Die-hard developer.
Not afraid to go low-level (even down to assembly when needed during debugging).
Prefers readable code over short, complex, 'would-be-smart', unreadable code.
Musical preferences: EBM (Front 242), Synthpop (Human League, Heaven 17), Electronic stuff (Kraftwerk) and most things that don't fit mainstream (Severed Heads, Isao Tomita).
Likes 80's pinballs (Comet, High Speed)

comment App for iPhone that can stitch images of a whiteboard
This only works if the whiteboard drawing is very wide and not too high. In practice, I need to take multiple pictures both horizontally and vertically to get one big drawing.

comment Which bitset implementation should I use for maximum performance?
@MooingDuck: True. I use typedef's to simplify migration from one type to another, but not to make it effortless. I also use typedef's for collections so I can hide the real implementation (list, vector, deque, ...), which reduces the real code changes with about 90% if I ever change container type.
