My operating system of choice is Ubuntu, though I also dual-boot Windows. By profession, I am a software developer and I work with C++, Python, and (more recently) Go. I enjoy tinkering with different things like motion tracking in Blender, creating an Android app for time-lapse photography, or writing Linux kernel modules.

- 2buntu - community blog that I sometimes contribute to
- NitroShare - a cross-platform network file transfer utility
- REST Easy - Firefox add-on for analyzing HTTP responses

Why not just use the raw JSON returned from the API? Then it becomes trivial to update the list later on.

comment API docs for “stack overflow” still feature v1.0 docs
Note: site-specific domains (api.stackoverflow.com) only existed for v1.x of the API, so pointing them to v2.0 pages would be a little... inconsistent.

comment StackApplet — Bringing Stack Exchange Notifications to Your Desktop [Large scale rewrite in progress]
@Buscar웃: Unfortunately I do not have a Mac and therefore cannot make and test packages for OS X. However, if you have Python and PyGTK installed, there's no reason a Mac user couldn't download the source code and build it.

There's no OS X release but if you have Python and PyGTK installed, there's no reason you couldn't just run it directly from the source code.

comment StaQover, a new S-O. profile viewer in QML2
+1 Wow - it's nice to see a Qt5/QML app. I would strongly suggest looking into using version control for keeping track of the code. I host a number of my projects on GitHub and Launchpad.

That's odd. What version of Ubuntu are you using? What desktop environment are you running?

comment StackApplet — Bringing Stack Exchange Notifications to Your Desktop [Large scale rewrite in progress]
@Manishearth: Actually, the story gets a bit complicated here. The latest stable version (1.5.1) works just fine. The problem is that the latest version in the archives is 1.4 - which is old and broken. I'd love to get the latest version into the archives but it's something that a Debian maintainer has to do. I've talked to someone who said they would do it when they got a chance... but nothing's happened yet. In the meantime, you can install it from my PPA.
