Hello there! My name's Jordan Earls and I'm a programmer. Recently, I've been doing almost exclusively work in .Net with C#, a bit of raw IL, and in some cases a hefty serving of code generating T4(it's the meta-future!). Sometimes I do a bit of embedded/electronic work with C and C++(http://mbed.org rocks, btw). And finally, I have at least some competence in Ruby, Delphi, and Javascript.

I currently work for PreEmptive Solutions on the Dotfuscator team and troll the dotfuscator tag on occasion.

Most of my personal projects are open source and BSD licensed. The majority of them are at bitbucket with the rest of them being listed on github

Also, you can follow me on the twitters @earlzdotnet

comment What should be done when your child wakes up from a nap and is extremely irritable?
That would actually make sense, we'll have to try that next time

For point 1, sometimes she'll nap late (like an hour or two before her regular bed time) and we know from experience that if she takes a long nap late, she'll either not be sleepy when bedtime comes, or she'll wake up through the night

comment Using a visual device to indicate good/bad behavior status for toddlers
As for the last part: What if your child doesn't want to eat dinner, but then complains that they're hungry for some junkfood (and when the meal is something they usually enjoy)?

comment How do you stop a child from talking back without discouraging them from asserting themselves?
With our daughter getting her to reason what she's saying no to usually works (unless it leads to a tantrum, which is happening less and less). The only thing that really sucks about this method is when your kid has a good reason for something you'd rather not do :)

comment Getting a kid to tell you Before they go to the bathroom
I never came back to this question to accept an answer, but this is actually what we ended up doing and now she's (proudly) been going in the potty for more than 4 months. Even accidents are very rare (and usually small dribbles when she is too focused on playing to go to the bathroom)
