Physicist by training, now a programmer by choice. My languages of preference are Java and C, although I am also skilled in C# and many assembly languages, and competent in Perl, general shell scripting, and a handful of other languages I use less often. I can speak basic SQL. I write my HTML by hand and prefer table-free page layout.

I use Linux by preference, but also develop extensively under Windows. I've developed under various embedded and custom OS's and RTOS's (primarily Microware OS-9 and VxWorks), assorted UNIXes, VAX/VMS, and assorted Windows releases. I've played with RSTS/E and a few other operating systems that are unknown today.

My home website is pretty sparse, but will some day be populated. Really.

comment Can I use a trusted CA certificate on multiple sites?
+1. Much more authoritative (and accurate) than my answer. I'll delete my answer rather than fix it as I have nothing to add to your answer.

comment Do I need to defrag unix filesystems?
ext2 and ext3 can be defragmented. They just don't need it in normal circumstances.
