Just an amateur and enthusiast. By day I play a mild-mannered financial professional in Japan. Here are a few of my side projects:

  • FinAnSu - An Excel add-in allowing the import of security quotes and web data in general, along with functions for option pricing, parsing CSVs, sorting data, interpolating rates, quicker access to accounting formats, etc.
  • Rupee - A financial library for Ruby
  • Konjac - A Ruby command line utility for translating documents using YAML dictionaries
  • Prisma Quotes - A Chrome extension to get live quotes and charts for stocks and securities from Bloomberg, Google, Yahoo! and Quote.com.
  • akamon-ec.org - The site for my club at University of Tokyo.
  • yaku - A reader for the excellent EDICT dictionary.
  • transcripa - Transcribe some languages into IPA.

comment Is this a slang, and possibly derogatory term, for “lesbian”?
One other point I'd add is that やがる is a distasteful way to end a verb. That is, 盗む+やがる=盗みやがる (to fucking steal). So what you should be looking for is 菓子を盗む rather than 菓子を盗み. It's a minor point because I don't think there are any metaphorical meanings, but I thought I'd clarify that a bit. My best guess is the translator thought the expression meant someone would eat anything and, realizing it meant nothing in Japanese, thought of a different way to imply gluttony.

comment Arabic numbers: half-width or full-width?
+1 I'm actually fairly certain full-width alphanumerics exist mostly for one reason on the web: to provide another reason for webforms to fail to submit. There has to be some kami, the Japanese Loki, who delights in the suffering of Japanese web users. In his mischief, he litters webforms with demands about using half-/full-width and ex/including hyphens, a zero before the month/day, 丁目, 番地, etc., as though the conversion were something fierce.
