I'm part guitarist, part coder, part writer. I've a tendency towards DIY and an interest in gaming and game development.

English is not my first language, but as good as.

I like communities and community driven projects... that's collective DIY, and I have and interest in that, too.

comment Using the real world in writing
Also, it is good to have common, day to day stuff mentioned in books. Imagine in a hundred, three hundred years. People could have an edition of the book with annotations, explaining that "Xerox" was a brand for a popular photocopying machine. And maybe even explaining what a "photocopy" is. People could be running to the Encyclopedia (or whatever source of information) to get a better picture of our time!

comment Referencing a website using Harvard style
Many a school requires such referencing. This was answered in the same resource I pointed to in a previous thread. I don't know (yet) how to point this to the other question...

comment Checklist for making sure your writing is Atomic?
Your checklist has two items so far, and one to verify the good functioning of the two before it. It'd be good to get the last item out of the list, I think it doesn't belong (in the list, I mean. It does belong in the answer).

revised I'm an editor who generally uses Word to communicate changes with my authors. Is Adobe's InCopy better for this task?

comment Meretricious - A bit too fancy?
Now that's not funny. It's not writhing with both 'I's pronounced as in 'is', but as in 'I'? My life changed just now, I'll need to look up many, many more in the wake of this revelation...
