Whats to say... well I'm a geek, I've always been a geek and I'll always be a geek.

I love writing software and tinkering with computer related stuff in general.

I run my own I.T consultancy company called "Digital Solutions Computer Software UK", I'm a Pluralsight author and the UK & Europe group manager for Lidnug (One of the largest .NET related user groups on the Linked-In network)

I'm a Microsoft Community Leader, presenter & lecturer of development related topics, oh and a Write a few computer books here and there for things like the Syncfusion Succinctly range.

I work across Linux, Unix, Windows and use lots of different languages in order to ply my trade, I've been working in I.T now for the best part of 30 years and will probably be here for at least another 30.

NO worries, I guess I'm just too used to "comment Nazis" on stack exchange, so if I offended I apollogise, but it often is the case when someone starts picking at my comments edits like this, there doing so just to be a PIA :-) as for flagging, I don't have the ability to do that yet.

comment How to digitize building footprints with orthogonal edges?
Hope you find it as useful as I did :-) If i get time, I'll write up a mini tut on using the other tools too once I master them.

As an author of 5 technical books now (soon to be 6), and a regular paid technical blogger and manager helping to run one of the largest .NET online user groups on the internet, I have a very good grasp on English writing, and especially English writing where technical descriptions may be needed, this is my way of giving back to a community that helps/has helped me very often, however if you dont want me to do that then fine, I won't, and if you don't like my edits then as always your free to edit them into something you do approve of, I am however not entering into public discussions about it

Hey folks, just hold on a second there.... Everyone seems to be under the impression I asked this question. I did not, the question was poorly worded and in the spirit of stack exchange being what it is, I decided to re-word it so that it read better. Now if folks have a problem with that, message me privately but don't start picking fault with my good intentions in public. As to dof's comment, yea, simply decided to rewrite it to mean the same thing so that it read better than it did originally.

comment How to digitize building footprints with orthogonal edges?
Ok, so here's the low down :-) It's took me a week, but I've learned a few things that I didn't know about QGis in that time. I have to say however, that it was your answer that prompted me to start thinking about using the tools in different ways, and even more so exploring tools/plugins that I'd installed but never got round to trying. I now have an answer that I'm going to document myself. Thanks however for giving me the initial push, but ultimately, yes it was a bit too cumbersome.
