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 Do iodine water treatment tablets have negative effects?
@RussellSteen This is true, edited accordingly - though it depends on the location and how much fuel you're carrying. Big difference between a dirty river that people dump sewage in and water collected from a clear stream on Dartmoor!

comment Where in Europe is wild camping permitted?
It's not the same thing unfortunately - freedom to roam doesn't necessarily imply freedom to wild camp. In the UK for instance freedom to roam applies over most countryside, but there are very few areas where wild camping is allowed.

comment How can I make/improvise a rope on a trip?
What sort of rope are we talking about - rope to be used for holding up a bear bag / tarp, rope for climbing, etc.?
