My name is James. I am a casual programmer and a full-time database administrator at a news publishing firm. I have been programming casually for almost 5 years now both for work and for leisure. My interests include learning new (human) languages, playing computer games and helping with the development of Wiktionary, an Online Dictionary. I love good food, especially Italian and Chinese. Musicwise, I am into symphonic rock, classical, country pop, jazz pop and various alternative genres.
