Writing code since 1979
I have been a professional software engineer for over 10 years. I have written many kinds of software, but my particular strengths are interactive graphics applications, compilers and interpreters, and algorithms.

I also enjoy writing, woodworking, and home improvement. Also this.

Grrrr. You would think, in this age of relative maturity of e-commerce, that it would be possible to search for a product using a simple boolean query. But no, not one of the couple of dozen e-tailers I've checked today (including comparison sites like
mySimon) can find me 2-line phones with caller ID. 2-line, yes. Caller ID, no problem. But searching only for phones with both is impossible. Furthermore, on Amazon, if I ask for just multi-line phones, and then look for "similar items," I get multi-line phones that weren't in the original list. Get with it, folks. By the way, I just got Uniden EXS9966, which I love, but I need two more and was hoping to get somewhat cheaper models. Sadly, I have a couple of nice 2-line phones without caller ID, but a 2-line caller ID box is $65, and I can replace the phones for less than that!
