Ben Duguid works in London, UK as Head of Back-end Development for Hugo & Cat, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

I don't think BrickPrinter sells used Pad Printers - are you suggesting they should bulk order from them? Even second-hand multi-colour pad printers seem to be listing around £2,000+

comment Determining what set I have from a bag of lego pieces
Hi Ashley, and welcome to LEGO Answers. As oddTodd's mentioned, for general advice on identifying sets, we have a very good question already - for more specific help you should post some pictures of some of the more interesting pieces (minifigs, distinct colours, etc.).

comment Virtual LEGO / Technics / Mindstorms simulation environments
Robotic Virtual Worlds does support the building of your own environments through the "Level Builder" tool, but I don't believe it supports importing your own robots yet - although the RobotC team were talking about it in 2013.

We had a similar question about Milky White with Sparkles bricks.

comment Some LEGO elements not attaching as usual
I've sometimes found that the larger plates (6x6 and up) have a tendency to warp slightly over time, meaning they often don't stick together well.
