I've been a computer programmer for as long as I can remember. I can programme in almost any language, but I am currently learning LISP.

I enjoy 70s and 80s rock (especially Meat Loaf, Queen, AC/DC) and my favourite colour is yellow.

comment Two cultures — “bicultural”, one culture —?
I understand what you're saying -- and it's a bit pedantic, but 'mono-' should go with words of Greek origin, like I said. Also, I don't think the questioner is asking about a society that is dominated by a single culture, but an individual who only "has" a single culture.

comment Is “He told me not to argue but just agree.” grammatically correct?
@Kris: I accept that it's more common. In my defence, I only said 'One might instead say'. I certainly would say 'He told me not to argue, just to agree', but you are right, it would be more common for someone to say 'He told me not to argue, just agree'.

comment Is the idiom 'burn the midnight oil' not used as much lately?
@davient Were those references there before? If they were, I apologise. It just annoys me when people provide what seems just to be their unsubstantiated opinion.

comment Is the idiom 'burn the midnight oil' not used as much lately?
I haven't downvoted your answer, because it is still very good, but I would like to see some references. If you're just giving your opinion, then put it as a comment. If you're providing an answer, then give as definitive an answer as possible. If we're just going on anecdotal evidence, I use the phrase "burn the midnight oil" somewhat frequently. Maybe it's a regional thing?
