Retired
United States United States
Retired C programmer and Unix Sys Admin, then VC6 C++ MFC programmer. I moved to VC7 C++ 2003 in Oct of 04, and VC8 C++/CLI early in 06. I resisted C#; but now it is my preferred language. I'm through with upgrading. I'll stay at VC2008 and C#, as I only program for fun anymore.

Update 2019: I have moved back to Unix: Linux Cinnamon Mint. I got aggravated with Windows and VC. I've returned to my roots. Now, my preferred language is Java. I use IntelliJ as my IDE; but write my code with Emacs. I thoroughly enjoy Linux and being back on Unix! I've published a little game on the Kindle Fire and a little apt for Android phones. I hope you still love to code as much as I do when you reach my age... advanced 70's.
