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 Will my LEGO bricks discolor in indirect sunlight?
I've got some white elements that are noticeably discoloured evenly across the element, so while it's not sun damage, some bricks/colours do change with age.

comment Will my LEGO bricks discolor in indirect sunlight?
I was trying to get a decent photo of my discoloured white clone troopers, that were in indirect sunlight behind modern double glazing - they are noticeably yellower than some of the other pieces. Infant as the discolouring is even across the elements it can't be purely sun damage.

comment When did LEGO stop producing Technic action figures?
It's interesting though that they are still using the accessories - the latest Star Wars X-Wing (9493) uses the Technic Figure ski poles.

comment Which computer games came in jewel cases with LEGO studs?
Yep, I've got a copy of LEGO Creator that came with a "turbo" motor trike (with flames coming out of the exhaust). They still make the hardback books with bricks, I got an Atlantis one for my son last summer.

Doesn't it come with an "online" tutorial on the disc that takes you through various topics?

comment Why are there no faces drawn on the black heads?
Also as storm troopers were "descended" from Clone Troopers, you saw quite a lot of them without helmets in episodes 2 and 3 - I know a lot of us older Fans don't like to talk about them, by they are there ;)

Only the Scout Troopers tend to have eye sockets in their helmets, and the earlier sets had yellow heads with the "large sunglasses" printed on them: bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3626bpse

It's not just the yellow heads - the pink and brown ones from licenses also have faces printed on them.
