2009's Note:
Wow, the information below is really old. I probably haven't logged into this account in 5 years. I'm gonna leave the old info there because it's like a time capsule.

In 2009 I work at Bloomberg on random software projects ranging from HR applications like employee performance management and payslip delivery to managing development of the Equity Fundamentals product (FA if you know).

2003's Note:
I am currently at Michigan State University and will receive my Master of Science in Computer Science in May 2004.

I hack on the Cygwin/X project. Around April/March 2001 I accomplished my goal of rewriting the X Server so that it would run on Windows 95/98/Me in addition to the previously supported Windows NT/2000. I wrote a Contributor's Guide to make it easier for people to contribute to our project.

I've recently created a new blog at huntharo.com. Figured I'd put a link here. Topics I'm covering are Qt 4.x development, software architecture and coding tips, and projects I'm working on such as Morse Code Beeper 2009.

Yesterday I released a buildable development framework for Cygwin/X that will allow us to finally make a Win9X compatible X Server; it has been thirteen weeks since I discovered the Cygwin/X project.

Any interested Windows GDI, DirectDraw, or X programmers can read the easy to follow installation instructions in the Cygwin/X User's Guide . The development framework announcement contains very much information that potential contributers will find useful.


Hmm... done talking about software... nothing else to talk about :)

7 Sep 2000: I have never contributed to a free software project before

8 Sep 2000: Bitched about how Cygwin/X was too hard to install.

10 Sep 2000: Posted Cygwin/X Installation How-To draft (Word document, ick).

11 Sep 2000: Submitted patch for Cygwin Setup bug that showed up when saving to some versions of Samba shares. (Some versions return ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND when a directory doesn't exist; Windows returns ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)

12 Sep 2000: Spent day trying to get DocBook/SGML installed.

13 Sep 2000: Translated Cygwin/X Installation How-To draft into DocBook/SGML.

Heh, it seems that contribution to the community is one of those things that just happens to you without being planned, like a wife and kids. :)
