I've been paid as a programmer since 1982 with experience in Pascal, and C++ (both self-taught), and began writing Windows programs in 1991 using Visual C++ and MFC. In the 2nd half of 2007, I started writing C# Windows Forms and ASP.Net applications, and have since done WPF, Silverlight, WCF, web services, and Windows services.

My weakest point is that my moments of clarity are too brief to hold a meaningful conversation that requires more than 30 seconds to complete. Thankfully, grunts of agreement are all that is required to conduct most discussions without committing to any particular belief system.

I'm not an IT guy. Programming has been a hobby for me (and occasionally useful) ever since a sister in-law introduced me to a TI-99 4/A about a million years ago.

The creative challenge is relaxing and enjoyable. As such, I'd never mess up a fun hobby by doing it for a living.

Now, if I can just get Code Project to add "Truck Driver" to the list of job titles in the profiles...

  • Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.
  • The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.
  • People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.
  • Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.
  • Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think.
  • We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
  • You can make very bad teams with very good individuals.
  • Admitting mistakes means you have a sense of responsibility in your actions and that shows you are more matured than almost anyone. -Nithin
