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 :)

I'm still around, just lurking most of the time though :)

comment Are the 'ten virgins' told in Jesus' parable multiple brides or just general wedding party?
I would disagree with your conclusion about how a different word would be used for bridesmaid vs. virgins. Virgins in this context would refer to any unmarried woman of "marrying age" indicating that the others were peers of the bride, perhaps friends, as opposed to family.
comment What is the translation philosophy for tachash skins in Exodus?
Approach for this specific word, I'll edit the subject to make that more clear
