Because of my academic career, I’m interested in software engineering, human - computer interaction, user interfaces, graphics, databases, web applications and more.

As the final thesis for my Bachelor's degree, I implemented a garbage collector for a Java Virtual Machine (named Juice) targeted to embedded systems with real time requirements. As the final thesis for my Master's degree, I designed an access control mechanism for the Content Management System Joomla (www.joomla.org). It was successfully used for an e-learning solution.

I spent my last years discovering the Erlang language and getting addicted to it.

comment Is there a keyboard shortcut to switch between the most visited and apps screens?
@techie007, I'm referring about the new page, released yesterday. That question is from one year ago, referring to an old version of Chrome. That's why I asked the question again. The "new tab" page has been completely redesigned.

Ah! Sorry about that, I completely missed the top field and was focusing on the main window...

comment Which ffmpeg options does ffmpegx use behind the scenes?
thanks for this. I know I can get more information by clicking on the "i" symbol. Still that doesn't give the "exact" ffmpeg command which is used. For example, in the above screen, I would have loved to see the -s option for the frame_size or the other ffmpeg options used to get that specific bitrate. Did it set the -minrate and -maxrate to 246? Is it using a variable bit rate? And so on...

I was running this on an EC2 small image. Using a bigger image helped.
