I'm a software engineer with a passion for programming. My professional background includes mobile device and embedded programming (Android, Blackberry, J2ME, Motorola 68k processors), as well a variety of other desktop platforms (Java, MFC C++, Netbeans, etc), with a little experience with web-programming environments thrown in for good measure (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Spring, MySql, etc).

One of my hobby projects is developing PopTrayU (http://poptrayu.sourceforge.net), an open source email notifier written in Delphi. I had been using the original PopTray for about 10 years, and decided to learn enough Delphi to fix a couple pet bugs, since no one else seemed to have the knowledge, time, and inclination to do it themselves, and there hadn't been a new version released in over 7 years. Once I'd fixed that one bug, there was one more little thing I thought I could improve, and wouldn't it be fun if I could make this aspect of the application a little more customizable? And then there's that other bug...well, someday I'll get them all fixed, maybe :)

comment Our infant was sleeping through the night, but at 5 months old started waking up in the middle of the night; is this from starting to dream?
There could be other causes for such wakings such as teething pain to consider as well.

comment How to get toddler to eat eggs?
It isn't possible that he has an allergy or sensitivity to eggs, could he? If he did, it probably wouldn't matter how you prepared them, the "how they feel" in his mouth would still be itchy or causing soreness or something. But odds may be more likely that he just doesn't like the texture

comment What do you do when a relative heaps presents on her children at Christmas and Your kid's pile always looks paltry in comparison?
Yes, obviously, which ones work depend on the distance traveled, whose house you're at, etc. It would be difficult to ask her not to bring all the gifts to her own home. But maybe in consideration that everyone other than her is traveling with their gifts, and it's less practical to bring ginormous or plentiful gifts in the car, perhaps she could consider having her kids open a few of their gifts early so they can "share them with the cousins" before present opening and/or to shrink their piles a little bit. If you had something too big you'd probably open it at home too.
