I bought my first computer, a TI 99/4A at the age of 14. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to write software.

Many computers, operating systems, and programming languages later, I still enjoy writing software. In those days, the code might have been to play a tune, a lunar lander clone or even a little hardware integration to turn on and off lights. Today, I design and write software for enterprise customers. But, there is still a little time for those small utility applications that help out around the house.

comment Should double click be avoided in web applications?
I agree with the first paragraph, but not as much with the rest. As enterprises are moving complex business applications to the web many desktop features are coming along with them. With the paradigms merging, the existence of browser chrome can't always be used to define behaviors.

I like that one and yes, its page placement doesn't seem right at all.

I like this approach. My data is linear, but fitting descriptors into the data points would benefit from this approach.
