Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, 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

comment How do the train wheels turn so smoothly?
I recall in my school CDT classes we'd make bearings by drilling a hole through solid nylon and pass a fairly tight fitting metal axle through that which would tend to spin quite freely. I also have some old trains axle bricks that are clearly made of at least 3 parts - a black outer shell, a clear base, and then red "tubes" inside that the axles locked into. It's possible that the tubes are made from a slightly different plastic with a lower CoF than standard bricks (which use friction to lock).

comment Do LEGO bricks float?
True - the fact that they aren't water tight was demonstrated very well by James May when he built his LEGO house, complete with wine glasses that leaked red wine everywhere ;)

@Ambo100 by "a more mechanical solution" do you mean that you're happy to toggle switches, or that you want to build the equivalent of a music-box cylinder?

comment How do I build a curved wall?
Cheers, that's a bit wider than I was looking for I think, and sounds a bit stressful for some of my older bricks.
