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

comment Is it possible to build simple logic gates with LEGO mechanics?
Glad your site is back up now - at the time I'd linked to Keshav's post, the link to your original blog was dead :( I'm also not sure what you mean with the decoupled comment - it looks to me that you can indeed move the input rods back out and effect the output, due to the hinging effect on the levers.

comment Remote Control option NXT Mindstorms
Hi, welcome to LEGO Answers :) This site often works best when you're asking a single answerable question - and you appear to have 2 or 3 questions in here: "Why can't I remote control my NXT?", "How should I programme the robot for simple motion over Remote Control?" and "What does the Action button do in the Remote Control panel?". Please feel free to ask them separately :)

Don't really think [lego-games] or [video-games] are appropriate here.

comment Explaination of LXFML file contents
Note that while LU had a number of LEGO models in it, the world as a whole wasn't made of LEGO elements - the landscape was still a standard "terrain mesh" type of thing.
