I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment Pandemic's difficulty seems to rest on the placement of the first epidemic card in the deck
you deal-out cards to each player BEFORE shuffling-in the Epidemic cards.. this is 8-9 cards removed from the deck, meaning each "quarter" of the deck is more like 12 cards, not 15
