    55=== About me
    7 I'm a Schemer from the Netherlands.  I love Scheme and think Chicken is pretty much the only Scheme that's usable in the real world because of the huge amount of eggs.  Chicken will take over the world!  (well, one can dream... :) )
     7I'm a Schemer and Chicken core developer from the Netherlands.
     9My ongoing core contributions mainly focus on keeping Irregex
     10up-to-date with the upstream version (of which I'm a co-maintainer),
     11squashing bugs (specialty: grilled macro-transformer) and the odd
     12security fix.
     14Besides core, I also maintain the following eggs:
     16* [[/eggref/4/postgresql|Postgresql]] - bindings to {{libpq}}.
     17* [[/eggref/4/spiffy|Spiffy the webserver]].
     18* [[/eggref/4/uri-generic|URI-generic]] (with [[ivan-raikov|Ivan Raikov]]) - parser for URI syntax as per RFC 3986.
     20I've written the following eggs:
     22* [[/eggref/4/9p|9p]] - 9p protocol implementation in pure Scheme.
     23* [[/eggref/4/colorize|Colorize]] - a port of the Lisppaste colorizing code (from Common Lisp).
     24* [[/eggref/4/crypt|Crypt]] - bindings for the UNIX crypt() C function, packaged with some fallback implementations.
     25* [[/eggref/4/efax|Efax]] - support for their fax gateway service.
     26* [[/eggref/4/epeg|Epeg]] bindings.
     27* [[/eggref/4/fancypants|Fancypants]] - a ligature and quote education library for SXML.
     28* [[/eggref/4/henrietta-cache|Henrietta-cache]] - a caching system for the [[/distributed-egg-repos|distributed egg repository]].
     29* [[/eggref/4/http-client|HTTP-client]] - high-level HTTP client library.
     30* [[/eggref/4/imlib2|Imlib2]] bindings (this has now passed into the capable hands of [[moritz-heidkamp|Moritz]]).
     31* [[/eggref/4/intarweb|Intarweb]] - a more convenient HTTP library (serves as the plumbing for Spiffy and Intarweb).
     32* [[/eggref/4/md5|md5]] - Scheme wrapper of a common MD5 C library.
     33* [[/eggref/4/phoghorn|Phoghorn]] - an image gallery library.
     34* [[/eggref/4/sha1|sha1]] - Scheme wrapper of a common SHA-1 C library.
     35* [[/eggref/4/smsmatrix|Smsmatrix]] - support for their SMS and fax gateway service.
     36* [[/eggref/4/ssql|ssql]] - "structured sql" (this too is now under [[moritz-heidkamp|Moritz]]'s care).
     37* [[/eggref/4/svn-egg-author|svn-egg-author]] - Helper scripts for making egg releases with Subversion.
     38* [[/eggref/4/sxml-fu|Sxml-fu]] - Some useful SXML procedures.
     39* [[/eggref/4/uri-common|URI-common]] - More convenient support for parsing specific URI syntax of common protocols like HTTP.
     40* [[/eggref/4/wmii|wmii]] - Scripting library for the wmii window manager.
     41* [[/eggref/4/qwiki|qwiki]] (with [[ivan-raikov|Ivan Raikov]]) - The wiki engine serving the page you're currently reading.
     42* [[/eggref/4/xml-rpc|XML-RPC]] - Support for the XML-RPC standard.
     44And occasionally, when I feel like it or when it's really needed, I work on the following eggs.  None of these are authored by me and I'm not the official maintainer of any here either:
     46* [[/eggref/4/defstruct|Defstruct]] - A convenient alternative to {{define-record}} (from Dorai Sitaram).
     47* [[/eggref/4/freetds|FreeTDS]] (with Peter Danenberg) - bindings for the FreeTDS library.
     48* [[/eggref/4/numbers|Numbers]] - Full numeric tower support.
     49* [[/eggref/4/prometheus|Prometheus]] - a prototype-based object system with a really cool name.
     50* [[/eggref/4/sendfile|Sendfile]] - send a file as quickly as possible from A to B.
     51* [[/eggref/4/svn-client|SVN-client]] - Bindings for libsvn.
     52* [[/eggref/4/sxml-transforms|Sxml-transforms]] - SXML transformations (from the SSAX project).
     53* [[/eggref/4/sxpath|Sxpath]] - Structured XPath selectors (also from the SSAX project).
    955=== Personal website
    11 My [[|Personal Website]] is currently under (not very much) construction. Of course it runs [[spiffy|Spiffy]] :)
     57I've set up a blog on my [[|Personal Website]]. Of course that's served with [[/egg/spiffy|Spiffy]] :)
