I am a software architect by trade and a coder/hacker by compulsion. I've worked on projects large and small, and have experience in more languages than I care to count (Java, ActionScript, Objective-C, JavaScript, C, C++, HTML, CSS, Velocity, SQL, Php, Bash, Perl, and probably others) and a number of different functional domains (concurrency/multiprogramming, build and test automation, server administration, team and project management, high-level design and architecture, etc.).

Notable open-source contributions include matchbook, a platform-agnostic matchmaking service, API, and SDK for mobile applications (think multi-platform real-time gaming), a thread-safe wrapper for Apple's Core Data framework, and a screen-capture utility for iOS.

I've also self-published a book about self-publishing books, and a comic reader app for the iPhone. I maintain and occasionally update a blog about various topics that I happen to find interesting or noteworthy.

comment Can I save Faridah Malik?
And if you don't have a sniper rifle, immediately break left with a good close-range weapon (like a shotgun with the 2x shot upgrade). Ignore the snipers to begin with, and focus on the support troops. Pick off the heavies from behind as they start to advance on the chopper. When the robot drops, finish off the snipers and engage it from above.

comment Killed a dragon with Whirlwind Sprint?
Yes, killed it from full health. And I did not get a soul from it. I was a bit confused about that as well. There were no NPC's or other critters around.

comment Killed a dragon with Whirlwind Sprint?
I did have a follower (the dark-elf mage from the college), but they're definitely not strong enough to kill a dragon that quickly (or at all) without help. The dragon was not set on fire. The weapon I had at the time was a daedric greatsword, but I never hit the dragon with it.
