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.
How do Chinese spell English words over the phone?
+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.
Why do native speakers often say a character has “no meaning”?
+1 for a brave attempt to explain this in English when this is not your first language!
