I'm a former professional software engineer based in Texas. I love the C# programming language, and actually program leisurely as well.

My add-ons suite for World of WarCraft was quite popular. They have been downloaded a combined 400k times from the two main download sites (WoWInterface.com and Curse.com).

After 13 years working in IT and software development, I found that the field was no longer fun nor interesting to me. I recently quit my job to follow my childhood dream of becoming a novelist.

comment Filter specific words from Google search suggestions
I imagine it would filter the search suggestions as well, since -exclusion filters the term "exclusion" from your search.

comment Dropbox Referrer Bonus not applied
I had this happen too when I referred my father. I sent them an e-mail or clicked the appeal link (I seem to recall there was one) and got my referral bonus an hour later.

comment Why have some of my friends have gone missing from Facebook?
I have a few friends who get deactivated on a semi-regular basis, then come back the following week. I have no idea why. Either Facebook flags their accounts, or those friends have strange reasons for deactivating their accounts frequently.

comment Create a private album on Facebook for private automatic upload of photos from mobile?
@130490868091234 I believe you can only do this on the website. The idea is that you would create this album beforehand, and thankfully only once. Then you could always upload photos to it.

comment How to raise Google Reader RSS feed entry limit?
Are you sure this is a Google Reader limitation? I have plenty of feeds that display more than 20 new items in Google Reader. I suspect it's your RSS aggregator that only sends the latest 20 items.

comment Custom Gmail labels sort
I find that the greater-than symbol > looks best, but that's obviously a personal choice.

comment Why does Google Reader keep suggesting food blogs?
I wonder if maybe Google is using your search history and possibly the text of the e-mail you send & receive? Is food something you search for regularly or that you talk about? Or maybe someone in your household who uses your computer while you're logged into Google?

comment Gmail Filter on Email starting with '!' deleted everything
@Aarthi The option to Delete Forever disappears once you've applied any filter to your Trash.

comment Make Twitter recognize the <enter> key to post tweets?
Would Control+Enter work? Enter and Control+Enter often interchangeably share the submit/new line functionality. I don't use Twitter so I can't check myself.

comment On Facebook, is there any way to restrict access to individual photos I'm tagged in?
Mobile Uploads security is also set on a per-photo basis.
