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.

Security theater

To me, the best evidence that the post-9/11 airport security procedures -- relieving people of their nail clippers and tiny pocketknives -- is nothing but (as
Bruce Schneier calls it) security theater, is a piece of equipment in my kitchen. My Kyocera mandolin slicer has the sharpest blade I've ever encountered -- my wife spent a chunk of fingertip to learn that -- and it's ceramic. Not a bit of metal on the whole gizmo.
