Semi-retired client-side developer - javascript/jQuery (plus HTML/CSS of course). Prefer to work in an environment where someone else does the server-side stuff but will do PHP if pushed.

I still take on IT work if (a) I'm interested (b) I know I can deliver and (c) the price is right.

Experienced at remote working.

comment Which kind of problems are described as “That's no rocket science”?
I disagree, "that's no rocket science" doesn't simply means "that problem is easy or straightforward." Use of the phrase would generally imply criticism in exactly the same way as "he is no rocket scientist". In saying "that's no rocket science", there's an implication that less than adequate intellect was brought to bear.

@itsbruce, if I believed that, then I wouldn't have posted this answer.

comment Is there a word to describe someone who tends to disagree with others only to upset them?
Also "cussed", "perverse" or "stubborn".

"Awkward" can be used though it needs to be in the right context to convey the required meaning, for example "I tried having a conversation with uncle Percy having quite forgotten what an awkward devil he can be". Compare this with "I was made to feel awkward", which would convey an unfortunate social situation.
