    An Artist Living As a Software Engineer? Maybe.

    I've always had artistic desires, however, I lost the taste for the 'starving artist' image long before I really made a career choice.  ( Come to think of it, I'm not sure I ever made a career choice. ) Hmm. I digress.  My story is that I went into software...

    Logic Is A Friend Best Associated With Alone
