I'm a software developer at a freight logistics firm. I graduated with B.S. Computer Science from Arkansas Tech University. I grew up in western Honshu, Japan.

I taught myself HTML/CSS when I was in middle school. I was fascinated by the design aspect (graphics/typography/layout) of creating websites. In high school I taught myself some C++ and Javascript. In college I studied programming, doing a fair amount of coding in C++ with a little of bit of Java and assembly as well (and became enamored of vi).

Now days I code for a living, developing client-server apps in C# (and previously VB.Net), writing units tests with NUnit & RhinoMocks, and interacting with DB2 and the occasional mainframe COBOL program, with WinForms on the front end. I do some Python and PowerShell scripting on the side to make my life easier.

I am passionate about the field of public transit and transportation networks in general. I hope to develop my craft and apply it to solving interesting problems in those areas.

comment Can you explain this Free Will / Predestination illustration?
Is this what the doctrine of concurrency is about? (Couldn't find many sources about it)? The idea that A therefore B or B therefore A (where A/B are free will and sovereignty) is wrong? That A and B are not two things where one results in the other, but instead concurrent?

comment According to reformed theology: Is loving God a choice? If not, do the elect differ from robots?
Is a call to all necessary so that those who don't answer the call are without excuse? If there was no call, then are they guilty of not responding to it?

comment Christianity and Fatalism
"...we should live as if we already were saved" but get sent to hell anyway? I struggle much with this doctrine.

comment Praying for someone's salvation. Is there a point?
I've added the Arminianism tag since the question text is relying on the free-will of man to ask about the purpose of praying for someone's salvation.

revised Praying for someone's salvation. Is there a point?
Added arminianism tag to clarify perspective. Remove purpose tag since "meh..."

comment How can Jesus, born of mankind, be sinless?
I can see that you took this from this blog post, which is looks like you wrote... you should give this page of formatting tips a read, as your answer is very hard to read in its current format.

comment Is the LDS's view of Trinity/Godhead considered monotheistic or polytheistic?
Pardon my lack of understanding, but does the teaching of divinization (might be using the wrong word... I reference "as God is, man may become") lead to a polytheistic universe (or the sum total of universes), therefore a polytheistic religion as suggested by the definition "multiple gods, each with their own domain and their own agenda"?
