I guess I should start off my diary with a little blurb about myself...

I'm a Free Software programmer and Linux enthusiast since 1998. I work for (and own a portion of) Open Door Software Inc. and have contributed a few pieces of code back to the global community. I live in Toronto, Canada.

First Computer: Vic20 (Thanks Mom & Dad)
Known Languages: Perl, C, Bash, C++

Code Contributions:

  • http://search.cpan.org/author/KCK/
  • ttp://freshmeat.net/projects/connmgr/
  • Two patches for the GNOME Zenity application. One to implement console support for the gdialog perl wrapper for zenity and another to have the user input gathered via zenity returned via STDOUT instead of STDERR.

Desktop Preferences:

  • Distro: Debian GNU/Linux Unstable
  • Desktop: Gnome
  • Apps: Emacs, Evolution, Galeon, OpenOffice.org, Totem, X-Chat and XMMS
  • Web Daemons: Apache, mod_perl and MySQL.

I'm a gamer at heart and have bought Tribes 2 and Quake 3 from (the now deceased) Loki. I've purchased Neverwinter Nights (and soon the expansion pack too) because Bioware chose to support Linux with their titles (and they're Canadian too). I'm also a monthly subscriber to Transgaming's Winex project and am an FSF Associate Member.

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
