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 Can I collect post at / near Heathrow airport (on a Saturday)?
Added link on URL. Changed code block to quote block (double spaces at the ends of lines preserve linebreaks). And it's generally considered allowable to tidy up small grammatical errors when quoting, so I did.

comment Is tap water in Ireland and England drinkable?
I've also found that if I'm with a group, no one minds that one person is drinking tap water as long as everyone else is paying for their drinks.

comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
Scotch tape is the really good quality sellotape which doesn't yellow with age and peels off without tearing. A yard is a concrete area: it may be a goods yard, or may be part of a garden. (My parents' house has a yard: the garden is beyond it. Or it may be considered part of the garden, perhaps.)

Added double linespace to end of each line to preserve whitespace without the ugly hack of code formatting.
