- C programming language (12 years, 7 professionally)
- AWK - am currently writing my own implementation
- assembly - light knowledge of PowerPC, IA-32, Z80, Alpha AXP, SPARC (in best to worst knowledge order).
- UNIX - I run and maintain a few FreeBSD systems.
- memory management - I used to write garbage collectors for a living.
- RFC 822 - wrote parser as part of (now shelved) project to write an MUA.
- unix shell
- rock climbing (lead on sight in UK at grade VS-HVS)
- mathematics - I have a degree in it, but it's all mostly forgotten.
- programming language - both implementation and design, and smattering of knowledge of a large number of languages. Ones not mentioned already (random order): Forth, Icon, Lisp including Emacs Lisp, Logo, ML, Perl, Lua, PostScript, Scheme.
- video games. I play them as well as write them. My top five games are probably: NetHack, Super Bomberman, Super Mario 64, GoldenEye 007, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Tetris and Dr. Mario deserve an honourable mention too.
I'll add more as I think of them.

Ah, cool! Another book binder. I've been meaning to put up a page about that some day. --Pinkunicorn
Re LALR_parser ... yeah I'd grabbed the 1st edition Dragon Book. A later copy is around here somewhere, but you would not want to see my pile-o-books library scheme. Terminology evolves, c'est la vie. --User:Hornlo
Well I guess, but I'd still like to know what people are likely to mean by "LALR parser".
