No it is not. It sucks.

Yeah - C# .NET and C for pInvoke/interop because, y'know, operating system.

That's just gobbledygook

Dude, I'm talkin' to my peeps. Dodgy

Yeah, they're kinda irrelevant these days with all our biometric markers. But you should ask for them just for your own nostalgic purposes and your childrens' keepsake.

Not sure whether AGNOSTIC was available to me or not because as soon as dude said "How 'bout NO PREF?" I jumped at it. Still feel that way today. I am areligious. NO PREF.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

RE: What do you do for a living?
I'm another software engineer, but a slightly weird one. I write safety-related software for railways primarily to do things like control power and air conditioning across city-wide infrastructure[1], and to push trains around[2]. I dabble fairly deeply in protocol design of various forms, and software architecture. As this infrastructure is central to much of what our customer businesses do there tends to be a fair bit of business logic as well as system automation and systems integration involved. I have been involved with web architecture for a while and I pull in a few dollars here and there from a book I contributed to a few years back[3]. I am a regular program committee member for an annual conference on the subject[4]. I have done a lot of work on various distributed systems, and also know the network stack down to the hardware pretty well.

I have built some interesting systems in my time and have touched on pretty much every software topic anyone might care to be interested in. I currently spend most of my coding time with Java backends and HTML+SVG javascript-based front-ends.

Separately, but on a related note I work as an INCOSE-style systems engineer[5] - that is the type of engineer that deals fairly generically with requirements management and systems architecture on somewhat larger projects, particularly projects that involved the transfer of at least tens of millions of dollars for a fixed price contract delivery. Sometimes I make youtube videos with my daughter on introductory engineering topics[6].

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: What do you do for a living?
I'm a contract technician for a mechanical repair and delivery company.

(I work the service desk at a car dealership. Dodgy )

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
