Mathematician who is going deep into collaborations with commercial sector businesses. They have me working on different technologies and throw really interesting problems at me.

Love thinking too deeply about almost anything; sea turtle speed. Maybe I will manage to outrace the sail fish! lol

comment Cannot set up screen panning in Ubuntu with xRandR which states that it cannot find the modes
if my desktop is 1024x600 I cannot have a bigger screen that I can pan? So must I increase the desktop into a bigger panning mode? or is framebuffer some kind of different environment which can be made bigger?
