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.

More reading

I finally read
The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-Time, and while it was quite good, it wasn't as good as I'd been led to expect. Particularly, I enjoyed the first half much more than the second. Also, forgive me for being so ethnocentric, but I find reading British English quite irksome: Every time I read dustbin or biscuit or boot it just stops me dead in my tracks. Still, I'd recommend it, if only because the narrative perspective is really fresh.

I also read Real Simple: The Organized Home, and was a little disappointed. I love the magazine, but the book seemed much higher-level, and most of the good hacks were ones I'd already seen in the mag.

My wife just finished "Curious Incident", and enjoyed it well enough, as she is interested in these types of things. As in, I'm sick of saying "Mel, I do *not* have Asperger's!"
