I'm a developer from Takoma Park, MD.

At the office, I work on MSSQL, C#, VB.NET, Javascript, ASP.NET.

At home, I'm a vegan, a sci-fi fan, dabble in foreign languages and enjoy book clubs.

I will try to up vote everyone who answers me and I thank everyone who has freely given me some of their time to answer my various questions.

comment My English translator capitalizes every noun. Is it correct?
It's style, like other say. To me, it makes it look like German.

@Mari-LouA I tracked down the link on archive.org -- although archive.org can be flaky too.

comment The dark dot in your eye
Just in case anyone gets here via google-- if you see a really large number of these all of a sudden, that can be a sign of retinal detachment and would be a good time to visit an ophthalmologists-- it's one of those things that can lead to blindness if not fixed within hours. Occasional floaters happen to everyone and aren't as interesting.

comment What does the end of sentence “eh” tag mean in Canadian English?
This is a really, really common Canadian mannerism. I've met Canadians that do this genuinely, that do this in jest, and it is a what comedians seize on when imitating Canadians. I just have never lived in Canada (or along the Canada-US border), so I'm not sure what it means.
