My alter ego is playing guitar in some stadium right now as you read this.

Back on earth, I'm probably reading a book on programming, practicing scales and modes on guitar or piano (driving my children insane), playing billiards, or cooking.

My addiction to programming started with a VIC-20 (3.5K of RAM !!!) and has spiraled out of control ever since.

My addiction to music, guitars, synthesizers, and sound in general probably began when I was born.

Computers are very straight... They always do exactly what we tell them to do... Only, much too often what we tell them to do is not really what we want them to do Smile | :)

Writing Software is one of the most creative tings one can do. I have been doing this for more than ten years now and still having a lot of fun with it. Besides doing software for HMI's on C# for business, I enjoy very much to implement interesting algorithms and analyse the mathematics they are based on in my leisure time Smile | :)

I have been working for some corrupted government agencies in Canada who are known for scandal and milking tax payers' money. I always feel like I am in the wrong industry and want to try something more interesting because life is short. I am so tired of technologies after being in I.T. for so many years, I am a bit sick of everyday waking up and work for money, especially dealing with stupid annoying people, company politics and policies. But every time they give me a paycheck, I shut up temporary. Then the cycle begins again.....
