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 Why do some bank websites use passwords that are not case sensitive?
Login: noun. Log in: phrasal verb. And we really don't need text-message abbreviations here, so I got rid of the awful w/.

comment Iptables rules with ! character
Connexion is a perfectly valid, if slightly old fashioned, alternate spelling of connection, @NathanC. Stack Exchange is not a sausage factory: people are permitted to express things in their preferred phrasing where that does not impede communication.

I thought that only MathOverflow lacked a space, and yet I see you've also written ServerFault without one.

comment What is the difference between InnoDB and MyISAM?
@ripper234. Two better versions of this post (far more background; more demonstration of prior research) exist on SO: stackoverflow.com/q/12614541/209139 and stackoverflow.com/q/20148/209139.

comment Observations from a new user! (Closing questions and welcoming new members to the community)
@fredsbend. It's actually 20 rep across the whole network except SO and Meta SE, both of which have their own separate chat sites, for complicated historical reasons.

comment Let's close the "Biblical basis for humans becoming angels" question
I myself edit things when I happen to feel like it, based on how much of an improvement I think I can make, how much time I have available, and how much the current state of the post annoys me. The age of the post is not something I consider, though I'm aware that other people do. People who don't have enough rep to edit directly should remember that they're using up reviewers' time, so they should fix big problems (and perhaps focus on recent posts).

comment Let's close the "Biblical basis for humans becoming angels" question
"The basis is not Biblical" (or "X denomination's basis is not Biblical") is not quite the same as "no Biblical basis exists".
