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 Why are kettlebells so expensive?
This question is very borderline to being "off-topic" as per the FAQ, as it only qualifies for the "gear and gadgets" category. However, since this is really a question about the price of a piece of gear, and not a question about the gear itself, I'm closing it as off-topic.

comment Can one be on a ketogenic diet and not go to the gym?
Excess protein leaches calcium from your body, taking it from your bones if you don't have enough free. There are some basic calculations for the amount of protein you need in my answer on "Protein: How Much is Too Much?"

comment Are there any recommended exercises to help manage a torn rotator cuff?
You definitely need to see and talk to a physical therapist or a medical professional for diagnosis and treatment, as each individual and injury are unique and a medical professional is the only person qualified to answer these questions.

comment Does one exercise per body part work?
I agree with @Kate, this isn't "one exercise per body part". If a person truly did one exercise per body part, they would come out looking and feeling rather lop-sided... huge biceps with no triceps... bad things like that. Think about it: he has 9 or 10 exercises there (counting abs). How many muscle groups are there in the body? Check out the major muscle group diagram on odec.ca/projects/2006/sabh6a2/2.htm.
