Born in Mar del Plata, Bs As, Argentina. My dad was working two jobs- teaching grad physics and chemistry - and working for Dupont in a third world country when he brought home a TI86 and then a C64- I don't know how he did it. Maybe the 14hr+ work days.
We lived around- moved to Brasil, then when I was 10 we moved to Virginia.

College in Richmond VA, Boston MA- pursuing fine arts. Helped teach some graphic design etc courses at Tufts and the SMFA.

Worked doing websites for myself, friends, art people, musicians.. and then I realized what I could do with computers had some use.

Today I work in Maryland for a small accouting firm, only.. I don't do accounting. I do some document archiving and access control stuff.

My dream is to develop an open source forensics grade document sniffing system. I have some demos running.. I keep trying to rework a propper one. This is hard.. How do you do ocr on 30 gigs of documents when they keep changing content, filename, etc ??? I LOVE THE PROBLEMS

  • An analogy, is when you tell a story - a parallel. "I once saw a bunny write a poem".
  • A simily, "your code is like shit".
  • A metaphor, "your code is shit".
  • Rhetorical question, "is your code shit?"

[mr_mischief]: I remember buying retail a RedHat Linux 5.2 book with CD, and later a Mandrake 7 or 8 box set with all the commercial-only add-ons. Same thing with Caldera 2.3, cardboard box and all. These days I can mirror whole repos faster than that trip to the store.
[erix]: yeah. it's been some time since I last built a (linux) kernel but perl takes less than 30s and postgresql less than 2 minutes minutes :)
[talexb]: Yep .. came across SuSE 6.2 in my storage locker recently. How old is that.
[erix]: 2001 :)
[erix]: (I have the wp pages open :))
