I'm a software engineer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Mostly writing software in C# and a little Java.


I'm interested in a variety of topics from best practice and coding standards and UI to nitty gritty programming details.

comment Converting US Dollars to Euros in the UK without getting screwed with two transaction fees?
That is what I'm probably going to do. Although it's not optimal. Airport money changers have the worst rates.

The likelihood of this happening in the short term is not high.

I would but as far as I can tell I'm in the middle of nowhere on a customer site and I arrive quite late to the airport.

comment Are non-Saudi women allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia?
As a side note my mother actually has a Saudi Driver's license from the 70's women were required to have one to drive in Aramco back then.

comment Traveling with two passports - which one to use?
Not really the immigration officers are only checking that you are allowed to leave the country. They don't even ask where you are going so they can't really ask you if you have permission to go there. It's the immigration officer at the other end's responsibility to determine if you are allowed to enter their country.

comment Which place in Middle East are these photos taken from?
Good luck visiting Riyadh, unless you are a Saudi, from a Gulf state or get a job there you are unlikely to get a visa.

comment How can I get a prepay SIM card before going to Greece?
We are arriving at 3AM and my girlfriend is going to be attending a conference the next day while I wander about Athens. Want to have SIM cards so we can get on touch when she's done.

comment Alternative to trains in Japan
I'll see if I can find the ticket. I was there for work so I think think I had to submit the receipt for expenses. I don't speak much Japanese so I'm not sure where to start. TBH: I'd get a Japan Rail Pass if I ever go to Japan again, the value is amazing.
