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.

I saw this on some dumb piece of paraphernalia the other day, but the numerical date of next New Year's is pretty cool-looking: 01-01-01.
Cathy and I also noticed that this is binary for 21, and that's technically the first day of the 21st century (though I keep saying, when people say that, that they aren't even sure when Christ was born, so bickering over whether there was a year 0 is moot anyway; for all we know, we could be off by 5 years either way). Similar geeky date trivia: 11-19-1999 was the last day with all odd digits until 1-3-3111, and 2-2-2000 was the first with all even digits since 8-28-888.
