My programming career began when I was 10 years old and my father brought home a Timex/Sinclair 1000 with a whopping 2K of RAM. Turbo Pascal 3.0 was the first software package I bought for my first PC, a Tandy 1000. I did most of my early professional software development in C/C++ in various flavors of Unix. These days I work mostly with Java on Linux or OSX, with a bit of Perl coding and Javascript thrown into the mix.

comment Google Chrome doesn't keep my “allow all cookies” setting
For me at least, the problem with the dev version is not saving the cookie settings, it's the actual cookie handling, and only (ironically) with Google's sites - Gmail/Reader/Voice/etc. I didn't have cookie problems on any other sites. I.E. before upgrading to that version, cookies on their sites were working fine. Upgrade (w/o changing any settings) and suddenly google's site (but nobody else's) starts giving the error that I have cookies turned off. (Which is demonstrably false, because if you look at the cookies you can see they are there)
