I've been a developer for over 30 years in one form or another. I learnt Pascal at University and my first job was programming in FORTRAN 66. I've since moved to Silverlight with C# & .NET via Ada, C and C++.

Over the years I've used most operating systems (apart from MacOS), starting with PR1MOS and then moving onto various flavours of Unix. I'm now exclusively on Windows, but really should get back into other areas. The only things that are holding me back are lack of time and resources!

comment Incorporating Women into a Fantasy World Army?
Please don't forget that physical attributes follow a bell curve distribution and while the peak (i.e. the level where most people fall) is lower for women than men, the curves overlap so that there will be some women who are stronger, faster, heavier, etc. than some men. It's these women that will be able (and willing) to compete with men for combat roles.

@pnuts - leaving an @downvoter comment is pretty pointless. There's little chance that they'll come back to check.

comment I posted a canonical Q&A to a problem I solved, but now it's marked as duplicate to an older question with an incomplete solution
@sashoalm older questions can be duplicates of new ones. However, that's not the issue here.
