That would be me. The handsome fellow you see in the picture below.
And this about sums up where I'm at:
Name: Michael Alan Muller Height: 5'11" Weight: [we'll not discuss that] Hair color: brown Eye color: blue Sexual preference: hetero Marital status: married with kids Religion: Zen practitioner since June 1999 Political Party: Libertarian Profession: computer programmer OS: Linux
At this time, my favorite programming language is Crack, the language I created. I find I can do whatever I want in it faster and easier than anything else.
Other previous favorites include Python, C++, and Perl. I still like Python, and still do work in C++. Perl has mostly been relegated to one-liners.
For elegant compiled languages, nothing beats C.
I will always have a warm place in my heart for LISP. God codes in Lisp
(explaining why the universe has taken billions of years to run).
I use Linux exclusively at home. Why would anybody want to use an operating system that doesn't come with its source code?
I used OS/2 at work during most of the 90's, worked in various UNIXes later
(mostly Solaris and AIX). In recent years I've been working entirely in Linux.
I have thus far managed to avoid doing anything but minimal development on any
Microsoft OS's, and hopefully will continue to avoid them.
I had really long hair well into my 20s, but around January 96 I began
shaving my hair down to an eigth of an inch twice a year, thereby minimizing
hair-maintenence. I started growing it again when my second child was born
and now look like a hippy again, especially since I've grown my beard out.
Computer programming, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, singing, playing guitar and keyboards, and writing songs. And, of course, Quake.
