I'm one of the authors (along with Jeremy Blackman of Listar (an open source MLM available at http://www.listar.org) and have been involved in open source software since well before there was such a word (at least commonly used) :) I've also worked with and on various mud servers such as TinyMUSH 2.0 (cowrote with Glenn Crocker), LPMud (maintained and extended LP2.4.5 American), DikuMud/CircleMUD (ported Merc MobProgs to Circle 2.20 and submitted various patches), I have also contributed patches (way way way in the past) to Crossfire and other projects. I was also involved in the past with FSP (I'm not even sure if it's still running as I gave up on it after people decided they were more interested in piracy than in a file transfer over UDP program).
Currently I am working at a startup company doing Network Attached Storage devices on a customized FreeBSD kernel. It's definately quite fun :)

Finally back to being able to do more than just briefly browse Advogato. Geez, lots of raised voices around here recently, which is a shame in a way. I'm personally hoping it settles down again, and I think it will. Since work (or at least a specific work project) seems to finally be done completely eating my life, I can finally turn my time and energy back to Listar, and to working on the code for the PBeM game which I ended up taking over (if you like PBeM strat games, check it out and feel free to join)

Well, that was fun. I spent the past couple of day making a hex-map viewer using PHP3, GD, and PostgreSQL so that I could view the hex-information for a PBEM strat game I'm playing. It works pretty well all things considered. Now to get it to display other useful information like hex resources and such.

Whee. :)

Well it's Friday. Most of today was spent deciphering how threads on Windows32 work (being a primarily unix geek, I haven't had call to look at them in depth before now). My work however relies on providing services and such for Windows NT. (Yes, even the Open Source thing I mentioned yesterday would be for NT)

Well, I'm new here, and mostly just exploring. We'll see if I can summon the creativity to post diary entries with any regular basis.

In a very cool move, my work is strongly considering making one of their projects Open Source and want me as the local Open Source advocate to spearhead it. We'll have to see how this goes, but it could prove very fun and interesting. It's cool to work at a place that values/understands my point of view on things like this :)
