TecBrat, the frankencoder:

I never expected to be a business owner, but circumstances led me to host and maintain a few websites, so I formed TecBrat.com LLC as a PHP Web Developer and am getting a good start. I'm sure I'll be on SO as much as or more than I was before.

Very little organized training (High School AP class in 1991) but several years of experience hacking together pieces of code.

I greatly appreciate the willingness of the community to help each other improve their coding skills.

Learning JQuery. I am hoping it is a shortcut to learning more JS. So far, I find it helpful and have begun to find extensions / plugins that make it even better.

I joined specifically for PHP programming Q&A, but I found myself much more active on EL&U for a while. I have only my own experience and my highschool education to guide my answers on EL&U.

(I changed the "f" in "franencoder" to lower case because the proper name apparently belongs to a guy name Phillip, and I wouldn't want someone else calling themselves "TecBrat")

comment “schmecken lassen”: Tuck in?
Interesting that while trying to learn German I learned a piece of Br. Eng. Thanks, Peter. I was thinking of the Am. Eng. Bedtime "tuck in" or "tuck in your shirt".

comment Difference between “Jaegermeister” and “Waidmann”
I'm definately not "very advanced". I can say "Es tut mir leid, mein Deutsch is nicht so gut." with the best of them though. :-)

comment Gibt es andere Sätze wie “Wenn Fliegen hinter Fliegen fliegen, fliegen Fliegen Fliegen hinterher”?
I was going to reference the same thing. I'll have to study that German expression later! :-) Mien Deutsch ist nicht so gut. :-(

comment Is “Mir ist kalt” correct? Did I hear it correctly?
No, completely different. The one from @tohuwawohu that you edited explains it better.

comment Is “Mir ist kalt” correct? Did I hear it correctly?
I thought I had replied to this comment earlier. Guess i never clicked the button. The other answer that says the same thing was posted about the same time as mine, so I didn't see it until later. I accepted it anyway, because it was more thorough than mine.

Okay, so I heard it pretty close to the way it is written, but why is it "Mir ist" instead of "Ich bin"? Is there a rule here I can apply to other similar phrases?
