I am a software architect by trade and a coder/hacker by compulsion. I've worked on projects large and small, and have experience in more languages than I care to count (Java, ActionScript, Objective-C, JavaScript, C, C++, HTML, CSS, Velocity, SQL, Php, Bash, Perl, and probably others) and a number of different functional domains (concurrency/multiprogramming, build and test automation, server administration, team and project management, high-level design and architecture, etc.).

Notable open-source contributions include matchbook, a platform-agnostic matchmaking service, API, and SDK for mobile applications (think multi-platform real-time gaming), a thread-safe wrapper for Apple's Core Data framework, and a screen-capture utility for iOS.

I've also self-published a book about self-publishing books, and a comic reader app for the iPhone. I maintain and occasionally update a blog about various topics that I happen to find interesting or noteworthy.

comment How should I mount external hardware to a Greenboard/EPS exterior wall?
Thanks for the detailed reply. I suppose another possible solution would be to fix a couple of posts in the ground, mount the 2x4's between them, and secure the reel onto that?

@DA01 - Sloppy as in "ugly but still functional", or sloppy to the point where the structural integrity has been compromised?

comment Is it normal to find cracks in new concrete?
@UNECS - Negative on the expansion joints. They did use steel riobar, yes. And I'm not positive but I believe they did use chairs to hold the steel in place. What they did was before pouring the actual slab they excavated a network of trenches and filled that with concrete, and then had steel bars protruding vertically out from that at regular intervals (I'll add a picture of this). My assumption is that they used those vertical bars to secure the riobar in place, though I wasn't onsite at the time to see if that's what they actually did.
