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.

A public service announcement: If your car has a passenger-side airbag, and you put your small children in that seat, and the airbag goes off, there is a very good chance that they will be
seriously injured or killed. I'm guessing, from the number of kids I see in the front seats of such cars, that people don't realize this. As an aside, please write your congressperson: The reason that airbags hurt children (and small adults) is that federal standards mandate that an airbag be able to stop a 200-pound person who isn't wearing their seat belt. I find it sickening that even one responsible person should be injured to save someone who isn't wearing their seat belt. Thinning the herd, as far as I'm concerned.
