I starting writing code when Apple IIe was all the rage (1982?). Graduated Mechanical Engineering in New Zealand, so I could build Robots. Took up Commerical diving in Asia for a few years to make some quick money (Spent it all). I have been writing C/C++/Assembly and building underwater robots since MS QuickC/Quick Assembler in 1989. I currently live in Australia and work mosly with MS VisualC.
