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.

I just finished
Wolves of the Calla, the fifth book in Stephen King's Dark Tower series. While I haven't liked much else King has written in the last decade or so, I'm quite fond of this series. As I read it, I keep thinking that if they're ever going to film any of it, they'd better do it soon before Clint Eastwood is too old to play the lead; I can't imagine anyone else in that role. For Eddie, perhaps Edward Norton. For Susannah, I always imagine Alfre Woodard, but I suspect they'd go with someone prettier; perhaps Halle Berry, if they can afford her. This site suggests Tim Burton to direct; I love Burton's work, but I don't think he's right for this project at all. Too bad Sergio Leone and John Ford are dead. In any event, I shouldn't be too eager for a Dark Tower film; my wife asked recently why I liked King's books so much, but not his movies. My answer was quite simple: Because Stephen King movies suck. (The only exceptions that come to mind are Stand By Me, and perhaps The Shining.)
