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.

I am not Ian Fleming

I just ran across this hysterical
thread on some James Bond website. Apparently someone there found my How to Write a James Bond Movie essay and somehow got the impression that instead of being a joke, that I am an actual screenwriter giving real advice. There follows a lot of really in-depth discussion about how Bond movies are so much more than formula, blah blah subtext, and how some of the recent movies succeed or fail in that regard. It circles back around to who am I, anyway, and eventually concludes, "So basically, this is just some random guy's blog." Bingo. Rule of thumb: On the web, assume an author doesn't know what they're talking about unless you have good evidence to the contrary.
