256th Generalist badge. It really should be gold :)


I love AI, psychology, spirituality, philosophy, mathematics, food, art, brain teasers, board games, and telling people they're doing it wrong.

I love music - Bjork, Patrick Wolf, Radiohead, The Knife, The Decemberists, Squarepusher, Dalek, The Smashing Pumpkins, Lemon Demon, MF Doom, Blonde Redhead, David Bowie, Stone Temple Pilots, Battles - I love music. Grooveshark is my friend :)

I am a Strange Loop.
Wound like there's no tomorrow.
I forget there is.


I have written a whole bunch of automation for all sorts of programming tasks (CI, deployment infrastructure, code generation, test case generation, test lab/deployment automation infrastructure, and a whole boat load of automated E2E, integration, and unit tests).

I've programmed mostly in C# for the last 7 years, though occasionally in a myriad of other tongues (C++, C, JavaScript, VB.Net, Java, batch scripts, Lua, Lisp, various DSLs and Python).

I've done a bunch of web programming lately, though I also like API design, and I like programming desktop applications and Windows daemons even better. As boring as desktop apps and services may sound, they're easy to write, and have a nice robust feel to them, much like crunchy peanut butter.

I dig Open Source Software.

@paradroid: I didn't know that since I haven't used it in a while :) Can you post this as an answer, and provide some extra details as to what it enables? If you do, and it gives good info, I will accept it.

Awesome answer :) Thanks! I'm going to wait to accept it so maybe the question/your answer gets some more traffic (I think it works that way?)

@harrymc: and if you read superuser.com/about, it absolutely is intended as a blog. Not that I used it in that manner

comment Getting console2 to work nicely with UAC
@harrymc: which part of my usage do you disagree with? "How do I get this working? Would I have to modify source code to get this to work, or can I use different tab settings/do hacks w/ shell executables?" is the question. The answer I gave is what I found out while searching myself, which as harry says, is a valid usage of the site.
