Hi! You've just been directed my temporary temporal interdimensional portal. I'll get around to writing a proper homepage eventually in between fragging and developing. If you know me as a member of the open source software community, then by all means certify me.
For those who don't know me, I'm a 19 year old male from Sydney, Australia doing Computer Science at the University of New South Wales. My claim to fame at the moment is that I'm a founding editor and former writer at Debian Planet, a news and community portal for the Debian GNU/Linux community.
Currently at the time of writing this I'm also in the new maintainer pipeline at Debian and I already maintain several packages and plan to pick up more so all you debian-devel out there are gonna see a whole lot! Hehe = P
On the more ideological side of things, I'm a staunch defender of online civil liberties, mainly a socialist and environmentalist, though finding the time being an on campus activist is very hard. That probably explains why I'm so involved in the Open Source movement seeing I'm someone who truly believes in "information should be free". If you want to know what I think about most current affairs and social issues, then perhaps you should take a look at my occasional Kuro5hin writings and my diary eventually.
Personally, I enjoy playing Quake 3, Counterstrike as well as an odd game of Tetrinet (which I'm ruthless at) and Chess. My tastes in music mainly include Alternative Rock (especially Australian acts like the Living End and Area 7) and I don't mind Beats either. Sounding more and more like a dating agency ad doesn't it? (/me cluebats you if think so)
You can often find me the OpenProjects IRC Network as Netsnipe and you chat to me at ICQ:2194697.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
