Why am I a master? It must just be longevity I guess. Once upon a time, you might have classfied me as a journeyer maybe. But never a master. I expect something is broken somewhere.

As update: in the past 2 years I've done very little with free software or gimp (my free software project of choice). Before then it was occasional contributions as I felt the need or desire.

What I have done for "the community":

  • Been a semi-regular on #gimp
  • Made a #gimp themed magnetic fridge with javascript and CSS.
  • Occasional gimp tutorials, generally perl themed.
  • Failed in attempting to port gtk-perl to Gtk2, or gimp to use the new Gtk2 module.
  • Remembered my password to Advogato.

What I've done for me:

  • Got engaged.
  • Got a house, dog. See engaged.
  • Have a nifty car - Audi '00 S4. Fun at the track, and on the road.
  • Become much more familiar with lots of microprocessors, compiler guts, nifty ways of debugging embedded programs, language lawyering in C/C++, debugging on a variety of different embedded OSes (NOT linux of any flavor) and generally understanding development at a lower level than the general populous of programmers.
  • Got mentioned in Perl Development by Wrox press; a gimp-perl script of mine was modified for use in there.
  • Tried to keep learning new stuff on the piano. Monk is my facination of the moment, though I usually swap between Beethoven/Debussy/etc, pop stuff, and it.
Back to your regularly scheduled perusing.
