I'm the sole developer for a publishing house, doing on-line courses and exams.

We have a web designer, who typically does layouts and courses, but I do anything that involves programming logic.

comment “Positive” synonyms for 'problem' or 'worst'

comment What do you call an event that happens without a cause?
I remember spontaneous in chemistry as meaning the reaction would just happen when the two reactants came in contact. A non-spontaneous reaction would require an ignition or heat input. Baking soda and vinegar react spontaneously. A match igniting requires a trigger.

comment What is the player called who has a turn?
Generally several phases make a turn. 1 turn consists of, for example, Unit Placement phase, Movement Phase, Combat Phase. Some games interleave these phases between players, so the concept of a player turn doesn't work.

comment What's the idiom for getting lost in a (malfunctioning) bureaucracy?
I like mired. But fetid means (re)productive and doesn't belong in the same sentence as bureaucracy.
