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.

There is an
Washington Post article today in which a bunch of travel agents are whining about airlines reducing their commissions. Well, as far as I'm concerned, the airlines should eliminate their commissions; the days in which that business model made sense are over. If people want help booking travel, let them pay for it directly; for most people, simply buying an airline ticket, it makes much more sense to do it online themselves. Of course, I have a pair of potential biases: Nearly every travel agent I've ever dealt with regularly messed up in one way or another, and plus I'm a control freak.
