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 How can I get SVN to recognize Mac Bundles as ASCII instead of Binary Streams?
You can use 'keynote-to-text' to diff keynote files. It integrates with GitHub smoothly: github.com/robertoaloi/keynote-to-text

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...

Also, I added the whole set-faces block. Maybe that can help.

comment Aquamacs overrides my custom-set-faces options
Thanks for this. I updated the question with some comments. Also, I tried to (add-hook 'term-setup-hook (lambda () MY_OLD_CODE )) but it didn't help (assuming this was the way it was supposed to be used - I suck at Lisp).
