Currently working as a software developer, supporting bioinformatics.

Two beautiful things in Unix:

  1. Pipelines, and
  2. The pattern-action mechanism of awk.

Scripts I'm using daily when answering questions on the Unix & Linux site:

  • Shell toolbox: provides a shell command that creates a "temporary shell" in a disposable directory and clean environment. Useful for testing things.

I'm a Dvorak keyboard user, but generally a nice guy, really.
