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

comment How about linking Stack Exchange to IFTTT?
After taking a good look at the IFTTT website, I have come to the conclusion that they have little or no intention of allowing third parties to write providers. Support for Stack Exchange would need to be implemented by the site developers.

I would strongly suggest upgrading to 1.5.1 which is the latest stable release. A lot of bugs were fixed in that release.

comment Algorithm for calculating filter
@BinoyBabu: There is nothing wrong with using the method in your application. The docs are just reminding you that filters are completely immutable and can be embedded in your application rather than generated with a call to /filter/create every time they are needed. They only need to be created once - they will continue to exist as long as you need them.

That sounds like a bug with the installer. I'll take a look into that when I get a chance - the 64-bit installer does install 64-bit executables though, regardless of where the files are installed.
