I'm a PhD student in biomathematics, working on stochastic individual-based models of evolution in spatially structured populations. My other interests include cryptography, programming games and puzzles, photography and graphic design.


I'm the main author and maintainer of the Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch (SOUP), a user script for browsers with GreaseMonkey-compatible user script support (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, possibly Safari) that fixes or works around a number of outstanding issues with the Stack Exchange user interface.

I tend to answer a lot more questions than I ask. Some answers I'm rather proud of:

CC-Zero 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.

Here's one feature you might consider: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/249679/… (There's no way that would get into SOUP, but as an optional feature...)

Thanks, no problem. :) Ps. I notice that there's already some overlap (e.g. this) between your script and SOUP, and I think I might want to steal a few more of the less controversial features (with appropriate credit, of course!). ;) That said, I think your script will make an excellent complement to SOUP (which doesn't come with a settings panel to toggle features, and so generally avoids anything controversial). You may have noticed that I've added a link to your script from the SOUP home page. :)

Sure, accepted. I can live with the alert, but I don't really see why it's necessary; the dialog closing already indicates that something happened, and generally when you click a "Save" button (BTW, shouldn't it say something like "Save settings" instead of "Submit"?), you'd assume it saved the settings. With the new persistent checkboxes, it's also easy enough to verify if you don't trust it.
