This editor is a Veteran Editor and is entitled to display this Iron Editor Star.

I have three kids, two ex-wives, 17 patents (numbers 1 and 16 on the list aren't mine) and a PhD in "Mathematical Science" that I never use. I'm a programmer, currently working at the Army Research Lab. In my spare time I like to read, travel, go to movies (only the big screen really does it for me), make music, or goof on the internet. I also contribute to WikiQuote.
