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.

eBay tells me that a credit card charge they attempted was declined, and when I call my credit-card company, they tell me that they have frozen everyone who does a lot of internet transactions from doing any more until they call and give their okay. Apparently this is a reaction to the Egghead security breach, in which a lot of credit card numbers were stolen. Kudos for their diligence, although I would think they would have the records to know that I've never bought anything from Egghead on that card. Update: Actually, on further reflection, I think I might have bought my hub from Egghead...
