Interview With Erwin!

Anyone who has seen Dr. Erwin Loh's Avatar knows something about him already - he wears many hats. :D He is a physician and a lawyer, owns and administrates the largest Christian Forums on the planet, endlessly modifies code for his Board, graciously shares his work with the vBulletin Community, and still manages to find time for the really important things in his life - family and spirituality.

Note: After this interview was published, Erwin sold the Christian Forums and created a new Big Board, Avatar Chat.

At work, I review medical files, draft medicolegal advice and when I have time, check on my forum during my lunch break (I am typing this now from work during my lunch break!).

I get home usually late in the evening, and cook dinner if it's my turn to cook, eat and watch some TV, then do my daily gym workout. I then log on and check on my forum again, and do server maintenance and other stuff I need to do.

On weekends, I spend more time online doing server and site maintenance. I also try to spend time with my wife, by relaxing with friends or catching up on the latest movie.

I owe part of my journey to Christianity to Dr. Erwin's website. A lot of the familiar faces at CF's Orthodox section are registered on my board now, so I can thank him for that too. CF has really boomed and his vision is extraordinary.
