I started developing software on a small Casio basic calculator in 1987. I graduated to C, then C++ and finally Java. Although I work daily with Java I have a wide base of experience in a lot of other languages and technologies as well. Reading my blog will give you a good idea of some of the more recent trails I've explored.

I have created a few Stack Exchange related projects:

You can find some of my work other places as well:

comment Swatch: A Firefox plugin for monitoring Stack Exchange sites for interesting changes
I haven't had time to do much to it lately but I'll eventually get back around to it. I have lost some interest in the API due to what seems to be very little user interest in the tools created with it. I use the plugin though so I know I want to fix some of the missing parts soon so I can track a couple new sites.

@Magnus Sorry about that. Nobody seemed to want to use it so I didn't update it. I'm going to shut the hosted version down. The code is on github if you want to run it yourself.
