About This Site
Originally, Jake Ortman created a blog at jake.orty.com as a personal site that would host his resume, portfolio, and the like, but it's slowly blossomed into something bigger, and he's decided to split things up a bit -- resume, portfolio and all that fun stuff, over at his personal site while the blog that everybody has come to love will be posted at UtterlyBoring.com. The site you see now is a result of that split.
UtterlyBoring.com is produced by Jake Ortman (e-mail, resume), a 32-year-old dad, percussionist, wanna-be Web programmer/designer, sysadmin, IT consultant and jack-of-all-trades computer geek, living in Bend, Oregon. He created this so that his expensive journalism and technology degree isn't getting totally wasted. In addition to editing this site in his free time, he is the IT Director and graphic designer at both Sunray and Discover Sunriver. He has LinkedIn and Facebook profiles if you're trying to stalk him. He will not be posting on Twitter.

If you're reading this, you have too much time on your hands.
The site will be updated nearly-daily. Typically, if it's not going to be updated, it'll be Friday or Saturday because those are my days off from the day job and I'm not glued in front of my computer those days. I actually like to see my family now and again.
