I'm a CS major at Stanford University, currently employed at Eazel. Computers aren't my only life...I also enjoy philosophy, sound engineering, writing, cycling, and singing (though I suck). I'm mostly hacking on Nautilus and GnomeVFS, with some Tadpole (a seEkReT proJeKT) work on the side.
Particular interests regard formal logic (as it relates to computing), HCI, and general architecture issues.

It just feels like the time to write a diary entry. I have now been awake for 37 hours, and am going to go to bed immediately after finishing this entry. Yes...I swear it. In the interim since the last entry I have basically taken over making Nautilus/GnomeVFS/Ammonite/OAF/Medusa/etc work properly on Solaris. This was dropped into my lap for Nautilus 1.0 as something critical like 2 weeks before release, so I have been working like mad on rather prosaic porting issues (and some interesting ones too).
Added bazillions of mime types to the Nautilus mime type database too. Whee. Exciting weekend, I know.
-eek- This graphics assignment is proving harder than I had
anticipated. I budgeted it one day of work...it looks more
like we're looking at two+. This is bad because I also have
a philosophy paper due imminently (in addition to my regular
slew of problem sets!).
I've been working more with GTK+ lately...because that seems like a good thing for a GNOME programmer to be fluent with ;-) Honestly its really easy working with something like Nautilus to ignore massive areas of code beacuse somebody else really will do them. Also working with Bonobo.
Am thinking about playing with starting an IDE based on Jade. Jade is a kickass editor similar to emacs written by John Harper (of Sawfish fame). Jade has the advantage that it is bound very nicely with GTK+ through rep-gtk. Great. So we have a nice editor written in a functional language...and it binds to GTK+. What an opportunity :)
No really! I've missed programming in functional languages, though I have to honestly admit to having more imperitive experience at this point....ah well.

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.
