Interview with Chris D - XenForo Developer

We did our first Interview with Chris Deeming back in November 2013. Now almost 3 years later, he's still a fixture on XF.com but a lot has happened since then - he's up to 18,450+ posts, 18,300+ likes, 90+ resources, and... oh yeah, he became a XenForo Developer in November 2014. :einstein:

Of course, it's no secret that the XenForo Team is hard at work readying XF 2.0 for prime time, so we're especially thankful to Chris for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions for us. :tup:

When doing an interview we try to find out about the admin related things a person is doing, but we also try to get a glimpse at the essence of the person as well. We don't always succeed, but in this case I think we hit a home run! :D

One I had issues with was from Ikea, one of those flat-packs. I had to get some shelves too, but had a neighbour help. He slapped those together faster then an install of a XenForo forum. :eek: But the forum is a lot easier for me to "put together" then a desk!
Same here. It's like the 'simple 1-2-3' instructions are written in Greek :eek:

:ROFLMAO: Thanks for helping me install coffee on my monitor! :LOL:

Gonna bump this dinosaur, have to ask...

Chris D how do you tolerate using a single monitor? I wouldn't be able to do it :|

Oh, and why is there a roll of toilet paper in the box next to your desk :cautious:

The single monitor was only supposed to be temporary but unfortunately it's still the same!

Working on a single screen is somewhat natural to me. I do a heck of a lot of work on my laptop (13" screen!), be that because I'd rather work downstairs for some reason or because I'm working out of hours (often when doing other things like watching TV).

Had to laugh about the toilet paper comment. That is indeed what it looks like. It's actually, I'm led to believe, called "couch roll" or indeed, paper towel. My wife is a beauty therapist and she works in a salon. She doesn't do many treatments at home, but when she does, it happens in my office!

If it was a 360 degree photo then directly behind the shot of my desk you'd find a beauty couch, pretty pink pictures on the wall, a massive rack of nail polishes, and various devices used for modern torture such as a wax heater and a hot stone heater.
