** Apologies but my daughter was born in October 2004, and so coding now comes second. My reponses tend to take a lot longer**

I've been coding since I got my first ZX Spectrum. From Basic to assembly, through C,C++ and arriving at C#. On the way I've throughly enjoyed Perl, Lisp and XML.

I find I can make the intellectual leap to understand the problem, I love big picture designs, patterns and reuse. I may be addicted to abstract classes Smile | :) GOF has a lot to answer for. I miss delete() even though I spent too much time finding the leaks.

My favourite part of coding is in UI design because of the complexity, the event driven nature, and the fact its (virtually) tactile. I hate GUI's that don't follow system guidelines, don't resize, and don't display properly when you change system colour and font.
