I'm a hobbiest programmer working for IERUS Tech, Inc, a start up R&D firm in electromagnetics.

I am an avid VB.NET fan, and I recently have come to love Qt with C++. I enjoy writing programs just to see what I can do, which usually follows me wondering how far I could take it, and wondering what more I can add.

My sandbox of all the things:

Hello. C write I. Me no know English but good programmer very.

Well, you shouldn't sign it if you're his student. That's like signing up for Anal Commando IV, as a training dummy.

Keyboard error or no keyboard. Press F6 to continue.

I'm not the kind of girl that dereferences on the first night

@MikeDeck Honestly, I prefer to stay within the SE family as much as possible, mainly due to quality. I understand the site is titled Maintenance and Repair, however it's the best thing I could find for a motor vehicle Q&A in the SE family. See also: "But why create a second site which will just divide the attention of users interested in cars, when we can just broaden the definition of this one?"

comment Automatic transmission: Is shifting to neutral while approaching stops bad?
I believe WRT manual transmissions, the idea was to reduce wear on the clutch and use the brakes instead, which are far easier to replace.
