Twitter Link I'm a Delphi developer, going back to Turbo Pascal 5.5, TPW and BP/O7. I do a reasonable amount of SQL Server (mostly schema design, sprocs and T-SQL utilities) and maintain some legacy apps that use Firebird and Interbase.
 
I've been picking up C# (both .Net and Mono), and more recently WPF, and have some basic utilities written using Mono that run on Windows, Mac and Ubuntu.
 
I develop bespoke software - I run my own small company, mostly writing point-of-sale systems for the financial services and high-street finance type markets.
 
In my downtime I explore my Mac (I switched a few years ago, now I do all my work in VMs on the Mac), and I have a 1-year-old daughter who is the other 'apple of my eye'.

comment iPhone app to apply Instagram like filters to a photo and save to camera roll
Another vote for Camera+ - the way you can take lots of pictures in quick succession and then later upload them all to the 'camera roll' makes it much more usable than the built-in camera app.
