My name is Michael Burton. I'm a retired professional programmer, and I have been writing computer programs since 1968 (you do the math).
I live in the Idaho Panhandle, just north of Coeur d'Alene. I've been here for over 30 years. I love the area, even during winter.
Software was both my vocation and my avocation. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, attending classic car shows, doing lapidary and silversmithing and touring the Pacific Northwest.
My current passions are lapidary and showing my classic car. I have blogged about both of those frequently, so I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
