I like programming in Perl and C. I know Java and PHP too (I'm a MediaWiki developer), but I can't really say I like them. I keep meaning to learn Python some day, but never seem to get around to it.

I'm working on a Ph.D. in biomathematics. I also like programming puzzles and cryptography.

Please consider any (original) code I post to Stack Overflow (and other Stack Exchange sites) to be released under CC-Zero unless stated otherwise. You may do whatever you want with it and don't have to credit me in any way, although of course that would be nice.

comment Why do breathtaking views turn into “boring” photos, and how can I do better?
Those don't look like dark clouds to me -- in fact, I suspect they were thin and quite bright white, before the camera auto-exposure reduced them to a dull gray. But I agree that one thing these pictures definitely need is some tender loving care and exposure / saturation adjustment in a RAW converter.

comment How was this image where a person appears to lift a paved road created?
That's possible, but the vegetation changes make me suspect otherwise. Besides, if the road does end there, the driver of the car in the background is going to be rather surprised. (Also, the road surface has clearly been worn down by traffic, which seems unlikely if it's an unfinished dead end. I suppose the rest of the road could've been removed a long enough time ago for grass to cover the old roadbed -- which takes surprisingly long -- but then I'd expect to see other signs of abandonment, like plants starting to grow in the cracks.)

comment Should higher ISOs really be preferred (all other things being equal)?
@jrista: You know, there's probably enough useful information in your comments above for a pretty nice stand-alone answer...
