J.P. Hamilton is a software engineer who lives and works in Houston,
Texas, perhaps the largest underrated city in the known universe.
At the age of eight, a serious addiction to Space Invaders and a
lack of funds led him to his first PC, a 6502-based beast built by
Ohio Scientific. He's been programming ever since. He has been
dabbling in the black art of COM programming for several years and
uses both languages: C++ and Visual Basic.
From time to time he leaves the realm of programming to pursue his
other interests: skydiving, running marathons, yoga, and drinking
coffee. His machine at home also doubles as a digital audio
workstation where he composes electronic music of all kinds. He
believes one should experience as much as possible in this life,
and is currently scheming for a way to climb Mt. Everest.
