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.

revised How do you determine that your hardware is 64 bit capable when there is no operating system installed?
Original had two sentences separated only by a linebreak, which was not preserved in the rendered post. I put a full stop in there. I also moved the links inline, and did a bit of grammatical tweaking.

comment Why doesn't TeX.sx use TeX fonts?
If you think that fish ’n’ chips is the only place where you want a word to begin with an apostrophe, you’re sorely mistaken. There are many examples: ’tis no great task to find ’em.

Interesting piece of metanalysis there, @Dilaton. You were accused of new speak, not news peak.

As another small issue, @Veech, mail headers should be separated with \r\n, not just \n.

@Shmuel. Calling Martin Luther a "famous priest" is a very impressive bit of understatement.

comment Is it okay to enjoy Christmas lights?
@avi. I've certainly heard of some Christians avoiding Christmas (I was brought up in such a tradition; see also Oliver Cromwell, who banned the celebration in England during his time as Protector), but I've never heard of Catholics doing so. They're generally fairly relaxed about "pagan practices". (I'm Irish, and shall therefore mention that Cromwell was a genocidal bastard, though this is not particularly germane to his views on Christmas.)

revised Christmas and Ex-mas
