Spare-time C# coder from The Netherlands. Tim has made great contributions to the World Wind Core (see http://ohloh.net/projects/3931/contributors/2498 ) and also made many useful plug-ins.

Tim is a great code monkey, we first met when World Wind was fairly new, he was one of the main coders and bug fixers at the time, and was a friendly face who helped out anyone, as long as they coded 'correctly' that is.

We became pretty good friends fairly quickly, he attempted to teach me to code in .Net, but even though was patient and a good teacher I could never truly 'get it', so we moved on to more fun things instead. He taught me how to use Maxwell render, and showed his artistic side with some of his creations.

ShockFire made the basic image, which I then added the marbles to and rendered with Maxwell Studio.

Over the years I have enjoyed testing many of his programs, some just for fun and others with real applications. The quality of a ShockFire product is always outstanding, but being a perfectionist he was never satisfied with any of them, with all the testing I have done Tim has given me the title of 'Piggy', which of course I don't mind.

After 'officially' leaving the World Wind community (yeah right, he could never really leave us) we kept in touch by IM, and have had many conversations about important topics such as firefly and why nbc always cancel our favourite TV shows. Conversations with Tim are always fun, but we do talk about serious issues too, such as his concern for his Mother when she had surgery, and he has always listened when I am going through a tough time.
