Life:

If anyone knows of a Free | Open Source software company looking for a senior (10+ years) C/Unix hacker with a myriad of software engineering talents and is willing to deal with telecommuting, please point them at my resume. If anything comes of it, I'll owe you lifelong friendship and a beer. Or two. Heck, a whole case.

Work:

I really wish OpenCASCADE had more fit and polish, and the ability to work with AutoCAD .DWG files. We are going ahead and licensing Solid Edge, but our joy at getting modern 3D MCAD software is rapidly being tempered, nay extinguished, as the bug-ridden nature of it becomes obvious. I know, it probably Serves Us Right for trying to run Serious Software on Windows 98, but sometimes one makes do with limited resources. :^(

Hacking:

miguel gave me the go-ahead to practice maintainership of gCAD since IƱigo seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. I've got a SourceForge project set up for it; I hope to have the web page transferred over and GNOME CVS updated this week.
