I am a PhD student in economics at the University of Pennsylvania. I used to study computer science at the University of Melbourne, and hack on GNU Parted.

I finally took some photos of my "new look". Please email me your comments, and permission to put them on my website! Also, I've put up an ideas web page. I wonder if I can turn it into a Wiki page?

I'm currently staying with ruda and kojima. Fun living with computer nerds that are marginally competent at other Life Skills TM. It would be fun to write a "manual"... :)

Uploaded Parted 1.6.0-pre1 today (finally)!

I'm going to Salvador on Monday, which should be Something Different TM :)

I arrived in São Paulo today... (~35 hours journey from Melbourne).\ Needless to say, I'm rather tired.

Also, due to one of the fundamental laws of nature (Murphy), my internet connection for my machine back at home died. So it has a new IP address (if it's up at all), that I don't know... I guess I'll have to call my family (a reasonable thing to do, when you arrive overseas ;) to investigate...

Wheee! Exams over, and I have some time for socializing and hacking! And I'm off to Brazil in 2 days...

Parted hacking: ported GPT support to 1.5.x (net change of -1000 LOC!), and wrote MIPS support.

Sister's engagement party: lots of fun, but I got a bit drunk (and felt a bit ill for 1/2 hour) :( Her boyfriend/fiancee ROCKS, and his GNU/Linux brainwashing is progressing well :)

Latest ponderings:

  • modernism vs post-modernism. Of course post-modernism makes more sense, but modernism is so much more fun!
  • social engineering / personal energy: how do you show interest, without dominating?
Maybe I should write some rants about the above.


  • Spent (literally) half of 2 weeks of holidays writing a compiler for a uni subject. It did some nice optimizations, but more importantly, I was experimenting with DAGs / blocks (as opposed to, say, 3 address code) as the intermediate form. All good fun :) Then, I find out the next project is to write an optimizing compiler... and the optimizations, etc. are completely different! :( More work to do!

  • Spent half the weekend on a tedious uni networks project (now "only" 4 more left to do for the semester, i.e. 3 weeks), and Parted maintainence. Such excitement.

  • Still planning my Brazil / Mexico trip with ralf. (~3 months in .br, and ~1 week in .mx). Yo preciso amigos del México para me ajudar decidir! A friend recommended Baja California... Really looking forward to .br, where I'll hopefully have time to write an NTFS resizer, in between getting drunk on the beach, etc.
