Time to start using my account diary I suppose. My current interests: assembly, linux (the kernel), taking the java 2 cert., c/c++. Up to this point (first machine: a 1985 Franklin 8086 PC running DOS and running Kermit for BBS access and chatting directly with my friend's macintosh) I ve been strictly a programming hobbist but I ve recently wanted to make it a profession. Hmmm, my biggest regret was not majoring in CS since it gives one carte blache nowadays (back then, though...) Wow, what a depressing start! Time to pick a project and comb through the sources.
