Grey-haired geek, perennial polymath.

I used to develop in Java but I got tired of all the brackets and static typing, so I now play with Python.

In case people wonder about why I am also registered for the English and Chinese Stack Exchange forums, I recently spent a couple of years in China teaching English.

+1 for NATO phonetic alphabet. Useful in any context where you need to spell unambiguously, especially when there is background noise and/or sound distortion.
