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 How can I create synthetic imagery (rendering) of LEGO models?
@dannystaple LDD has an extended mode that you can turn on using a config setting to access a much wider range of elements: eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=53760

comment How many themes have been released by LEGO?
@MajorStackings Don't forget that some themes also have sub-themes: brickset.com/browse/themes/?theme=Alpha%20Team lists two proper sub themes for Alpha Team, and City has around 13 core sub-themes, like Police, Fire, Space, Trains, etc. which you can see in the right hand column.

comment Can custom content be imported into LEGO Creator?
Normally a statement like that on Wikipedia would require a citation - odd that it's missing... Anyway, digging around elsewhere, the Brick model files had more than just the model data - they had actions, etc. associated with them, so aren't the same format as the LDD elements. rockraidersunited.org/topic/2944-lego-creator

Also: yes buying more battle packs/small sets is a good way forward, however TLG need to produce more variety so I can bick up these odd characters. Seriously though, I'm not going to not buy a Hasbro version of Ackbar (even in the "Vintage Collection") because I can get a LEGO one, I'm just not collecting the Hasbro figures any more - they won't fit with my LEGO sets ;)
