I'm a lifelong programmer and comp-sci enthusiast. I really enjoy automating things that can be automated, and in general feel that humans shouldn't have to do things that robots can do unless they really want to.

I also really enjoy making music and studying up on neuroscience.

comment libkeybinder error Arch linux
lib32-libx11 could possibly be a dependency, but that would be odd. There are, however, multiple AUR packages for libkeybinder, the library you said was failing. Is the one you're trying to install the one I linked to? If so, please post the full output from a clean attempt at building via makepkg -- use makepkg -s | curl -F 'sprunge=<-' http://sprunge.us if you need a paste service.

comment using git for media libraries
There isn't one. It's git-annex or use an appropriate tool, as far as I know. It's difficult to do because it's not the type of thing that git is meant for, so people tend to use something else, and the few people who really want or need to use git in that manner are few and far between.

comment How can I run my python program directly from the shell?
It may be worth noting that it can still be named main.py as long as it's symlinked to internetScanner somewhere in $PATH.

comment Linux: Use NVIDIA and ATI cards in the same computer
I'm afraid that the last time I had to do this was a long time ago. These days, xrandr or disper generally do what I want. That xorg.conf is long, long gone, sorry.

comment gitweb alternative for simply hosting source code
Sure, I can see that. Github also has private repos, although they cost a (minimal) amount of money if you just need a few.

comment gitweb alternative for simply hosting source code
Mercurial is a source-control system, similar to git. Gitweb is for browsing source code in a web browser. Does mercurial allow you to display source with syntax highlighting out of the box?
