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.

Win or loose

I readily admit to being a bit of a pedant when it comes to English, but the very common mistake -- even among otherwise well-written people -- that is driving me nuts lately is this: The word lose, as in "win or lose," only has one freakin' o in it!!!


Ya, can we loose the extra 'o' already?
