I have worked in the games industry (graphics, performance, level editors, special effects, physics), on seismic exploration processing (beowulf-like clusters), and in the financial industry (C++, Python, linux process management). I'm particularly interested in performance optimization (temporal and spatial), and fractals.

comment How can I quickly save a tasteless curry?
I've made curries that were too bland and they just needed more salt for the curry flavor to come out.

All your points are good, especially Mise en place. I suspect that is probably the true answer.

Interesting! I had never even considered that. Some recipes, including the one linked to, however, say "grease pan; set aside", which sounds to me like I set it aside on the counter, not in the preheated oven. Should I be setting it into the oven?
