I'm interested in programming language design, compilers, computer graphics, robotics, video games, and other stuff. Programming languages I use on a regular basis include Python, Java and C++. I'm also a fan of Scheme, and I'm currently learning Haskell, Clojure and Scala.

More info available at my Google Profile.

comment How do I banish the “You have just inserted an Audio CD.” dialog forever?
I haven't tested (yet), but why would opening a settings dialog and then dismissing it without changing anything cause the behavior to change?

I went there and "Do Nothing" was already selected for CD Audio, DVD Video, Music Player, Photos and "Other Media/audio DVD".

And as if to taunt me, now when the dialog appears "Do Nothing" is selected and "Always perform this action" is already checked! Where's the "What part of 'Always' don't you understand?" button?

comment Where's kprinter in Lucid?
That's actually the thread that made me aware of gtklp's existence. That thread is from 2004, so it predates Lucid by quite a bit. The two alternatives to kprinter it mentions aren't as nice (though gtklp is much nicer than xpp).

I should have mentioned that I tried that. The error I got was: "Package kdeprint is not available, but is referred to by another package."

I'm using Ubuntu. I mostly use Gnome, but I use a few random KDE apps.
