I'm a passionate software engineering trying to understand it at a deeper level while working on my PhD at the CWI (Netherlands), where we try to improve the future using DSLs (checkout the Rascal - Meta Programming Language).

Languages I learned and still use: Rasal-MPL, C#, Java, Javascript, Ruby, C, C++, Matlab, LaTeX. (This list should be considered outdated when you're reading this ;-))

As a hobby I try to bridge our software to the physical world using arduino, read ebooks, and enjoy photography.

comment How to play AVI and MKV files in Windows Vista Media Center?
@Molly, regarding CCCP and 64bit, yes CCCP does not have 64bit filters. And while for this user it might not be the best answer, in general. Have problems: remove all the codec packs.. and install just the bare minimum.

The easiest would probably be CCCP, go to cccp-project.net/wiki/… and check the installation instructions. (Do remove the old stuff as they indicate)

comment Recommend me a good video format to encode my video
@Ryan thanks, I agreee, but sometimes your in a situation where you either want to batch encode a bunch of video's or a weird situation.. and then, ffmpeg/mencoder offers you the power :) but yeah, keep it simple use HandBrake.

comment 64 Bit Free Anti Virus
the reason you'd want a 64bit virus scanner is that else the activities of your 64bit process (such as explorer) would not be scanned...
