I was one of the two people (Eddy L O Jansson being the other) who reverse-engineered Cyber Patrol 4 and was sued by its publishers for alleged copyright infringement in what has become known as the "cphack" case. I wrote the Twofish implementation used in GNU Privacy Guard (http://www.gnupg.org/) and contributed some English usage corrections to the documentation and code comments. While employed by the Canadian Federal government, I wrote a lot of Prolog code for a freeware AI remote-sensing automation system called SEIDAM (http://www.aft.pfc.forestry.ca/). Less well-known free software projects I am currently involved with include Kosmos Online (http://kosmosonline.sourceforge.net/) and Four-Play (http://www.four-play.org/, but it's not online yet). Past free software projects include the Pteria BBS package, minor patches to the Parse::RecDescent Perl module, and some bug fixes for the US Geological Survey's geospatial metadata software. I've written a patch for POV-Ray 3.1 to make it do tileable textures, but haven't been able to get in contact with the POV team for it to be added to the distribution yet. I'm working on some speed enhancements for the "less" pager.

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.
