I'm a web developer currently living in Santiago, Chile. I'm always trying to improve my skills. I earn my daily bread on PHP / (My|PostGre)SQL / JavaScript development, working with CakePHP, PrototypeJS, Script.aculo.us and jQuery, but I'm also experimenting with Django. I'm interested in many areas of programming and in learning new programming languages.

I'm also a budding roleplayer and GM. I have mastered 4E DND for a year and a half now, and love the job.

atomicity? I don't really know if the mv command is atomic, though.

If you really must, you could use a different browser to open 'funny' webpages.

comment Is there a consensus on keyboard shortcuts?
Hard to fault them, though: usually they've been using those keystrokes for years before Windows was even planned.

comment Is there a consensus on keyboard shortcuts?
...At least on Windows. Though Linux desktop environments are following those conventions at least to a degree, you'll find that many programs on Unix do strange things -or nothing at all- on Control C / V / S

comment Ubuntu Linux: Can I paste plain text by default?
@Nathan: your analogy is faulty. You don't want formatting, but I'm not sure that most people copying text to a rich text Office program share your view. It's not so much 'hold the chocolate sauce' as 'hold the ketchup on those fries' (I really don't like ketchup)

comment Is it ethical to spoof registration forms on websites?
You work on a most strange definition of ethics, if you think that because everyone lies, it makes it ethical to lie. Mind you, I don't mean that you aren't right about some of your other assertions, but that first couple of sentences is just wrong.

comment how to set the mouse speed very low on ubuntu
Does changing the settings actually affect it? Do you notice the mouse going slower after changing them, or does it not work at all?
