My first exposure to the world of Free Software came with Linux. An SLS installation with kernel 0.99.14 on my trusty 486DX-33 was the springboard for all my future meddlings with open source code. Actually my first comtribution to the world was a port to Turbo Pascal of the legendary XLIB library for DOS (nothing to do with X11, but with VGA's mode-X). After I released that into the public, the only app I wrote for it was a graphical WadManager for Doom. A while later I started playing with the GIMP, and together with Raphael Quinet, I did the "Preferences" page for 1.0 (it's different now). I then moved on to SANE, where I worked a bit on the GTK+ GUI. I played a bit with KDE, mailing patches daily to get it to compile on the Solaris workstation I used at work. Then cam GNOME. Some small fixes and Italian translations later I decided I wanted to write a "do all/be all" GNOME media player, and you can find its ashes smouldering in GNOME's CVS. Most recently I've been hacking on Exult, the crossplatform Ultima VII engine.

It's my last day at my current job. The future is looking good.

Made Exult use 16 bit sound, so Timidity music is much cleaner. Willem Jan finally made my GIMP SHP plugin support the correct origin for all frames in a shape.
