    At the risk of having a serious, non-geek response, ;-) I am an architect. Ask me anything on the intricacies of door schedules and thee shall receive a boring response.

    I also do a fucking great veg curry.

    Umm. I'm a certified Blackberry Support Technician. Although my current job does not require it so I'm quite out of practise.

    Why are blackberrys such a fucking pain in the arse? Why do they need their own server side software when every other smartphone just connects to an exchange server?

    Not an expert but have a great deal of knowledge on pharmacology from my Uni days but graduated 2001 so may have to look some stuff up.

    Would more likely be able to help with any info required about dental work or dental issues people have. Work as a nurse in a dental hospital.

    I'm an expert in recording music, programming MIDI for sound and all that kind of stuff. Well, expert probably isn't quite the right word but I do know a lot about it all.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I know a bit about obesity & cancer research. You don't want to know anything i can tell you!

    My true specialities are talking rubbish about music, games, fitba and general shite. Once upon a time i also knew a bit about running, cycling and going to the gym. Then we had kids.

    Resident expert in all things drumming reporting for duty. That's about the full extent of my skillset.

    What are your thoughts on 'burying the beater' (matron!) for the kick drum? I try to rest my foot on the pedal so the beater is just off the skin but have been told the foot down method provides more accuracy?

    As Stickman said, I don't like it :)

    In much the same way that I don't like duct tape on toms, or duvets in kick drums. Drums are supposed to resonate, that's what makes them sing. There's a reason that high end kits have kicks without mounting plates, and toms with suspension mounts to hold them by the rim instead of sticking a pipe or mounting plate on the shell; because anything that stops the drum, either the shell or the head, from resonating is killing the natural tone of it. By burying the beater you're effectively stunning both the head and shell, preventing either from vibrating fully.

    That's my objection sonically. Technically, you're also effectively doubling the prep work before each stroke. If you get the beater back in position for the next stroke immediately after the previous one then you only need to make your downstroke, instead of up then down. It might seem like a negligible difference, but at speed it can make a huge difference.

    But since you play off the head anyway this rant wasn't strictly necessary, but I couldn't resist :)

    I have a good knowledge of astronomy and a more limited knowledge of astrophysics. The stargazer app on the iphone has made me kind of lazy though.

    No longer manually line up the telescope even though I know where a star is.

    I've forgotten more about Biochemistry than most. All round non-physics science is my area, I guess. But mostly genetics, proteins and any combination thereof.

    I'm doing that at the moment. I've started lessons again recently :) I've had a bit of a hiatus- did grade 7 years and years ago, before uni. I'm definitely not as good as I used to be, but it's coming back quickly.

    Is Nickthegun still a macfag? :-)

    To add to this stupendously useful thread I'm a spatial expert. Pronounced Spat-e-all according to an interviewer at Google but never mind. All things maps, hotspots, gps, sextants...

    Not sure I'm really an expert in anything. I know quite a bit about quite a few things, but I'm not sure I'd be the go-to person for anything in particular (except perhaps help with French/German languages).

    I know a bit about the following
    Computers
    Tax
    Law (mainly contract)
    Games
    Music
    Food

    On all of the above topics, there are other EG'ers who know a lot more.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Come to me for private jets and scheduled airline tickets.
    Discreet 24 hour VIP service available.


    I also pride myself on a self taught "knowledge" of greater Manchesters back roads, dirt tracks and cycleways. Hale Barns to Harpurhey? No problem.

    Thailand, Thai language and Bangkok. Though probably not the areas that most people would want to know about. :-D

    Reasonable amounts about English, Mathematics and computers. Also reasonably adept at chucking custom firmware on anything that will take it.
