Software… and stuff…

Welcome to my blog on, well, you know…
I’ve been in the software business for over 20 years and in that time I’ve seen operating systems, methodologies, languages and hardware come and go (who remembers RTL-2 on RSX-11, Jackson Structured Programming, Swiss cheese sized disks?!?)…
I like to think that I’m a pretty regular guy, and a pretty regular developer, but I have the desire to be a *better* developer (I gave up on trying to be better guy years ago ;^) and so over the last 20 years I have tried hard to learn from my (and others ;^) mistakes. In the end I think that is all that “experience” really is!
This blog will contain a collection of some of the things I’ve learned along the way, hopefully some of it might even be useful to somebody else. If not, my therapist says it’s good for me anyway ;^)
