A mechanical engineer who has dabbled in Perl, MATLAB and LabVIEW.

My programming experience thus far includes solving sparse-matrix heat transfer problems, parsing and processing data files, and coding a generic neural-network Perl program from scratch.

Current fields of interest include data mining with Perl and parallel-processing with GPUs.

@msw : That's my current workaround, but it's still quite laggy in vimdiff mode.
