I work at Knewton, where we're working to revolutionize how kids and adults of all ages learn. Previously, I founded the Kiln distributed source control system. In my free time, I program in Python and in Pharo, an open-source, cross-platform Smalltalk dialect. You can browse most of my code at my GitHub and Bitbucket accounts.

comment Default PowerShell to emitting UTF-8 instead of UTF-16?
I don't think $OutputEncoding is quite what I need; that's set to ASCII in PowerShell, and affects how things are displayed. What I want to do is to change the format of text that's saved in a file, which (AFAICT) is different than what $OutputEncoding controls.

comment How can I automatically mount a network drive in Snow Leopard?
I have two possible concerns with that: it won't unmount when I log out, unless I'm missing something; and it'll fail if it's already mounted due to not logging out. Is there an easy way to prevent those two issues?

comment How can I show the Emacs menu in GUI emacs frames but not in tty frames when using emacs daemon mode
While I agree that this question is appropriate to SuperUser, I think you might have better luck on StackOverflow. Unfortunately, the SO crowd may punt it back here.
