I'm the user formerly known as md5sum, for those who wonder.

Currently, I'm a developer in the Property & Casualty Insurance division of Accenture Software.

I started playing with GWBASIC on our Commodore Colt at around 5 years old, and it was all downhill from there. I have now been programming professionally since 2005 and have several more years of part-time/freelance programming under my belt as well.

Currently, I'm specialized in C#, ASP.Net 2.0, and MSSQL, but my work experience is quite broad, including C++, PHP, Javascript, WPF, VB6, VB.Net, ASP.Net, MySQL, and I've dabbled in many others.

comment Is going to bed hungry going to help me trim fat?
Please explain why you believe that eating 3-4 hours is best. Also, how will healthy snacks keep you fit? Isn't it better not to eat snacks at all?

comment I am skinny, would joining a gym make me skinnier?
"Joining" a gym won't do anything but cost money ;) Working out at the gym could possibly make you lose weight, though. How exercise will effect you depends largely on the exercise and your diet. You'll need to add some more information about how you plan to work out for us to be able to give you a very good answer.

comment Can I get sugar and electrolytes from natural sources, as opposed to goo, during a race?
People bring various forms of food stuff with them on runs all the time anyway... drinks, gels, energy bars, etc. I would imagine it would be totally feasible to carry other, more natural food sources instead.

comment Crossfit Times MWF or TWTh
Just out of curiosity, if Mon/Wed/Fri was working well for you, why did you switch it up? I find the age-old adage quite useful here - "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
