In real life, a research chemist. Bitten by the bug for instrument automation, and then numeric and kinetic modeling, I turned to the dark side (or to the light), programming all sorts of lovely things. Alas, one needs to make a living, so off I went to POS, and now, the insurance industry.

Useful stuff: reducing concepts to bare abstractions and then coding as generic a solution as possible (implicitly extensible). In a sense, applications that "don't care" about much to do their job.

Doing now for money what I used to do simply for pleasure - not much different than a cheap hooker.

At best? An Optimistic Cynic. - No better; No worse.


Pathological Genius

I have done things . . .

"Dispensing wisdom and chaos with uncanny poise and unflinching bravado."
