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.

Mike Pope writes about his-and-hers dueling Netflix queues. We have a more complex problem with Netflix: Each of us likes to bring Netflix DVDs with us when we travel. We can watch them on our laptops, and just drop them in the mail when from wherever we are when we're done. However, in the couple of weeks leading up to a trip, there's a very delicate timing issue: You want to try to have three fresh movies of the traveler's choosing in hand before, but not too far before, they travel. And you want to avoid having to send back the previous movies unwatched in order to get the timing right.
