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.

Just because it seems to be the trendy thing to do, I added a link over on the left to my wish list. I love as an information resource, although I seldom buy anything from them. The wish list is useful because I can look it up from the library when I don't have my Palm with me. Anyway, I often browse around by following the "people who bought this also bought..." links; I find it interesting that usually two or three clicks in any direction will bring me to something else I have already liked. Proof that people's likes are internally and externally consistent, or just the six-degrees-of-separation principle in action? My only complaint about is that I wish I could tell them when I've already read something, so (for example) it can stop recommending Signal to Noise to me.
