I'm a PhD student in biomathematics, working on stochastic individual-based models of evolution in spatially structured populations. My other interests include cryptography, programming games and puzzles, photography and graphic design.

I'm the main author and maintainer of the Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch (SOUP), a user script for browsers with GreaseMonkey-compatible user script support (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, possibly Safari) that fixes or works around a number of outstanding issues with the Stack Exchange user interface.

I tend to answer a lot more questions than I ask. Some answers I'm rather proud of:

CC-Zero Please consider any (original) code I post to Stack Overflow and other Stack Exchange sites to be released under CC-Zero unless stated otherwise. You may do whatever you want with it and don't have to credit me in any way, although of course that would be nice.

The link in your answer seems to be broken. Here's an archived copy at archive.org.

comment Do strong Go players play simuls, like in chess? Do they ever play blindfolded?
@Tomas: Certainly. The players are blindfolded, but there's no requirement that the audience is. (In fact, at least in an amateur game, it's pretty useful to have at least one person present who can see the board and make sure all moves are legal.)

I'm pretty sure that blind go is a thing. In fact, I've watched my amateur friends play it, although they used a pretty small board.

revised Does heroic trigger when the creature is in a graveyard?
I have no idea why the original Disentomb link shows a card with German text, but using [mtg:] links seems to fix it
