I started developing software on a small Casio basic calculator in 1987. I graduated to C, then C++ and finally Java. Although I work daily with Java I have a wide base of experience in a lot of other languages and technologies as well. Reading my blog will give you a good idea of some of the more recent trails I've explored.

I have created a few Stack Exchange related projects:

You can find some of my work other places as well:

comment Can we have some sort of notification system?
This is what pubsubhubbub is for. I imagine the answer will be no because of complexity. I would rather just have a firehose with every change in it.

Added a link to the source on github, added a link to the google group support page, change the title a little to reflect the new functionality.

@Pulse Can you tell me the version of firefox you are using? This could be a tough one to track down. It may also help if we move the conversation over to the support group that I set up here groups.google.com/group/swatch-support

@Pulse I think I need to know exactly what you are entering as your name. My guess is that something isn't being encoded correctly and I need to fix that. Can you give me an example of what user name you are entering that gives you that error? Can you try searching for something like "Jon" and tell me if that breaks as well?

@Pulse are you getting that when you try to find your id on stack overflow or one of the other sites? Can you tell me exactly what you typed into the search field?

@systempuntoout I'll add an optional ding if I can. @espo I'll make it an option.
