Full Biography

This is a profile operated by Sembee for the calendar year of 2009 only. It has not been used since.

A statement on why I was posting under a different name was made here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Q_24045567.html
Original Sembee profile with more information about myself is here:: http://www.experts-exchange.com/M_2289328.html

The target was top 25 experts by the end of the year 2009. However I failed to reach that target by just over 200,000 points (or around 10 days at my usual scoring rate) ending up at number 27. In a single 12 month period I scored 8,277,813 points. (When you read this, the profile may well have more points and a higher place in the all time experts table due to clean up, and then over time will slip down the table).

This was a 12 month experiment which has now ended and I am no longer participating in new questions under this profile.

And yes you can still hire me if you are in the UK: http://www.sembee.co.uk/ (Amset has had a name change).

I maintain a list of Exchange resources here: http://www.exbpa.com/

So that is from zero to top 150 in three months, top 100 in four, top 75 in five and half, top 50 in eight and half.
I also think I have the highest number of followers.

I was also the previous holder of the fastest to 1 million points.

A few things to note:

The email address attached to this profile no longer accepts email. That means any posts in questions where I participated under this profile I will not get notifications for. If you have a follow up point - ask a new question.
Do not send email to my business address asking me to look at a question - I ignore those email messages.

Experts - DO NOT rip off my work. I always complain and ask for it to be removed - no exceptions. Link to my web site/blog or previous answer, but do not attempt to pass off my work as your own.
