I'm very much a night time person, I do some of my best work in the early
hours of the morning!
I don't object to face to face meetings at all, as long as they are relevent
to what I'm doing in the context of development, but sitting in an office
with chatter about last nights match doesn't constitute that!

They are, in that they are often embedded in sites I have already done, the
underlying source code of which can then be revisited to remind me how I did
it. But I have no intention of putting my raw source code online anywhere
thanks, some things like the ideas behind the associative postcode mapping
system took a long time to code and I'm not giving it away free! :-)
