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.

Why is it that the
Olympic coverage covers sports like shot-put and Greco-Roman wrestling, which as far as I know no-one really watches, and covers every insignificant qualifying heat of track and swimming, and broadcasts 15-minute-long biographies of obscure American athletes, while there is zero coverage of the sports that I'd really like to see, such as fencing, table tennis, and martial arts? (After reading today's excellent Slate article, add to that list Korfball; we played a very similar game in high-school gym class, which I believe the teacher called "fungo-ball".)
