I'm a software developer at a freight logistics firm. I graduated with B.S. Computer Science from Arkansas Tech University. I grew up in western Honshu, Japan.

I taught myself HTML/CSS when I was in middle school. I was fascinated by the design aspect (graphics/typography/layout) of creating websites. In high school I taught myself some C++ and Javascript. In college I studied programming, doing a fair amount of coding in C++ with a little of bit of Java and assembly as well (and became enamored of vi).

Now days I code for a living, developing client-server apps in C# (and previously VB.Net), writing units tests with NUnit & RhinoMocks, and interacting with DB2 and the occasional mainframe COBOL program, with WinForms on the front end. I do some Python and PowerShell scripting on the side to make my life easier.

I am passionate about the field of public transit and transportation networks in general. I hope to develop my craft and apply it to solving interesting problems in those areas.

comment How to remove this symbol “^@” with vim?
Same problem for me, I couldn't get <Ctrl-V><Ctrl-2> (as well as the one with <Ctrl-Shift-2>) to work either, but this worked.

comment Set-ExecutionPolicy using batch file + powershell script
Yea, which is why when I launch powershell to change the execution policy I use -verb runas which will bring up the uac prompt and launch powershell as administrator.
