I don't quite get what you mean by "experiment the same". As for the profile? It's just how my head works. By no means did I, nor would I, spend a lot of time on it.

Taking a leap at what you want - it's really just nature. Various people on and off CodeProject have their own nature and that leads them to how the do 'things' that can be done many ways. Coding does reflect quite a bit of the coder's nature.

Mine - I don't seem to have any boundaries in how my mind stores information. The cost of my last purchase of Jamaican Curry powder could be mentally adjacent to how a foreach loop is written in php. It doesn't matter - all things are part of all problem solving. There's a Latin quote for that: "If I cannot find a way I'll make one" - it's Hannible or Alexander the Great, or someone like that. That kind of view along with embracing insanity with gusto.

Look below, if you wish, to the link "Ravings en mass"

Me? - I'm heading home within the next few seconds.

Ravings en masse^
"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits." - Albert Einstein
"If you are searching for perfection in others, then you seek disappointment. If you are seek perfection in yourself, then you will find failure." - Balboos HaGadol Mar 2010
