I'm a former professional software engineer based in Texas. I love the C# programming language, and actually program leisurely as well.

My add-ons suite for World of WarCraft was quite popular. They have been downloaded a combined 400k times from the two main download sites (WoWInterface.com and Curse.com).

After 13 years working in IT and software development, I found that the field was no longer fun nor interesting to me. I recently quit my job to follow my childhood dream of becoming a novelist.

comment My passport expires April 2013, can I renew it after my travel to US in December or before travel?
This is a good rule of thumb, actually. The CPB officers pretty much ALWAYS has the final call. I used to be a foreign worker on an H1B visa (now Green Card) and my immigration form always stressed the fact that the document didn't guarantee me entry into the US, and that it was up to the CPB officer to decide whether I should be allowed into the country.

comment Are calls to international numbers charged at international rates if the caller is in the same country?
In my experience people calling me while I was roaming abroad have never had to pay as if they were making international calls when calling me. Maybe it depends on the carrier, but I have never seen it. It wouldn't make sense.
