happy with my current job, except for the traveling.

What are the most important rewards you expect in your career or future career?

A family that can depend on my income and live with little or no stress (about money).

What are your strengths, weaknesses, and interests?

Strengths: Good at solving problems. Good understanding of people.
Weakness: Far to trusting in people and assume they will always do good.
Interests: Just about anything. I love learning anything new


What motivates you to put forth your greatest effort?

Knowing that other people will benefit from what I create. Take a look at the Free Joomla Component and Weekly Stats for vBulletin. I’ve invested a lot of time in those two projects and just seeing all of the responses, visits and sign-ups is enough gratitude for me!

Being the creator, what enticed you to build CodeCall?

I was constantly searching for how to do something and looking for code already built (so I could save time). The original purpose of CodeCall was to house all of that information for me. I had a notebook full of print-outs, hand written sheets of paper and other programming stuff. With the forum I can keep it in one central location and it can benefit others. I use it every day to look up information.

How much time and effort have you really put into this place? Why do I ask? Because I know!

Oh wow… I spend at least 3-4 hours a day and often more. Sometimes I spend the whole day updating, rebuilding the style or creating graphics for it. I read every post everyone makes. It is so bad that my Fiancé accuses me of doing nothing but sitting on the computer!

What keeps you here?

I own it.

What is your future outlook on this community and what you might be willing to do for it?

Anything to keep it growing, on focus and alive! I’ve put enough time into that I feel about it differently. Someone was asking to purchase it the other day and the only thing I could think of saying was “no” (as in, I didn’t even think about the money being offered).

I would invest most of it in realestate and try to turn as much of it into more profit as I could. A chunk ($50,000) of it would go to promoting my websites and businesses. I would give my brother and brother-in-law enough to pay off their debts (mortgages). I'd also take my wife on a vacation, probably a cruise. The remainder would go into a savings account and donated to various animal groups.

I think this happened a lot back in medieval times. You know, nobility marrying their family to "keep the blood pure".
