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 door knobs still exist?
On external, @cpast, it depends. Quite often there's a knob which doesn't turn on the outside, used only to pull the door closed.

Interesting you say they're more common on internal doors. Here in Ireland, I don't think I've ever seen them on internal doors.

comment Benefit of “Twisty bottom” ballpoint pens over “Clicky tops”
I frequently operate my clicky pens by banging them off the desk, or my forearm, or some other surface. Not, often, my forehead, though. (I used to open hard-boiled eggs on my forehead as a kid. And then my mother switched to duck eggs, which have harder shells. That hurt.)

comment Which symbol to use for switching to the english version of a site?
That's the UK flag, not the English flag (which is a simple red cross on white).
