C# : mainly WinForms and server-side bits. Design Patterns & Architecture  And Evolutionary Theory -- might come in handy one day.

SKILLS

Complaining.
Have done some WP7 programming. Worked on a bunch of Silverlight and WPF hobby projects. Haven't touched WinForms for ages: I do mostly ASP.NET for work but outside of that I want as little to do with it and HTML/Javascript/CSS as possible.

ASPIRATIONS

It'd be interesting to see how different people from the one I usually work with handle a project like this. I'm pretty flexible as to what part of the application I want to work on. I'd be interested in participating to an extent in the overall application design.

TIMEZONE

GMT+1. Time zones are a mystery to me.
