I am a retired ( 60+) software engineer .

I started my career in 1961 writing programs for one of the first computers in the world in assembler language on 5-channels punched tape. I retired in 2004 while I was working on the Blu-Ray project.
To give you an idea of the progress in the computer world : If you want to make a copy of the content of a Blu-Ray disc on a punched tape, the length of the tape must be at least 60000 kilometers.

I also have a site at Flickr : akoene100

My hobbies: Travel,photography, puzzles..like cryptograms and sudokus. I made a combination of my photos and a sudoku:

Since August 12, 2009:
