Math/Physics/Mech Eng major at vanderbilt university

I work at NRL (www.cmf.nrl.navy.mil) on kerberosV. In my spare time active in nlug, mountain biking, rails riding, and my radio show on www.wrvu.org.

Currently as far as free software goes I'm teaching a linux kernel hacking class for nlug, also I'm in charge of the w3m.org domain and making sure the patches to the code work. (just a fun little habit) I've sent patches to make mutt work with kerberos, patches to w3m to use libggi, a stupid psuedo perl/lk module hack (don't ask it's just too gross).

Also in the works is a bonobo gpg component.

Forgot to mention I can't spell... at all.

well it's been a long time since I've posted...

wlan-ng is a bag of rocks I have patches to make it work, but I can't set it to raw mode on my prism2 card to enable sniffing :)

xfs+lvm works super on the desktop but I'm running ext3 solely on my laptop now.

Sure wish every windowmanger out there didn't piss me off.

w3m now has a fricken cvs. I'm proud. Don't do -z9 or I'll hurt you. Really if anyone knows how to disable this tell me. And does anyone really understand badly written garbage collectors?

I really shouldn't like guiness as much as I do...
