About me

I'm a teen software developer who relishes hacking PHP on the Web, C# on his PC and Objective-C on his Mac. I adore math, Jesus, Apple and π, but not apple pie!

I've been a LEGO fan all my life (literally, since birth!). My parents have stopped buying me sets now, unfortunately, but I have spent thousands of dollars on at least 20,000 bricks in total in my childhood and preteens alone! Some of my most favorite themes of all time include classic Knights' Kingdom (from 2000), Rock Raiders (also from 2000) and BIONICLE. I own nearly all the sets for the former two, and still hope to complete them even today.

Check out my site. Read my tech blog. Follow me on Twitter (if you dare).

You forgot to close it :)

comment How do I build a paper feeder with LEGO to transfer a single sheet of paper from a deck robustly?
I think only you can answer your second question, since you're the one building it.

comment Which computer games came in jewel cases with LEGO studs?
LEGO Alpha Team was a great theme with a not-so-great game (compared to Rock Raiders, at least) :/

comment Of what fell beast did this olive drab carcass come?
The actual theme was called Life on Mars. I have both sets.

comment What was the first set produced by The LEGO Group?
While it is OK to post separate questions asking different things, there is no need to say things like "I have yet another question". Just ask!

comment How many different types of Lego bricks have been produced?
How many different kinds of bricks... or how many bricks in total? An all-time tally of all bricks ever made would probably be in the trillions.

Never seen that before. I can only imagine...

comment Which computer games came in jewel cases with LEGO studs?
Not fair! My copy of LEGO Loco only came with the manual in a big box, and no studded case or toy :( (have a +1 though!)

comment When did LEGO stop producing Technic action figures?
Wow, I haven't seen them in forever.

comment Why do some minifigs have yellow heads and some are flesh colored?
I remember back in the old LEGO Club days, there was a guy called Redini who would answer questions by club members. One of them asked a similar question, except phrased more simply: "Why are LEGO people yellow?" While the old LEGO Club site is nowhere to be found, forum posts from the same era quote his relevant answer verbatim... not sure if I should bother quoting it as an answer here since it was answered way before more minifig head colors appeared.

comment Why are there extra pieces in my set?
I'm sure it's just a bonus.

comment Is there a reliable way to determine what minifigure is in a LEGO Minifigures series package?
@Joubarc: I did that for every single bag in every single set.

comment What is the smallest LEGO component?
A picture would be immensely helpful here. How thin is a thin pencil lead anyway?

comment Why does LEGO have a maximum age limit?
@Joe Wreschnig: I've seen those too!

comment Which BIONICLE combiner sets do official instructions exist for creating?
@Pubby8: Oh, if you're referring to entire combiner sets that are outside the BIONICLE line, then no. Sorry I wasn't clear :S

comment Which BIONICLE combiner sets do official instructions exist for creating?
@Pubby8: If there are official instructions for combining with non-BIONICLE sets, I suppose they're fine.

comment Which BIONICLE combiner sets do official instructions exist for creating?
Some of the "combiner sets" referenced in the wiki link above are in fact alternative builds. I don't think these should be counted... unless LEGO made instructions to build them, which I highly doubt.

comment Are the X-Pods balanced?
Robo Pod would definitely be superior. I know this because it is green and it is robots.

@Grandpappy: That looks beautiful.
