Well, since Craig asked: I can - with various levels of proficiency - code in Fortran, Algol, Ada, Pascal, C, C++, Modula2, Python, Perl, Lisp, Verilog,RTL, SystemC, JavaScript and a lot more that I have forgotten. I am an expert in HTML, XML, CSS, HyTime, SGML, XSLT and PostScript. I am fluent in English (my first native language), French, Dutch and German, and can manage with Spanish, Italian and Russian. In addition to a postgraduate qualification in technical writing, I have a higher diploma in electronics
(avionics) and a good understanding of EDA. Oh, and I spent 2 years as a software quality assurance engineer so I know things like the CMM and Agile intimately. I can edit sound, video and image files, including authoring subtitles. I am also good at graphics design and am a usability expert. I guess that's why I am the documentation manager in the software R&D department....

Simon.
