    Been reporting bugs and issues for a week, figured I'd introduce myself.

    I'm a french-canadian, college math professor currently on sick leave due to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). So I have a rudimentary sense of what programming entails but no professional skills to speak of. I also have a lot of time on my hands for the weeks and months ahead.

    Fast-paced, flashy games are too hard on my brain yet so I ran through UFO and TFTD last year for giggles, on the delightful OpenXcom. Then OpenApoc came knocking.

    You guys are doing god's work on my childhood nostalgia and I'm thrilled to help you along. As I said, I'm no programmer — but keep steering me into being useful and I'll do my best to lend a helping hand.

    Cheers,
    B

    That will be out of my league for a while, due to the brain injury. I try not to overdo playing so it doesn't tire me out. Eventually, sure, that would be possible - might take a year though.

    Thanks. Targets are gradual physical activity beginning this summer, back to work in the fall. If all keeps going well. I'll be back 100% then or thereafter, so I'm ok with the ordeal. It also gave me a chance to revisit XCom :)
