I'm an avid programmer, enjoy creating things, enjoy a good puzzle and especially enjoy foxing people with a Java puzzle now and again!

Outside of my coding life, I have a number of other interests, including outdoors activities such as hiking / geocaching / letterboxing. I'm also fond of music - I enjoy listening to it as well as playing the piano and violin.

comment How can you navigate without a compass or GPS
+1 - I agree with all of those points. But if you do have a realistic method of finding where north is, that can never be a bad thing.

comment Are there any cheap 1:25K electronic maps for the UK or Europe?
@ChrisBallard I agree. The concencus here (outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/64/…) was that this question was ok, so respecting that I think it should be reopened unless someone comes up with a good reason otherwise.

comment What should you do if you are bitten by a rattlesnake?
I'd suggest it's not a duplicate because it's not the same for all snakes at all - the bite of a typical British adder is usually much less venomous and deadly than that of a rattlesnake.
