My major contributions to free software are txt2html (the canonical text->HTML converter since 1994) and waterfall (an XMMS visualization plugin). Neither are exemplars of good coding style, but they both make lots of people happy. I'm also to blame for tons of small utilities and patches and artwork to many free software projects you've heard of.

Currently in the pipeline are a personal web indexer and a music analysis tool (as part of my Masters thesis).

Turned in my dissertation and put it and my code online. Anyone interested in automatic music analysis? I know a lot more than when I started and I'd like to throw away all the code and start fresh, but I'm definitely taking a break first.

I changed autojot so instead of logging everything you hit with your browser and getting it later (maybe from your cache), instead it caches everything itself for indexing. A little wasteful of space, but it solves problems of authentication and cache misses. As long as you run the indexer once a week or so, it shouldn't use too much space.

Finally made a Debian package for waterfall. Yay, my first package.

mhat: How do you specify the subsets? I want to be able to specify music by its contents instead of by its measly metadata. Examples: "uptempo jazz with lots of brass" or "danceable techno 110-130bpm".

jmelesky: I've heard good things about Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing by Manning & Schutze, and it's used in the statistical linguistics class here.

raph, I replied in detail to your waterfall comments in my previous entry, but you may not have seen my reply since I'm clobbering its recency with this one. Have you considered adding a threaded view of messages in your copious free time?
