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.

Clocks are big, machines are heavy

In today's
Bleat, Lileks talks about how glad he is that clocks are now, by and large, silent. I could not disagree more. I like ticking. I like those old clocks with the flippy numbers so much that a few years ago I bought one on eBay. As I sit here right now, I'm accompanied by a big, fancy cuckoo clock my wife gave me for our anniversary some years ago, which ticks quite loudly. I find the sound indescribably soothing, and when I work elsewhere in my house than the office, I miss it.
