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 Where can I find "C/C++ Users Journal" code archive?
You can access most of the Dr. Dobbs archives at drdobbs.com/architecture-and-design/dr-dobbs-archive/240169474. I tried searching for the article number. Is this the article you are looking for: "Generic: Change the Way You Write Exception-Safe Code — Forever By Andrei Alexandrescu and Petru Marginean, December 01, 2000"?

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.
