Interesting facts about me

First computer

My first computer was a PC 8086 circa 1995, but I did my first actual development of some surveying algorithms on a Casio FX880P calculator in 1997 in my first year at college.


I have a coastal skipper license but haven`t commanded any big boats yet. On the other hand, I have sailed in small boats and large schooners as a crew member.
