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 What things should I look for when buying a compass?
@MatBanik Advanced mainly - accuracy is important to me since a main use is letterboxing on Dartmoor where you need bearings at least to degree accuracy to triangulate your position properly.

comment What things should I look for when buying a compass?
@MatBanik Up to a point, I'm more after the characteristics that make expensive compasses better and in what situations they're worth it over their cheaper counterparts.

comment How do I recognize if someone is suffering from hypothermia?
Also worth pointing out that in the final stages the shivering can stop and the subject can feel too warm and start tearing off clothes - don't assume it's a good sign if shivering stops!

comment Where can I find information on letterboxing in my area?
@Pulsehead Dartmoor is a large national park in Devon, England - as for letterboxing, see the link I've added to the question but it's similar to geocaching if you're familiar with that (indeed, it's where geocaching first came from!)
