He is also well known as the original author of Netwide Assembler (NASM),[3] and for his essay, "How to Report Bugs Effectively",[4] which many software developers[5][6] direct users to read before reporting bugs to them.

He also maintains a popular collection of small computer programs[7] which implement one-player puzzle games. All of them run natively on Nintendo DS, Symbian S60, Unix (GTK+; Android, Mac OS X), and Windows.

He attended Cambridge University, and currently works at ARM Limited.
