I live in England. I am a native English speaker, and retain some schoolboy French. I have a science degree.
I can program in Prolog, Perl, and PHP, and write raw html. I like maps.
I have added some Cayley graphs to articles. You can see one to the right, and at Pauli group. If you think it would be useful to have more such Cayley graphs of small groups in articles, please let me know, and I will try to provide them. But I won't upload them to Commons for you – I am no longer willing to struggle with the Commons upload process.
Thanks for edits
Maybe you have come here because I thanked you for an edit, and you are wondering what motivated me. I have certainly wondered what has motivated some of the thanks that I have received.
If I have thanked you for reverting an edit I made, it was to acknowledge that you were right to do so. Otherwise, it might be because I saw your edit, and thought "that is a conspicuously good contribution to Wikipedia." Or maybe your edit made me think "I wish I had said that." Or even both.
I have never had another Wikipedia account. Occasionally, through incompetence, I edit while logged out. My IP address is dynamic, and usually geolocates somewhere in central southern England. But if I'm in my kitchen, it can geolocate to Redmond, Washington.
