I'm passionate about coding and researching the history of technology as well as exploring where technology is leading.

I used to work in flight simulation doing both hardware implementation (electrical design, wiring), web development (design, development, webmaster), as well as software development (desktop development in C#).

I'm a big fan of both using and contributing to Open source projects.

I am the creator of the pypreprocessor library that can be found on PYPI as well as Google code.

comment What is Wolfram Alpha good for?
Use it for nutrition information. Just check out some of the posts on fitness.stackexchange to see what I mean. You can even adjust the search to different proportion sizes.

comment Limit search among a set of websites with Google Chrome
+1 holy, nice answer. You get my vote because this can be used on any set of websites. BTW, don't sign your answer we don't do that on these sites because your sig is already on the answer (ie. it's a waste of space and adds no value to the answer).

@ripper234 be sure to block sub-domains too.

comment How can I avoid sites that scrape and republish others?
Technet gets their honorary mention today because I just read a blog article on their site that exceeded my FUD threshold for the year. Experts-exchange OTOH shouldn't need (or deserve) an explanation as to why it's blocked.

I just discovered the feature used in my answer a few weeks ago and tech-archive was the first site I blocked. I hate that site with a passion.

I was waiting for this answer. It looks like google finally stepped up and created a viable alternative.

comment Is there any Social Translation web site?
@Andrew Unfortunately, yes... I have only used it for a few obscure titles with pretty good results (as long as you can navigate your way through the ads and popups).

I'm really happy to see this option move up the list. Even though it doesn't necessarily cover all of my requirements I personally think it has the most traction to becoming the next step in social networking. I've added a 50 point because I agree and you have provided a lot of good info here. Keep it up
