Since embarking on a mission 15 years ago to know everything about software development, the only thing that has grown significantly is the list of things I still don't know yet.

Currently I don't know everything about microcontrollers and the .net micro framework.

I've recently decided to go freelance. If you're in need of a software developer and want to know more:

comment How can I fix Problems with interlaced video jerking/flicking when playedback on DVD players? (Mixing own DVD from raw footage)
@quack quixote: Interesting point on the combined tag search. I'd still argue that separating the tags doesn't gain anything. By separating them I now can't mark "video-editing" as an interesting tag (or an ignored tag), and I'm not interested in most of the generic questions marked with just "editing". I don't see the problem with multiple "foo-editing" tags, it would allow people to filter to their specific tastes. Fair enough though, if that's how the SU community prefers it, I don't spend as much time on SU as I do on SO, so I'll leave it up to you. (Thanks for feeding back)

@quack quixote: I don't see how those tag changes are any better. As you are a mod I thought I would ask for your reasons rather than just changing back myself. 1) Why split video-editing? How is "editing" on it's own a useful tag for this question (Or "video" for that matter). There are lots of video-editing questions on SU that would probably benefit from being grouped under this more specific tag. 2) Why remove the "Cinelerra" tag? This question is directly about this application, there is plenty of precedent for application name tags.
