I am a British software engineer who lives in the Netherlands. I have worked on radio testing of Bluetooth and other wireless communication standards, and currently work in the navigation software industry. I enjoy developing primarily using modern C++, although other languages and dialects occasionally creep in.

I maintain a small terminal server application called Paradice 9, which is used for distributed tabletop roleplaying support.

comment Is it possible to cook a whole fish in a dishwasher?
Depending on the size of your dishwasher, it could be an efficient way to cook a lot of fish. Say, if you're preparing for a party or something.
comment Is it recommended to rinse the teapot with boiling water before putting the tea leaves in?
Surely a thicker teapot is more likely to crack because one side will be hotter (and thus larger) than the other for longer...
comment How do I keep fruit from sinking to the bottom of my cake?
@Sobachatina I used the recipe at azeliaskitchen.net/blog/… but modified it so that I rubbed the butter into the flour instead, and also first separated the egg whites and used an electric whisk to beat them until fluffy. Also, the flavour of yoghurt matched the fruit.
