Chris is the Co-founder, Administrator, Architect, Chief Editor and Shameless Hack who wrote and runs CodeProject. He is also co-founder of Developer Media and ContentLab.IO. He's been programming since the 80's and has been, in various guides, an astrophysicist, bacyard mechanic, mathematician, physicist, breeder of carnivorous plants, hydrologist, geomorphologist, defence intelligence researcher and then, when all that got a bit rough on the nerves, a web developer.

His programming experience includes C/C++, C#, SQL, MFC, ASP.NET, TypeScript and far, far too much FORTRAN. He has worked on PocketPCs, Old mainframes, new Macs, cheap phones, and a CRAY YMP C90 behemoth but finds notebooks take up less desk space.

He is kind to small animals and has a soft spot for cheesecake.

Chris was born and bred in Australia but splits his time between Toronto and Melbourne, depending on the weather. For relaxation he is obsessively into road cycling, physiology, occasionally snowboarding and rock climbing, and wishes he were a storm chaser.

Groups

Below is the list of groups in which the member is participating

ASP.NET Community
United States United States
The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.

Chris Maunder9-Jan-04 10:35

So the day I decide to fly out of Toronto to head back to sunny, hot, cloudless Australia it snows. Actually it dumps. I have recently bought a second hand Subaru in the hope that it will treat me a little more kindly than the buses did last season. Or the bus stops, at least. The uncovered bus stops in the howling -40C blizzards.

Anyway.

So I have a car and I have absolutely zero experience in driving in the snow. I actually have fairly limited experience in driving on the right hand side of the road (we drive on the left hand in Australia, as God intended) so I decided the only way to get experience was to hop in the car, find some really icy stuff, and start pushing on alternate pedals until something interesting happened.

I tried lots of things. I tried turning corners at speed, then I tried turning corners really, really slowly after my heartbeat slowed down a little. I tried going slow. I tried going fast, and I even tried going in a straight line. I played in slushy snow, icy snow, deep powdery snow and that special grey chunky stuff that's kicked up by the snowploughs. I discovered what happens when wiper blades freeze up and, much to dismay of those who heard my childish giggles, discovered I have heated rear view mirrors. I also discovered that while driving in a snowstorm with the windows down is certainly instantly gratifying, those little slushy puddles you get once the snow turns into it's less exiting form suck.

So my score card for me first ever foray into driving in a snow storm is as follows.
Driving in a straight line                 Excellent
Stopping                                   Well Done
Stopping without hitting anything else     Needs work
Turning                                    Excellent
Turning in the direction I wished          Poor
Taking off from a standstill               Fair
Taking off from a standstill and spraying  Outstanding
the car behind with large grey chunks of
slush
Playing with the heated wipers, heated     Excellent
rear mirrors, fog lights, rear wiper,
intermittant wipers, washers and 
demisters
Concentrating on the task at hand          Poor
Keeping on the correct side of the road    Not to bad, thank you very much
