My name is Sam Trenholme. I have a Webpage. I also have a blog, not to mention a résumé. My résumé is formatted with 100% open source fonts: Bitstream Charter for the serif font and a modified Source Sans Pro for sans-serif (I use alternative forms for the “g” and “l” to make Source look like a more traditional sans).
I am not a regular editor; I probably edit about twice a month.
Back in the oughts, I wrote MaraDNS. MaraDNS is an open-source DNS server for Windows and UNIX clones that has been discussed in PhD dissertations, described as more secure than BIND against denial of service attacks in an IEEE symposium paper, recommended in an O’Reilly book, has an entire chapter devoted to it in a book about alternative DNS servers, is used by CERN, has been mentioned in a paper co-written by Ron Rivest, and was praised for being immune to the "Ghost Domain" bug . Here is how I would update the Wiki MaraDNS article
You know you’re a geek when:
- You watch The Big Bang Theory
- While watching The Big Bang Theory, you read the Wikipedia article on dibs when they mention it on the show (since you asked, it’s in the episode where Leonard buys the time machine). This isn't the only time they mention the Wikipedia, they also mention it in this episode when one of the characters points out they edit the Wikipedia because they have nothing to do at work.

(2006), Adequate System-Level Testing of Distributed Systems, Department of Computer Science, Boulder, CO (This was a PhD thesis) “MaraDNS, which is an open-source implementation of a recursive, caching Domain Name System (DNS) resolver. We experimented with public releases of MaraDNS, which consists of between 15,000 and 24,000 lines of code, depending on the version.” (also mentioned several other places in the dissertation).
