Just thought I'd ask.

Also, is this your day job?

hehe - er... Thanks, thats the nicest compliment Ive had all week :)

Ive been coding as a hobby since I was 10. I did it professionally for about 5 years. However if you want the truth, I am a nail technician (albiet a pretty well known one if I dont mind me saying!) and have been for 10 years (actually now I'm a director for a large company that distributes and educates the industry) ;)

I only got into php and vb a couple years ago - so I'm still relatively new to it - however coding is more about thought processes then it is about the language and lingo you use. To me, I love coming up with cool new solutions to problems - thats why I enjoy coding however at the end of the day, its just a fun hobby thats quite rewarding.

Thanks :)

As I've mentioned before Sam's skills are certainly varied and extensive! Without wanting to stereotype nail technicians - PHP is the last thing you'd generally expect one to be adept in. Thanks for your work! :D
