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.

Reaching the Dark Tower

I finished
The Dark Tower a couple of days ago, and Cory beat me to discussing it. By and large, I agree with all he said: It's far from perfect, but I was happy with the ending, and satisfied that it's over. I still think The Stand is his best work, but this series is certainly second. Unfortunately, I thought the earlier books of the series (and, for that matter, of King's career in general) were the best ones. Finally, a couple of non-spoiler nitpicks: (1) Was Insomnia a total red herring?, and (2) At one point the text reads, "Susannah leapt to her feet." Um, Susannah doesn't have feet, at least not at that point in the story.
