I'm a software engineer with a passion for programming. My professional background includes mobile device and embedded programming (Android, Blackberry, J2ME, Motorola 68k processors), as well a variety of other desktop platforms (Java, MFC C++, Netbeans, etc), with a little experience with web-programming environments thrown in for good measure (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Spring, MySql, etc).

One of my hobby projects is developing PopTrayU (http://poptrayu.sourceforge.net), an open source email notifier written in Delphi. I had been using the original PopTray for about 10 years, and decided to learn enough Delphi to fix a couple pet bugs, since no one else seemed to have the knowledge, time, and inclination to do it themselves, and there hadn't been a new version released in over 7 years. Once I'd fixed that one bug, there was one more little thing I thought I could improve, and wouldn't it be fun if I could make this aspect of the application a little more customizable? And then there's that other bug...well, someday I'll get them all fixed, maybe :)

comment How to scale chicken recipe that requires cooking in a single layer?
so perhaps cooking the liquids in a saucepan to partially reduce them before putting in the oven would help the finished consistency of the sauce if I cook it in the oven?

comment Dishwasher safety, “top shelf”
Great question. After having seen one of our neighbors putting all their top rack dishwasher safe stuff in the bottom of their dishwasher without incident, we figured it would be reasonably safe to experiment with such since we had the same model. Anecdotally, one place where I've lived in the past, I had a tupperware lid deform/melt from falling into the bottom rack. But with our current dishwasher, even the disposible tupperware seems to survive the bottom rack unscathed....so I've been kind of curious why in some dishwashers, it's fine, but not others.
