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 Frequency & Recency in Google Analytics. How to read the histogram?
The reason there are lines with more than the line before is because they are aggregate lines: Count of 8: 22 Sessions; Count of 9-14: 69 Sessions. If that line was broken down into the individual counts of 9, 10 11, 12, 13 and 14 you would see a continuation of your monotonically decreasing scale.

comment What is Manifest for Web Application, and do we need it?
I'd say "not yet" based on the warnings on the top of the page: "Implementors need to be aware that this specification is extremely unstable. Implementors who are not taking part in the discussions will find the specification changing out from under them in incompatible ways.". If Chrome's the only browser currently implementing this, you're still going to need to implement the fallbacks anyway for now...

While they might well be doing that, there is no explicit guarantee that they will.

Removed the full pingdom.com url from the question title - it was breaking the title in the email

comment Do people still use RSS feeds?
You could publish an RSS feed containing only the summaries/standfirsts of your articles, with a "read more" for readers to click through into the main article on your site - then everyone wins ;)
