Any similarity between my page, JeffreyElkner's page, and MatthewGallagher's page is because they used mine and as a template.

My handle for pretty much the entire internet is maco. Variations are macoafi or macogw if the site requires 6 letters, but maco usually means me.

I'm a junior at GWU in Washington, DC. I'm a Computer Science major with a concentration on computer security and information assurance. If anyone who happens to be reading this is from GW or somewhere in DC, say hi.

Governance

I'm an op in a handful of Ubuntu channels (listed above), an Ubuntu Forums moderator, and on the Americas Regional Membership Board.

Memberships

I became an Ubuntu Member in October 2007. If you're working on your wiki page to become one yourself, here's a look at one mine looked like at the time: clicky link

I became a MOTU in November 2009. Here's what my application looked like: clicky link

What's next? I'll apply for the ~kubuntu-dev team before 11.04 is released.

Tech Stuff

Programming

Java, C, Python, GTK+, PyKDE

Code/Patches

Adding minimum speed, maximum speed, and acceleration to GSynaptics was my first patch. It's not in the (very old) version 0.9.5 that's in Hardy, though. I packaged up 0.9.14 to take care of it for Hardy. It is in Intrepid.

Bug #215729 was the first bug I helped fix.

First kernel patch: http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/2/13/346

Currently working on...

Add an option for a gradient background in gnome-panel ... nevermind. GNOME's replacing gnome-panel anyway so it's no use Sad :(

Gally, a program to teach sign language, built on the KDE4 Platform
