Experimental nuclear and particle physicist. These days I'm teaching, but I've spent a lot of time on nucleon structure in fixed target electron scattering and neutrino oscillations using reactors and beam sources.

Graffiti and the like get to use info about timing and stylus pressure which are not preserved when working from a scanned document.

comment Is there a way to compile from source and keep track of updates automatically?
Many of which will allow you to build package from source if you want. This is Gentoo's big selling point, and you can do it on Debian too. Not linux, but on Macs fink also supports this.
