3D Printing

My recent acquisition of a 3D printer will be another realm of topics for my pages and blog posts.  Check back often to see what I am designing.


My interests in programming have led me to explore a number of different languages.  I started out with BASIC, done work with Visual Basic and C#, dabbled a bit in PERL and most recently I have done extensive work with PHP
