I run Farsight Software, a software consulting firm. Good people, team approach, reasonable rates. Give us a shout on info@farsightsoftware.com.

I'm a software engineer with a particular interest in web technologies (esp. JavaScript). I also do lots of work in C#, Java, and several other languages. I've been doing this professionally for 20 some-odd years, goofing with computers for 10 years before that, but I hope I'm not this guy.

On occasion, I write up snippets of nifty tricks or techniques in my anemic little blog.
