I've been a developer for over 30 years in one form or another. I learnt Pascal at University and my first job was programming in Fortran 66. I've since moved to C# & .NET via Ada, C and C++.

Over the years I've used most operating systems (apart from MacOS), starting with PR1MOS and then moving onto various flavours of Unix. I'm now exclusively on Windows, but thinking of getting into iPhone/iPod touch/iPad development (if only I could afford a MacBook Pro!).

comment SymbolHound: Search Stack Overflow for special characters
Though the site does say it searches multiple sites - "SymbolHound searches a growing index of programming websites", maybe there aren't that many posts with the copyright symbol in them.

@TimStone - superuser.com/questions/301333/… - private extensions etc. don't auto sync.

@TimStone - yep - that seems to have done it. Just have to remember to do it home as well :)

@TimStone - do I have to do anything to get the latest version? It's still showing the incorrect link for both the comments and the history.

The history link is broken again (see my update)

comment Stackathlon 2.5: Leader board for users active on multiple sites
How often does/should this update? I've just hit 1K on SF (and well over that threshold on SO and SU) but haven't (yet) appeared on the page.

Cheers - I was quite prepared to do it myself ;)
