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.

An additional note - the same company who makes that Couch to 5K app makes a Couch to 10K app for a 13 week course (rather than a 9 week course).

comment Do I need to take creatine and L-glutamine on rest days to maintain a load?
@Greg - as far as more, taking it on the off days will be more, but as a general rule people who take it multiple times daily take less at a time. The "optimum" amount of creatine is normally listed as 0.15g per pound of body weight for loading and 0.015g per pound for maintenance. Much more than that and your body just starts flushing it, adding stress to your body's natural cleaning systems.

comment How bad is high fructose corn syrup relative to the alternatives?
I agree with this, except I would say that sweeteners are a significant portion of the main issue since they are added to nearly all processed foods.

comment How bad is high fructose corn syrup relative to the alternatives?
Every study I've read on HFCS has found that there is no significant difference in the manner in which the body metabolizes HFCS and how it metabolizes standard table sugar - please cite a source. The body stores fat where the body wants to store fat - again would like to see a source. Being overweight in general increases the chances of heart attack or stroke. The two are not directly linked as you imply.
