Who is MonkeeSage?[edit]

MonkeeSage was once used for NASA testing

My nickname is derived from the fact that I like monkeys and I consider myself a sage, in a sense (viz., I like reading and learning and discussing issues).

My interests are philosophy, theology, writing, photography and art.

That's about it! Feel free to leave me a message on my talk page.


A Curse Upon Vandals[edit]

Here is an ancient Germanic curse upon wiki-vandals, which I just made up:

Die Flöhe auf Zehntausend verärgerten Kamels läuft innen Ihrer Unterwäsche!


The Fifty-Third Calypso[edit]

Oh, a sleeping drunkard
Up in Central Park,
And a lion-hunter
In the jungle dark,
And a Chinese dentist,
And a British queen—
All fit together
In the same machine.
Nice, nice, very nice;
Nice, nice, very nice;
Nice, nice very nice—
So many different people
In the same device.

Kurt Vonnegut, "[Bokonon's] Fifty-third Calypso", in Cat's Cradle, p. 2.


Lawn mowing machine[edit]

I love visiting with Grandma and Grandpa, and writing letters to parents, and pushing lawn mowing machine so Grandpa’s hyena don’t get disturbed.

Programming and Scripting Skills[edit]

I am a fairly proficient HTML/XHTML/XML/XUL/CSS user. Same with JavaScript, perl, Ruby, Python, C# and PHP. I've recently been playing with D, and learning Haskell and O'Caml (Haskell is fun). Most recently my favorite tinker-toy is Vala--which is a preprocessor that turns a language with almost the exact same syntax and semantics as C# 2.0, into standard C code using GLib / GObject for its object system, and produces native binaries.


Free / Open-Source Projects I've Contributed To[edit]

  • K-Meleon web browser (minor backend bug-fixes and updates, chrome and extension hacking).
  • Mozilla Firefox (created 8 or so 3rd-party browser extensions, io.js module featured on XULPlanet.com).
  • Last-Exit (some aesthetic patches and added playing /remaining time display).
  • Mono (couple of patches for BackgroundWorker).
  • Others I may have forgotten about.
