I enjoy applying my education, experience, and creativity toward software research, architecture, or engineering. However, at this point in my career, I'd be very open to shifting to a more managerial role, e.g., Engineering Lead, V.P., etc.

I have decades worth of experience on various Unix systems, the last several of which have been Mac OS X: everything from Bash and Perl scripting to advanced I/O, multithreading, and network programming in C, C++, or Java. Also have experience with Objective-C, Cocoa, and LLVM.

I also developed and maintain a finite state automata compiler and runtime system (CHSM) that has been used by major corporations and research institutions for managing complex real-time reactive systems including phone networks and particle physics experiments.

Specialties: C++, Java, and Perl class architecture and development; computer programming languages; compilers; finite state automata; document indexing & searching; XML and JSON processing; image formats and metadata processing.

comment Google Apps e-mail being rejected from some domains
The problem with that idea is that I'd be connecting from my desktop machine which obviously isn't the same as connecting from Google's MX servers.

I just got off the phone with sonic.net's tech support. They don't check SPF, but do check A records. However, they see no evidence in their logs that they ever received any delivery attempt. This means the problem has to be on Google's end.

Another friend of mine who also uses Google Apps for e-mail added an SPF record and he has no problems sending mail to sonic.net. One difference is that he has an A record for his domain. I'll see about adding an A record and then seeing what happens.

Also, I don't understand the relevance of creating a catch-all user.

Yes, I am sending to a specific user: a friend of mine, which is how I noticed that it didn't work when the mail bounced. The mail also bounced by sending to support@sonic.net.

But that doesn't explain why it would work when sending e-mail from my company which also uses Google Apps mail (as I stated).
