I'm a Computer Scientist at Clarkson University, currently in my senior year. President/Benevolent Dictator of the Clarkson University Linux Users Group.

I first tried linux around 6 years ago, and have been using it as my main OS for about 4 years.

I haven't really contributed much code to the Free Software world other than DrinkMixer, but I tend to send in bug reports as I find problems. Hopefully, I can find a nice project that I can get involved in sometime.

zeevon: Have you tried The not so Short Introduction to LaTeX2e ? I learned LaTeX from that book and it goes into a good amount of detail. Also makes a good refrence.

So I downloaded the first part of Stephen King's new novel The Plant on line yesterday (yes i payed the dollar).

The book looks good so far, and I'm looking forward to the future chapters, but I fear that King's experiment will fail. There's no way that 70% of the downloads will be payed for.

I think king will have to reasses his definition of success before this experiment is over. If he ends up getting more money from this book than his average take from books he's sold through the brick and mortar channel, then i would consider the experiment a success.

volsung: Ingo Molnar talks about threading and processes in linux here. Look at question 6.

I've tryed to keep diaries like this one in the past, but it never seems to work out. We'll see how this works :|.

Gonna spend some time this weekend learning how to parse XML from jpython, using both the DOM and SAX. This should be interesting. BTW, if you like the java api, but hate having to type so much shit just to something simple, take a look a jpython, python is much more terse than java, and you can get alot more done in fewer LOC than in java.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
