It seems like all you know how to do is engage in ignorant, uninformed,
Not that it matters, but -- in addition to having had a news story I wrote
published on the front page of the N.Y. Times (midwest edition) -- I've:
a) Designed and implemented trans-national, trans-atlantic corporate
data network for the trading arm of a major Japanese bank.
b) implemented "array of pointer to function" in FORTRAN 77 applications.
c) Written date parsing routines, originally in FORTRAN 66, that would
recognize virtually -any- 'rational' date expression -- including
the likes of "this 23rd day of June in the Year of Our Lord 2012".
had a switch for 'prefering' European-syle (DD MM YY) or American-style
(MM DD YY) dates when ambiguous. User-manual for the free-form command
parser merely specified a 'date' was required at a particular point,
would frequently generate user inquires 'what date _format_ is required?'
Answer: "Use what you prefer, it will probably make sense out of it"
d) Written the _first_ commodity-options 'theoretical value' calculation
routine that was fast enough to be used in 'real time' in determining
'fair value' for exchange-traded commodity options. When the source
data may change in a fractiono of a second, Doing 'Cox-Ross-Rubenstein'
math *before* the underling data changes -- invalidating the calculation-
in-progress -- is challenging. Doing it for the -entire- market, which
requires sub-millisecond timing, is far more than just 'challenging'.
e) Written the worlds fastest project scheduling software (merely 4000
times faster than IBM's offering at the time). After I demoed the
software for over a dozen senior IBM construction executives, they
contracted with the firm I worked for, for project scheuling services
for -all- their major physicaal plant construction projects. U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers also bought a copy.
f) Wrote the _first_ PC-based software for 'off-line' creation of
control-files for a high-end video-tape editing suite. File format
_entirely_ undocumented, required 'reverse-engineering' of everthing.
g) Designed and implemented a complete _real-time_ market price data
distribution system (everything from the incoming feed processing
to the subroutinies that the 'user applications' used) for a major
Government Securities brokerage. Stand-alone code on dedicated
processors for each incoming feed, feeding a back-end server, with
multiplexing daemons on each workstation, to support multiple
simultaneous applications. Commplete with application-level transparency
for the crash/auto-restart of any system-level component, and auto
release of resources previousl allocated to now-zombie clients.
Everthing _guaranteed_, by architecture design to be non-blocking,
_impossible_ for one client app to adversely affect quote delivery
to other apps, even on the same machine.
h) Designed and built a complete 'subscription publiication' accounting
system -- complete 'subscriber management'. billing, payment, earned-
income handling, -and- 'fulfillment' processing.
i) Written 'hyupervisor' (for lack of a better term) code for a mini-
computer system, to automate a management task on that machine that
the _manufacturer_ of the hardare and O/S said could _not_ be automated.

That is an amazingly accurate description of _YOU_, Wociech -- You might
consider why you feel it necessary to _personally_attack_ anyone and
everyone who "has the nerve to disagree with your _opinions_".
