Software developer. I work primarily in C#, Silverlight, SQL, and ASP[.NET] at work and home, but am trying to find a new practical language to learn that isn't quite so C-based. Right now I'm refreshing my abilities in functional programming with some F#. Also somewhat experienced with C++, PHP, Java, LaTeX, HTML/CSS, WPF, and a touch of Scheme.

comment Representing timezone list
+1. I can barely remember the name of my timezone; all I know is that it's +5. Being able to quickly scan a list to find "+5" is much easier than pretty much any other method I can think of.

comment Is it bad to have an “Obsessive Refactoring Disorder”?
@Slawek - Yes, I know, it's terrible practice, but practically speaking if making a deadline is more important than having clean code you have to prioritize. File a report on it and make sure it gets fixed as soon as possible.

As usual, Joel Spolsky has an excellent article on rewriting old software.

comment When is an application too customizable?
Exactly. Is it worth it to spend 25% of your development time on a feature maybe 5% of your customers will use? Probably not. Is having this extra customizability going to net you any more customers? Again, probably not.
