I'm the Fundraising Database Officer at Alzheimer's Research UK (the UK's leading dementia research charity). These days my work primarily involves two types of programming: tools for manipulating large data sets and libraries that add features and polish to our database tools.

I've just finishing my PhD in sensory substitution devices at the University of Sussex. Many of the projects have been very code-heavy and I wouldn't have made it through without Stackoverflow - thanks guys!

I started hacking in VBA in Excel, so blame Joel for me being here. For a while I was the geeky half of an awesome web design duo, so I'm quite at home with PHP (esp. cakePHP and Wordpress), jQuery and other web related things. I've also a special place in my heart for prolog - possibly the most fun I've had with a language.

I'm currently looking for work. If you're hiring, you can find my profile on Careers 2.0.

comment How long does it take for a simolean gift to arrive?
In the end, all of my gifts have come through. Some took longer than 24 hours (real time), but they all came through in the end.

It sounds like it probably was gobbled by a bug. Ah well..

comment How do enemies scale with the player level?
Actually Jonas B is correct. While the class of NPC is dependent on location (as you describe), the "variant" (read: level) is based on the level of the player. For instance, Spore Carriers can be normal, or brutes, or runts: fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Spore_carrier Similarly, Deathclaws can be babies, young, blind, normal, legendary etc.
