I have been programming in VB/VB .NET and Windows for a very long time.

I have been programming, in general, for a very very long time.

Started in C/C++ under DOS (when I was 10, in 1986!). I even wrote a FOSSIL driver in assembly (for those of you who remember what a FOSSIL is, you're a fossil, I'm a fossil)... so I got a book that taught me serial port interrupt driven communications routines in C and ASM. Then I moved on to Pascal. Pascal disappeared and became unavailable to my youth and poorness (when it became Delphi).

Moved on to VB 6, from VB 6 I discovered the Windows API and, in fact, I am developing an ever more exhaustive port of the Windows API into VB .NET.

(I recently just reinstalled my VB 6 compiler on my Windows 8.1 system. Windows 8.1 made several protests and at least one dialog box suggested I needed therapy, I think ... but it still ran, and compiled! I use it mainly to reference my ancient projects to slowly port them into .NET ... yes, still. )

Now, here I am, years later, still learning, still working with VB (and to a lesser extent C# and to an even lesser extent C++).

I've been concentrating on getting good practice with WPF and WCF and all of the other neat Microsoft technologies of the current era.
