Hello, I'm Fred. I've been working with software since I was a kid, and the foreseeable future looks to hold more of the same.
When I was in 4th grade, I had a homework assignment where I was supposed to write out a list of prime numbers less than 100. Instead of writing it out by hand, I spent a couple of minutes writing a simple C program, and turned in a list of prime numbers less than 1,000,000.
Since then, I have enjoyed wasting countless hours (years) playing with various technologies, patterns, and code constructs, and occasionally learn something useful.
