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 does the United States keep using "old" date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
@terdon. English too pronounces dates as dd-mm-yyyy, at least in my dialect (and most dialects, I think). Today is the twenty-third of October, twenty fourteen.

comment Multiple vs single field capture for phone number form input
Surely a UK phone number is written as one of the following: +44 (0)20 444 4444, +44 20 444 4444, or (020) 444 4444. Your example seems to be a hybrid.
