I'm a computer programmer and I like quiche.
I'm a pianist and I occasionally tolerate fast food.
I've been working with Oracle (SQL, PL/SQL, Forms, Designer) since 2000 (version 7.3.4, Forms 4.5), since then with versions 8.1.6, 9i and 10g, and Developer 6i, 9i and 10g.
My favourite edible substance is Iced Coffee.
