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 Future Perfect in the Past
Agreed. “Should have been” indicates that it was (and is) not (“I should have been at your dinner, but I was sick”). There really can be no case for “should have been finished [in the future]”.

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'.
