I am a software programmer using C#, C+, and (less often) PHP. I frequently work with SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML.

I own a business for technical consulting, programming, general IT work, and designing custom electronics (usually for costumes and theater/movie prop use).

I enjoy computers, music composition, photography, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, birding, and occasional cooking. (Many of which are topics of SE sites!)

A note on capitalization, spelling, and grammar: I care about the quality and readability of the questions and answers on StackExchange sites. I frequently edit for these reasons. I understand that not everyone knows English as their first language. If I leave a comment for you asking you to observe some language-usage convention, it's meant as a helpful hint, not as an attack.

comment Should I cover my air conditioner for winter?
After talking to a friend in the HVAC business, I found out that sometimes people forget the covers, turn the units on in spring, and wind up with a service call when the unit overheads.

This makes me wonder if there isn't a rule to screw them all...

One of my favorite hobbies is finding ways to defeat said security screws/bolts. Sometimes a slightly modified tool will do the job; other times brute force is necessary. Always a fun pastime.
