Software Engineer by day, and sometimes by night. I've been programming since the days of the Commodore Vic20 (though I'm not sure if making your name appear continuously down the screen could be called programming). I've been working professionally in the field for 10 years since graduating from Uni in 2000. The languages I use most are C (for embedded work) and C++.

comment How far to go with typedef'ing primitive types like int
I guess one reason to specify type size is when it comes to serializing, the type itself determines how it is represented in a binary stream (2 bytes for int16_t, etc). Mind you, that's more a question on int vs int16_t etc.. than whether to typedef the primitive types themselves. (EDIT: Sorry I mean the appropriate function is called based on the type itself).
