Hello all, you've stumbled upon my member page at the IEEE-CS. I will post links here to tech articles I find interesting, and mention projects that I am working on.

I use GNU Emacs for primarily all of my development, while the learning curve is high for new users, the power that you get from the plugins and keybindings makes it irreplaceable. Unlike more graphically orientated IDE's, Emacs can make an insane amount of functions, settings, and features available to the user via commands i.e.

M-x highlight-regexp

and not clutter up the UI. There are plugins for even lesser used programming languages like Standard ML, which will come in handy for certain classes at UWM. You can also write new functions using elisp, and find plugins using the built in package manager (and also set custom repositories).

For my operating system, I use GNU/Linux exclusively. I've sort of settled on Debian GNU/Linux, but that doesn't mean that I'll never think about switching to another distro, even after 13 years of using GNU/Linux. I just cannot stand Microsoft Windows because:
- and this is not an exhaustive list -

For these reasons and more, I stay away from Windows where I can, at least on my personal equipment. This may seem strange to some people, but it works really well for me.

That's all for now.
