iPhone app programmer since 2010/04/27, previously worked in my small company as web designer+programmer. I've programmed all kinds of languages since 1983, but as yet I have limited experience with Objective C, Cocoa, and XCode.

Two medium-skill apps released so far, and I feel I'm at the level where I can code and debug anything on the iPhone and understand the workings except in some rare cases. I can still feel baffled and stifled when implementing new framework features, but usually have no problem getting them going with some reading up.

It's still a long distance till I feel quite at home with it all, but I've come a ways.

Now, that's my kind of dictionary! :) Sometimes it takes sarcasm to stump people who talk more than they think. Best answer here.

comment “Time zone” vs. “Timezone”
Nobody has any idea what Google (or other web searches) does to the words you type in the search box, or what it considers a match. It may also add search terms it considers related to pad out results, and remove search results it considers old or misspelled. A web search has no application for checking spelling other than finding an on-line dictionary for you, so you can actually look it up.

comment Is “such a cooler” proper English?
This is hilariously enough the correct answer. Yes, "That's such a cooler design" is correct English. You are identifying a cooler as having the same design as the one previously referenced.

comment Proper adjective for an addictive TV series
Ah yes, Google Books, that fine resource not yet available in my country. When region coding comes to literature. Let's make it unavailable to all US Immigrants from other countries. You're not being consistent and thorough, Google.

Highly addictive? Unless you think speaking correct English will give you strange looks from your friends.

comment Word for seeing both sides of an argument
@MattЭллен I hope to never become a neo-classical deconstructivist philosopher. ;) StoneyB, no, you changed from the right track to the wrong one there, I think. Mark answers for deletion all you want, I'm marking yours as the answer, because in the end I went with, "...while my kind of dialectic might not..., it ...".

Laugh of the day. What a collection of humoriora :) P.S. blog is an short form of "web log". Sorry, couldn't help myself. Why is "one of the only" so funny? :)

comment Synonym or equal phrase to “merely philosophical”
And this is what I did, and also justified the reason. It now finishes, "... is [therefore] wholly unrelated to the understanding of the knowledge it can be said to convey ..."
