I am a contract programmer working in Dublin, Ireland. I started programming back in the 80s on an old Sinclair ZX Spectrum and haven't stopped since. I started working as a professional programmer in 1998 and became a contractor in 2005. For most of my career, I've mostly worked on line-of-business type applications for organisations of various sizes, initially in languages like Visual Basic 6 and Java and more recently in C# and Visual Basic.NET, with some PHP thrown in for good measure along the way. I've also worked on the database side, with MySQL, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. I tend to be fairly agnostic in these things...

comment Useful Command-line Commands on Windows
Note that start can be a bit funny if you have files with spaces in their names. If start's first argument is quoted, it interprets it as a request to change the window title. So instead of running: start "My File.txt" you have to enter: start "" "My File.txt" This drove me nuts until someone explained it to me!
