Hi there!

My name is Anders Melander.

I was born in 1964 and I live (last time I checked my pulse) in the small town Rode in Denmark with my wife Lone, our two kids Elisabeth, born 1999, and Silke, born 2001, the dog Bozo, a few ducks, 10 chickens, 20-30 fish, 40-50 mice and a partridge in a pear tree. Our house is a large thatched cottage dating from sometime in the 1700s.

If you are looking for information on the Melander family you’re welcome to browse my Genealogy pages.

So what’s up?

I’ve been working as a software developer since the 80s. At present I’m the senior software architect and a partner in a small and very anonymous company.

My weapon of choice is definitely Delphi from CodeGear. I’m fluent in a lot of other languages, but Delphi is the most fun to use.

If you should get the urge to mail me about any of the freeware software projects I’ve published in the past, I must warn you that my Bayesian spam filter has received special secret ninja training in detecting anything that remotely resembles unpaid work. You are always welcome to leave a comment though.

About the site

I’m afraid the site is a bit of a mess at the moment. I’m in the process of transferring content from my old site, which was designed and maintained in notepad, and it’s a lot of work.
