Saved from the web by a job in industry. Coding GUI for computer-aided railway realignment machinery.

At last a job where I have time to do stuff properly and don't have to worry about loads of unfixed bugs coming back to haunt me.

comment What is the best way to open a tightly fitted lid of a jar?

comment What are the herbs that “dry” the best?
Grinding rosemary isn't that big a deal, I just pour some into the palm of one hand and then rub it with the other palm.

comment How do I cook for just one person? any good cookbooks?
Yup, stick me in the kitchen with a cookbook trying to write a shopping list, I'm hopeless. But in the shop checking out whatever takes my fancy, really gets the creative juices going!
