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.

Shakespeare doth these titles bequeath

I'm reading the novel
Kings of Infinite Space, and got to thinking about other books, movies, etc. whose titles were lifted from Shakespeare but are otherwise non-Shakespearean. I'm sure there are a million of them, but this is all I've got so far:
  • Brave New World
  • Something Wicked This Way Comes
  • Infinite Jest
  • Outrageous Fortune
  • What Dreams May Come
    Can anyone suggest others? Near-misses, such as The Name of the Rose, don't count. (Update: I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of the book, but it sort of got silly after that. Read The Chronicles of Doodah instead.)
