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.

Dream code

Last night I spent the last few hours before bed working, and much of that time I spent on a routine that wasn't constructed nearly as cleanly as I wanted, but I couldn't see an easy way to fix it. Later, asleep, I dreamed of how to restructure it so it was much simpler and cleaner. It has been a couple of years since I last solved a coding problem in a dream, and it always seems to happen, not surprisingly, at crunch time when I'm spending most of my waking hours working.
