A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I’ve learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I’m a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment Why do we say 'year 1993' as "nineteen ninety three" instead of "one thousand nine hundred ninety three"?
@Josh61. That guide produces "one thousand and fifty-four", with "ten fifty-four" as an acceptable alternative. I disagree. I've heard only the latter form. The Normans invaded Britain in "ten sixty-six".
