About Doug

Mar 26, 2023

I’m a computer nerd.

When I was a kid, I had one of these:

Osborne 1 Computer

I learned to code on it and wrote clones of Tron Light Cycles, Centepede, and Spy Hunter (among others).

When I went to college I studied Mechanical Engineering because it seemed like a good idea at the time. I even got a masters degree in Industrial Engineering (and Engineering Management). But for my entire career I have been working with computers and mostly programming or otherwise being involved in the building of software.

I think I’m pretty good at that now.

Sometimes I write about it here.

I also run sometimes (mostly for no reason in particular, but sometimes to compare the time it takes me to travel a given distance to the time it takes others to run that same distance as well as the time it took me to run that distance in previous attempts).

Sometimes I write about running here too.
