I wish I got to mess around on websites (well, other’n here, anyway).
Want to swap? Databases are Very Interesting Things.

Thank you, but I had my share of databases in the past (and currently, actually). There is no activity as dumb and brain-killing as filling in entries iin databases…....except filling bags of kroepoek crisps.

“Joo” like “Yo” (as in: “Yo man!”), and then “st”

Of “Joost”? Not really, this is a typical Dutch name. Maybe Justin comes closest.
