Code - like Projects

What can I say? I'm a geek, thru & thru and I occasionally like to hack around a little. I'm also currently "acting VP of Worldwide IP" for Mobius Photonics <jk>. Seriously...

If that's not enough, there's a whole slew of open source code and helpful coders out there willing to lend a hand.
