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.

Gas prices, of course, are higher than they've been since I started driving. A couple of days ago I had my first-ever over-$30 fill-up. However, we can always be happy we don't live in Europe. I remember going to London in 1994, and walking past a gas station and seeing an amount on the sign that looked about the same as what I was used to back home; say, 1.35. A few steps later I realized, holy crap, that's not dollars, it's pounds, which meant about $2.30. A few steps more, I realized, that's per liter! So, almost US$10.00 per gallon. I bet that would make a dent in your driving habits.
