System Architect / Senior Software Developer in Calgary, Alberta. Consulting on various projects, mostly with a .Net or classic ASP background. I've been developing Web applications and Websites for over a decade now ranging from using a propietary markup and ISAPI extensions(C/C++) to Classic ASP(VBScript) to ASP.Net(C# 1.0/1.1/2.0/3.5/4.0/MVC) I enjoy solving puzzles such as Sudoku and mysteries. My previous work involves using various Agile practices,e.g. Scrum and pair-programming, on a CMS project within an IS department's web development group.

I enjoy sharing what I've experienced, learned or think may be worth sharing with the world.

comment Why are financial terms not self-descriptive or well-chosen?
Usually there are various stories behind how terms came to be though there is something to be said for how English can be quite interesting. "I phoned a pizza" may seem like I am actually telephoning to a pizza when in reality, the likely explanation is I'm ordering one over the telephone but it becomes common usage. You may just have to find a way to get used to terms having their meaning here though be thankful that finance isn't quite as bad as trying to differentiate between the famous/infamous or flammable/inflammable, that one would think should be opposites.

comment Why are financial terms not self-descriptive or well-chosen?
While I had this as an answer, it makes more sense as a comment. If someone challenges your ownership, what evidence would you have? That is your security and is the point of the term. Consider the "Securities and Exchange Commission" in the U.S. as a somewhat old use of the term Security here stemming from the 1930s.

comment “1st Prize” or “1st Rank”?
1st Place may be more common than Prize or Rank.

comment Advice on rhetorical usage?
Rhetorical suggestion would seem to be closer to what I think is meant though the idea is that the advice is merely a starting point is something else to note here. The idea being that if someone sees themselves in a mirror that there would be more changes to come, assuming the idea is that once the person seems oneself in the mirror this will cause some other adjustment.
