If it consumes electricity, chances are good that I worked with it or at least know about it. SysAdmin and Programmer, worked with Basic and PHP as well as with Delphi. My current bread and butter is C# and JavaScript. I like to do Commodore 64 development as a hobby and dabbled in XNA for prototyping purposes.

I'm also on Twitter and I have a blog.

comment When should one *not* present events in chronological order?
@Axonn Well, "rejected" would have been the proper word, but I guess the idea is clear :P

comment How much planning should go on before beginning writing?
@slashmais Yes, but it's a very technical approach. There are people that can just start writing without knowing where they are going and are just surprised themselves when they see where the story ends.

@John I thought this is a site for Writers :D Can't help it, once I start the first sentence the next 5 paragraphs just flow naturally.

If that works for you, do that. But don't be afraid to later change the numbers to make them "feel" better or because you want to give the year or whatever. Unless the reader knows the absolute year, it's just a number that can be changed.

comment How do you track random thoughts and ideas?
+1 As well. I'm a tech geek that owns 3 PDAs and 2 Phones, an iPad and 3 Laptops, yet I always carry a paper notebook and a small pen with me because you just can't beat the bootup time and fidelity you gain from it. Moleskine is great because of the hard back and the rubber string that keeps it closed

comment Organizing your Universe?
This actually looks fantastic: Mac and Windows and it keeps everything in simple RTFD files, so writing a Version Control/Publishing system for it is simple enough.

comment Is there a standardized size for Books?
Just btw, I've asked a question about the number of pages now because I think it's a good question or Writers.SE and you had a good answer: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/352

comment Is there a rule of thumb about the number of pages a work of fiction should have?
Just for the record: I'm asking this because an earlier question about size was misu0derstood and I think that a question (#349) about the number of pages makes sense.
