Pic is of my two sons in New Hampshire. They're both far better-looking than me.

I do lots of stuff; unfortunately I'm best at stuff with no practical use whatsoever.

Have read a lot, have professional work experience in teaching, direct care of the mentally handicapped, social work, experimental lab work, and computer programming. Oh, and movie theater ushering. . . which was probably my favorite job before the programming. . .

Work in Financial Services. I now serve as a business analyst for Legal and Compliance Technology.

Have a JD.

Play chess, prefer Sicilian (as black or white) and Ruy Lopez. Highest rating (when I practiced a lot) was around 1800 or so. Probably currently closer to 1400-1500.

[ambrus]: Corion: in that case I also ask the people who rent the conference rooms to tell conference organizers about the available tech.
[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
[ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
[ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
