I've been working as a developer in the world of mostly-proprietary software for about 15 years. Until a few months ago, I worked for NuMega Technologies (makers of SoftICE, now part of Compuware), where I worked on the BoundsChecker and JCheck products in the roles of senior developer and eventually development manager. My experience is primarily in the DOS and Windows environments, but I've also worked with CP/M, Xenix, OS/2 and OS/390, using mostly C and C++ (but also some REXX, Java, and other stuff). Now, I just Linux (most of the time). I am the webmaster for for the BEAST/BSE project and for my local LUG (www.monadlug.org). I'm starting to contributor code for BEAST. I'm also the co-author of a small but useful Python utility called makefaq.
Timj just reminded me that I hadn't posted for a while, which is true, so here goes.
Last week was pretty non-productive. The kids were home all week with school vacation, and I had several appointments that ended up clustered together. Also this is the time of year when winter really starts to become tiresome (epecially when you live in a place like New Hampshire). But enough complaining.
I took on a small contract job for a local company, web stuff with PHP and mySQL, so I'm spending some time on that in between work for my company. The nice thing is that all this work uses the same set of technologies, so it's easy to make transitions back and forth.
I need to do some more work on BEAST soon. It's funny that that this is currently the only thing I'm working on these days that where I'm using a compiled language! :-)

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
