Peter is tired of being called "Mr. Chen", even so certain individuals insist on it. No, he's not chinese.

Peter has seen lots of boxes you youngsters wouldn't even accept as calculators. He is proud of having visited the insides of a 16 Bit Machine.

In his spare time he ponders new ways of turning groceries into biohazards, or tries to coax South American officials to add some stamps to his passport.

Beyond these trivialities Peter works for Klippel[^], a small german company that wants to make mankind happier by selling them novel loudspeaker measurement equipment.

Where are you from?[^]

Please, if you are using one of my articles for anything, just leave me a comment. Seeing that this stuff is actually useful to someone is what keeps me posting and updating them.

Q: How does the voting work? I thought it is the average, but...
A: It is a weighted average. Votes by new members weight less than votes by contributors.
Membership levels range from bronze to platinum. a platinum vote has the same effect as 5 bronze votes.

Q: How about a CD/DVD with CodeProject articles?
A: It would certainly be nice to have an offline collection of articles to browse. However, there are a points against it
(1) Legal: unlike other sites, CodeProject leaves the copyright with the author, and allows code to be published under a wide variety of licences. This is nice, but also means collecting all articles on a CD is a legal mine field. At least each author would have to be contacted for written consent to agree with his articles being included.
(2) Up-to-date articles: "do you want your old, buggy articles floating around on the web?" You can update your articles on CP, but you can't on a CD.
(3) Money. Running a site with even a few full-time employees is expensive, Bandwidth being only a part of it. CP is paid for mostly by advertisement, and maybe you noticed that CP ads are always on topic, and never intrusive. CP needs people visiting the site.
(4) Community. CP would be a cold and barren place without the community. And the community needs people visiting CP.
