Software Development Engineer at Amazon, commercial actor, and hobby photographer.

Non-exhaustive list of my favorite languages, in no particular order:

  • Native: C, C++, x86 ASM
  • Managed: C#, Java, .NET CIL/MSIL
  • Interpreted: Ruby

Experience in compiler development, OS kernel memory management, web applications, web crawlers, data mining, 3D raytracing, and data compression algorithm design.

Oh yes, and an obsessive-compulsive reader of Jeff Atwood's blog. I have fifteen different articles open as I type this.

"I want my ER doctor to understand anatomy, even if all she has to do is put the computerized defibrillator nodes on my chest and push the big red button, and I want programmers to know programming down to the CPU level, even if Ruby on Rails does read your mind and build a complete Web 2.0 social collaborative networking site for you with three clicks of the mouse." -- Joel Spolsky

@KeyBrdBasher Nothing wrong with the question, you answered it just fine :)

comment Change in neuralyzer color in MIB films
@TylerShads - In that case, wouldn't they have known about the watch? Why the hidden key? Would they really decommission K at the end of the first film without ascertaining the location of the trigger for such a massive neuralyzer? If not, that whole subplot is pointless. I still say it seems like his secret.

comment For Magneto, does being powerless mean he is innocent?
Citizen or not, he was genocidal. Seeing him go free seems akin to just letting Hitler go free, had he been captured after the war.

comment What is the main theme of The Dark Knight?
+1 I can't agree more. As someone who has not followed the comics, The Dark Knight really "made" the Joker for me. R.I.P. Heath Ledger.

comment Why doesn't the reflection match the man?
Poor Fentress, "his" consciousness must be having one hell of a day! Good answer, upvoted.

@Flimzy - In the facility dead, don't you mean? Goodwin terminated his life support in the first timeline.

@Flimzy - Transferred when? In the alternate timeline, the transfer didn't happen. Stevens is still back at the facility along with his consciousness.

comment Why doesn't the reflection match the man?
True, but up until the unplugging, he was Stevens. After the unplugging, Fentress no longer has any connection with Stevens, who is still a comatose body back at the Source Code facility. He's no longer Stevens-in-Fentress, he's actually Fentress.

comment Why doesn't the reflection match the man?
Right, as soon as he was unplugged, shouldn't he have changed to Sean Fentress? He is no longer connected to Stevens (who is back at the SC facility). He is no longer "Stevens acting as Fentress." The hardline is cut so to speak, and he now is Fentress. He is not Stevens anymore.

comment What is the significance of the narrator's fight and Tyler Durden's subsequent actions?
You're right, after having reviewed it again, I don't link Tyler's departure with the fight so strongly. In my memory they seemed much more connected. Good answer. I think the most interesting part is how Jack constantly seems disgusted by Tyler's actions, and yet secretly yearns to be more like him.
