I'm a Programmer with a BA in Mathematics, I used to be much more involved with Free-Software/Open-Source but due to long work hours I have little time to do actual development.
I'm mostly involved with Debian this days, doing packaging work, which is also needed but saps the little time I have for actuall hobby programming.

In the interest of tracking those who abandoned their Advogato diary to supposedly greener pastures, I've created Planet (former) Advogato. The domain ain't pretty, but it works.
I obviously missed plenty of peoples that have a new blog, but as usual in Open-Source, it's an early release. Let me know if you know of others that I should add.
Another side effect of that condition was that SpamAssassin got stuck. The effect of that was that further mails were not processed by it, they were sent right to my mailbox. And I had a reminder of what it means to have life without SpamAssassin. I got in a period of about 12 hours just over 300 spam messages.
Thanks to SpamAssassin folks, I don't need to suffer this on a day to day basis.
Now, if they only got this hangup bug fixed, all would be well.
Oh, and the Subversion peoples need to see what needs to be done with all those damn log files, they filled my HD. Still need to research what caused a single project to fill 12GB of disk space.
You can comment at my blog.
I've moved my blog to my website at http://baruch.ev-en.org/blog/.
I've imported all of my posts from Advogato into it, and posted a new one.
I still don't know if this will be my final post here, but I really like the fact that I can actually see how many are reading my blog and get comments on posts. I will miss the community sense.
Filed a bug report with Mercurial and it got fixed pretty fast, though I was asked to actually produce a small test case script. This turned out to be a good experience.
I've also filed bug reports and feature requests at AlbumShaper, and they get solved one by one. I'm still stuck with a bug that prevents drag-n-drop from working when using the Ion2 window manager.
I've been distracted from working by the Gramps program to generate the family tree. This is a really nice program and I've already got a lot of data into it. It generates some nice graphs with GraphViz. I need to figure out how to make it work properly with Hebrew in the text, currently Hebrew is munged and I use English names instead. This is a bit uncomfortable for those in my family whose English command is lower than their Hebrew command.
I've caused my parents to go out and ask for the missing pieces of information, so now I have better knowledge of my family tree, and hopefully a chance to preserve some of the family history.

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.
