I am a native speaker of American English.

My background is in computer science. I am fueled by coffee and a painful degree of empathy with usability test subjects.

I currently convert technical details to plain language for normal people, and convert normal language to technical details for programmers.

comment How should 'beseech' be used in a sentence?
Welcome, john! These are some good examples, but your answer could be better if you provide more of your own interpretation of how to use beseech. I edited your answer to make it clearer that these sentences are a quotation from the resource you linked - when you're writing a question or answer, you can use the symbol that looks like a quote mark to do this.

This answer could be improved if you tell us more about why you think it's the right answer. For example, is this expression very commonly used, or only used in some places and situations? In what context would it be appropriate to use?
