I'm a literate, articulate, eclectic, computer programmer at the bleeding edge of technology with a deep passion for language and languages of all flavours.
I will most likely wait for the dust to settle on the changes which are about to occur in the way that rankings are established before deciding whether my current work in progress gets an airing on here. I am just somewhat surprised that it took HC so long to get round to trying to fix something which was so obviously broken and open to abuse.
