Me, Myself, and My Family

I'm a 23 year old, married guy living in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I have a six-year daughter and two cats. I was married in July of 2002. We live in a small apartment above some disgusting chain-smokers!! <cough>

Work and More Work

My contract (and my new wife's) expired at the end of August. We worked for General Electric, which is one of the very few places to actually make any money in this part of the state (the alternative is to live in one of the gross cities of Pittsburgh or Philadelphia). I want to work for a software company but none exist around here... the closest to software companies we have around here are Microsoft shops specializing in ASP and VB stuff... I'd love to make real applications for linux as my full time job...

College, Skills, and Hobbies

I graduated in August from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Management Information Systems. I want to go back to get a degree in Computer Science since that is what I'm really interested in. Then go on to get my Masters...

I've offered a fresh way to deal with the use of "sessions" in Galeon2... lets use the concept of "workspaces" instead. I don't think there are many people out there that have any predefined bias towards that approach. There are few standards out there on how to workspaces should work (be implemented)... I think. This would allow the Galeon team more room to grow so they could define how workspaces should be implemented (standardizing for all of gnome [possibly]).

Red Hat Linux

I posted my first bug to bugzilla on today. It seems the new kernel (2.4.18-17.8.0) has an issue with my Dell Inspiron 8100. My unofficial conclusion is "the maestro3 module causes esd to peak my CPU for an indefinite amount of time". I have to be able to listen to music while I work!!


I can't wait for the release of 0.4 (coming very soon)... I haven't compile the CVS version but I was told it's made a lot of progress since 0.3 and becoming quite usable.

I'm trying to make my first inroads in the Open Source communitiy. I've established communication with the Rhythmbox team. I would like to be able to help more but I'm just learning the GNOME/GTK API and getting back into C.

sisob showed me how to produce RPMs for Rhythmbox, but unfortunately I run Redhat 8.0 and so does he... so he has the RPMs for Redhat 8 done before I can help.

Oh well ... I find another way to contribute. I can test and learn how to submit bug reports. Once I learn the GNOME/GTK API better I might be able to offer patches also.

New Advogato Features

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.
