The answer should be E.a is here a variable declared in the code and not a symbol used in conditional compilation as indicated by the #if token.The answer is of course A. Thanks and credit goes to CPallini[^] for his well founded Solution 2[^]. (I tend to make assumptions how certain...

While teaching myself BASIC and assembler on a Commodore 64 in the early 80's I got seriously infected by a tough kind of programming virus. The disease turned chronic and has since then been diagonsed as incurable. So I thought I'd put my affliction to good use and studied computer science which, after some trial and error, finally fetched me a degree.

This is some of the ground I've covered over the last 20 years:

  • Database design & programming

  • Application programming

  • Systems programming

  • Web applications

  • Multimedia/HTPC platform development

  • eCommerce software platform

  • Design & development of FAST based search solutions

I will not engage in listing all the languages, frameworks and tools I've worked with. The list would be too long, most probably mainly meaningless and judging by what has been accumulated just over the last 2 years surely incomplete too.

There are of course some languages that deserve to be mentioned as they played a vital role in me becoming what I am now.


  • Assembler (6502)

  • C

  • Scheme (Lisp dialect)

  • Java

  • C#

The last four years were spent designing and programming FAST based search solutions using FAST Enterprise Search Platform 5.1 & 5.3. Since MS has already announced that FAST ESP will not be further developed and will die by 2017/2018, we are now looking into other technologies like Lucene/Solr, Sinequa and FAST Sharepoint Search.
