I've developed software for Microsoft platforms since the early 90's.

I have a lot of previous experience with C++ and MFC, and have been working with C# and .NET for the past decade.

Multi-threaded applications, networking, and communications have always been my specialty.

I've been developing for the iOS platform since the first iPhone was introduced and also have experience developing for Android and Google Glass.

More recently I've been focusing on web application development using ASP.NET MVC, JavaScript and jQuery and I've also spent some time working with Node.js.

I am a certified ScrumMaster and have successfully implemented Scrum at several companies.

comment System insomnia! Wakes up after 50 seconds after going to sleep
Never found a solution for Windows 7. I recently installed a fresh copy of Windows 8 and that seems to have fixed it.

comment Is there a way to disable “low disk space” alert in Windows 7?
Actually, you want to add a new DWORD value, not a new key.

comment How to prevent command line wildcard processor from evaluating short file names
I found a way to disable the generation of short file names: support.microsoft.com/kb/210638 Is this what you are referring to? It doesn't appear to affect existing short file names, however.
