A research and development programmer working for a pharmaceutical instrument company for the past 17 years.

I am one of those lucky people who enjoys his work and spends more time than he should either doing work or reseaching new stuff. I can also be found on playing DDO on the Cannith server (Send a tell to "Maetrim" who is my current main)

I am also a keep fit fanatic, doing cross country running and am seriously into [url]http://www.ryushinkan.co.uk/[/url] Karate at this time of my life, training from 4-6 times a week and recently achieved my 1st Dan after 6 years.

Well, I have just been around to see the estate agent today to get them to come round my house to re-evaluate it. It means that I am going to spend quite some time tonight cleaning up ready for their visit tomorrow. Eek! | :eek:

I have been doing quite a bit of DIY work recently. Thats included lots of painting, some plastering and replacing all the floorboards in the bathroom. The central heating system boiler was replaced earlier this year. We now have one with a timer in it which means you don't have to get up in the middle of a freezing house to turn it on - as long as you had set the timer first of course.

On other news, I got accepted into a CounterStrike clan www.mortal-souls.com[^]. They play CS, Day of Defeat (Another HL mod) and 1942, which I just got around to ordering today. Big Grin | :-D

I am still mainly a CS freak, so if you do play please visit our server, you can find a link to it on the website.

-------------------------------
Articles.

Well, I have been lacking enthusiasm about starting my next one, but I think its time to bite the bullit and get on with it. Its going to be a large plug-in module for my series. Hopefully it will provide customizable toolbars etc for the library. The rate its going, and if I get the virtual function features in as well, it could eventually become a full feldged product in itself, but I do not really fancy selling it to people. They can have it for free OMG | :OMG:

The other article I have in mind is a game with Green Alien | [Alien] as the hero. Its going to be a DirectX game very much like Repton 3, although if I ever learn to draw properly, it should have nice animations and difficult maps etc. Maybe when it gets close to completion I will request help from more gifted members of the CP community to do that side for me. I would even make them a co-author.


If you vote me down, my score will only get lower
