My name is Josef Pfleger and I am from Austria. I currently manage a team of software engineers at bwin and live and work in Austria.

My interests

I'm interested in everything related to computers, especially software and its creation. Some of my other hobbies include flying small airplanes, scuba diving, playing the violin, snowboarding, soccer and some other sports.

Logo

I created the most awesome logo based on my initials. Here's a visual explanation:

And here is the SVG and a picture of M&M's. And here is the LINQ to create it in ASCII art:

var r = 42; // radius

Func<double, int> f = h => (int) Math.Round(h, 0);
int s = f(r * .8), i = f(r * .9), o = f(r * 1.1);

var jp = from y in Enumerable.Range(0, r * 2 + 1)
         from x in Enumerable.Range(0, r * 2 + 2)
         let d = f(Math.Sqrt(x * x + y * y - (2 * r * (x + y - r))))
         select x > r * 2 ? '\n' :
            (x < i && (y < r ? d <= r : d <= s))
            || (x > o && y < i && d <= s)
            || (x > o && y > o && d <= r) ? '*' : ' ';

Console.WriteLine(jp.ToArray());
