I once wrote a fractal graphics generator in 6510 Assembler for C64. I 
can read a number of different programming languages. I know enough 
about programming to know I'm not a developer - anything I produced 
would not be a positive contribution to anything! So I'd rather make art 
and music and such.

Thanks to all the developers - known, unknown, on Linux or any other 
platforms - who've successfully turned complex theories into something I 
can use to get a sound or photographic effect I want in order to express 
what I want to say.
