Whilst the number of packages and applications I've used over the last decade or more are simply too numerous to list, I think it fair to say that I am familiar (usually at an advanced level) with most major commercial applications, including Microsoft's Word, Excel, PowerPoint, FrontPage, Project, and Visio, Macromedia's Dreamweaver and Flash, Adobe's Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, and LiveMotion, and many more.

I am very comfortable with various Windows OS's (for which I have, at times, been required to offer technical support and troubleshooting services), and a fairly competent Mac user. However, I have probably forgotten what little UNIX knowledge I once possessed (although it must be lodged somewhere within the deep recesses of my memory).

Additionally, I am acquainted with the basic architecture and front-office applications of a number of trading/market data distrubution systems, and with most major charting/technical analysis packages.
