Doug Boude (rhymes with 'loud') is the Senior Developer for Mason Catastrophe Claims Services based in the quaint hamlet of Boerne, Texas. He has been in the IT industry since 1992, hung ten on the first internet wave when it came his way in 1996, and has been crafting web based solutions with Coldfusion since version 4.0. His super powers include OOP with ColdFusion, most any flavor of SQL, Javascript/Ajax, PHP, and VB. He blogs at Some fun facts about Doug: He was born in the sign of water on a frigid Sunday morning in 1966; He was organically grown in the wooded farmlands of north central Missouri; At the age of 19 he got married, had a baby, joined the Air Force, moved to the Great State of Texas (best state in the Union), and disarmed bombs for the military and Secret Service for the next 5 years; He has reproduced 8 times (so far), inherited 4 step kids, and has two grandchildren; Is and always has been an autodidact; Harbors a very strong appreciation for the processes of anaerobic respiration and distillation; Is greatly intrigued by human language and makes it a point to learn at least a pinch of as many as possible; Is an avid outdoorsman who harbors a true appreciation for nature and paleolithic weaponry; Tends to be much more of an "arthropod man" than a cat or dog man (which is why he LOVED "District 9"!!); And he adores solving problems of all kinds! Favorite quote of all time: "When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty........ but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.” — Richard Buckminster Fuller
