Mobile application developer who freaking loves what he does - that's the most apt description for me. I mainly spend time writing something for Android, but I also play a lot with other technologies as well.

comment I've set off some TNT, what should I do?
I was relieved when I understood that the question is on the Gaming site and not something like Home Improvement.

comment What is Caroline's fate at the end of Portal 2?
I'd say that GlaDOS deadly actions like flooding the facility with the neurotoxin are results of her position as a head of the facility with the resulting consequences. Still, she was more or less sane, while Wheatley, when he found himself in her position, went completely nuts, effectively changing much of his personality (and revering back to it when he is detached from the "throne"). So I view this as GlaDOS being Caroline, but losing a lot of her personality and partially restoring it during the course of the game.

comment What's the key to failure in roguelikes?
+1 especially for the last one. I've played NetHack a lot and I know exactly what you mean. It can take only one stupid action to screw up the whole game.

comment Advanced Minesweeper Strategies?
Actually I don't see how using two mouse buttons contradicts with using question marks. The only way question marks can slow you is when you first set a mine and then changed your mind. Also sometimes you arrive at the point where you have to make suggestions of the possible mine locations and then check them. You can do it with the flags, but it is very easy to leave a false flag and lose. I would recommend to leave question marks on and to learn how to use them instead.

comment A strategy for Nethack progress?
I hope it helps. Ideally you have Magicbane wielded and a stack of daggers quivered. Of course, you can't find Magicbane easily, but you still should wield a dagger to train your dagger skills. Wizard relies much on his spells, but without the Eye of Aethiopica power regenerates slowly, that's why throwing daggers is the best way to keep monsters at a distance.
