A golf fanatic trapped in a programming career (which I quite enjoy, mind you).

I'm a moderator on ebooks.stackexchange.com. Come check it out!


For my employer I mainly develop C#, WPF, C/AL (Client/server Application Language) for Dynamics NAV (with some .Net interop) and less often now, Progress 4GL. On the rare occasion I write iPhone/iPad and Android applications for my employer.

Outside of work I have dabbled in Lisp, Perl, C, F# and Clojure (and ClojureCLR).


Check out the top 100 users in a given tag (helpful for learning interesting things about tags you are interested in).


Interesting books I'd recommend:

comment How to disable Ctrl+Shift keyboard layout switch (for the same input language) in Windows?
Thank you for this... was driving me nuts because CTRL+SHIFT+CLICK opens things up as administrator, but the CTRL+SHIFT would cause my keyboard layout to change.

comment How do I find all lines with more than N occurences of a character using Vim
The file is pipe delimited and the problem is that there are some non-escaped pipe characters found in some fields that should not be there (causing an issue with a program that is based on the assumption that there are no pipe characters unless they are being used as a delimiter). I wanted to go through the file to get an idea of how many lines were "illegal". Anyway, your answered worked great. Thanks for the help.
