Apologies to Barry Manilow, and please be assured that my code is far, far, better than my doggerel.
My full name is George Donald Purdy, Jr.; those who know me usually call me "Don." You can call me anything but late for lunch.
As you have probably already figured out, computer programming is a large part of what I do, having coded in seven different assemblers plus ForTran, BASIC, FoCal/MUMPS, Pascal, Autologic ICL (headers, for those who know), PL/M (PL/1 for micros), C, DCL, JCL, SQL, VB, Java, UNIX Shell-scripts, and HTML (this home-page). Put it this way, if I can get half-way decent reference manuals, or even lacking them, I will take on the programming of a corroded hunk of lead.
Of course, I range far beyond coding, and not simply into program and system design, but even further afield. You might, as a sample, want to take a look at "Video DialTone, My Second Look."
You may also have concluded that I tend to tell bad jokes. Wrong! I inflict them!
