It is with great sadness that we announce that Seumas McNally, President and Lead Programmer of Longbow Digital Arts, died on March 21st, 2000, at 2 PM EST, following a three-year battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Seumas had just turned 21 on February 10th.

Please check out the Main Tribute Site for additional information and links.

We will maintain this page as Seumas left it.

Hi! Welcome to my programming page. Here is where I'll be sharing bits of acquired wisdom for your reading pleasure. I'm just getting started, so things might be a little thin for now, but I'll be adding stuff as time goes on. Let me know what you'd like to see more of!

(In case you're wondering, my name is pronounced Shem-Ess. It's supposedly an ancient (VERY ancient...) spelling of Seamus, which incidentally means James in Gaelic.)

New! If you want to talk about programming, be sure to check out our Programming Discussion Forum, which I'll be frequenting regularly.
