Subject Where to start?
Date Thu, 11 Feb 2016 16:18:14 GMT
I expect to complete my "Building on Windows" project in the next day or 
so, by documenting the results in 

That means it is time to pick another project. Any suggestions?

Here is a brief resume:


B.Sc. Mathematics, Imperial College London, 1970
M.Sc. Computer Science, Birkbeck College London University, 1975
Ph.D. Computer Science, UC San Diego, 2009


I worked from 1970 to 2002 for NCR, Celerity, FPS, Cray Research, and 
Sun Microsystems. I worked on application software, operating systems, 
compilers, system performance, and server platform architecture. I was 
performance architect for the Sun E10000 and 15K.

Unfortunately, my professional end-user applications development 
experience was writing programs that expected punch card or paper tape 
input. More recently, I have written computer performance models in C++ 
and Java, and did simulations in Java for my dissertation research.

Although my C++ experience is rusty and predates widespread availability 
of the STL, I should be able to get it up to date relatively easily. I 
have used templates and operator overloading.
