" Have Code, Will Travel. "

Andrew Kozak (@andrewkozak) was born and raised at the Jersey Shore although his fair skin wouldn't give that away.  He is conversant in most modern technologies, has been programming since the third grade, remembers life before HTML had a version number, and prefers the hose for chasing kids off his lawn.  He enjoys writing and is an outspoken advocate of English spacing, Oxford commas, and Roman quotes.  Andrew also enjoys traveling, Olympic lifting, and studying a variety of subjects.  When not in front of a screen or under a bar, he practices calligraphy, occasionally judges costuming competitions, and continues to work on speaking as many languages as he feels he should.

comment Is it 一些东西 or 一点东西?
Be careful with the assumptions you're making here. In English, "some" and "a little" are not well-defined. Asking someone for "some" water or "a little" water is likely to yield the same amount of liquid in your glass. Even saying "I'll have some more" versus "I'll have a little more" makes no difference.

I have not encountered 故乡. Could you explain the distinctive formality a little more?

comment Different Ways to Say “Hometown”
So, something like 我还住在我的老家。 wouldn't be appropriate because the speaker still lives in his hometown? In this case, are you saying that it is better to use 家乡?
