My interests:

Comedy and Art:

I decided back in March/April, 2012 to combine Comedy with Art and start writing/drawing my own comics.

Web Development:

I wanted my own unique place to share these comics, so I started learning PHP to create my own website- Hitting Trees with Sticks.com, which I recently launched. Big thanks to the the Stackoverflow community for all of your guidance and encouragement.

Mandarin Chinese: (Moderator♦ on Chinese SE)

I've also been learning Mandarin Chinese for 6 years and have spent some time over in Taiwan (5 months) and Beijing (2 weeks). I was given the opportunity to provide interpretation for General Electric at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. To give back to StackExchange, I've recently become active in helping out on the Chinese Language and Usage site (http://chinese.stackexchange.com/).

comment What does 唰 (shua1) mean?
@StumpyJoePete kind of reach, but maybe Ocarina of time's Jabu Jabu (es.zelda.wikia.com/wiki/En_la_Tripa_de_Jabu-Jabu) is an extension of Shabu Shabu? :D

@Stan okay thanks for that. Actually I could access his original link, so I just searched his question and that's what came up. I'll edit my response.

Hi congliu. When providing unfamiliar translations/idioms as such, can you provide the source, pinyin, and explanation behind why this is an appropriate variation? Thank you.

comment How do you translate “hover over”?
@congliu Can you try to revise your answer to include 1) The fact that this may be a Sichuanese translation and 2) more context behind your answer? Otherwise, this could just be a comment
