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 Is it possible to change the battery in a 54604 light brick?
Yep, the Winter Toy/Post Office and the Lighthouse all use a different brick and include instructions for using a key/screwdriver type thing to open them. These Exo-force ones apparently didn't. The "Minifigure with real torch/lightsabre" also don't include instructions for replacing the battery in the minifig's body.

I did check one of the instruction books for an Exo-Force set that used one of these bricks, and it didn't include details of how to change the battery (e.g. cache.lego.com/bigdownloads/buildinginstructions/4499765.pdf)

Well, I think it's the highest minimum age LEGO do - The Ultimate Collectors Edition Millennium Falcon was also a 16+, as does the Super Star Destroyer (shop.lego.com/en-GB/Super-Star-Destroyer-10221)

comment Is there a reliable way to determine what minifigure is in a LEGO Minifigures series package?
I've no idea, but was told he was a Christian. It's certainly nothing I've ever heard mentioned in a sermon, but others beliefs may vary ;) All I know is they had a sign on the boxes stating that they didn't contain any witches or vampires, and when I asked how and why was informed about the barcodes and religion respectively.

Ironically, the witch could be found by bar code, as Series 2 did differentiate by them - one UK retailer has a very religious MD, and they'd ordered their boxes without the Witch or Vampire figures :( But I've had very good success with the feel method, especially for the dwarf and gladiator figures in series 5
