I like programming in Perl and C. I know Java and PHP too (I'm a MediaWiki developer), but I can't really say I like them. I keep meaning to learn Python some day, but never seem to get around to it.

I'm working on a Ph.D. in biomathematics. I also like programming puzzles and cryptography.

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.

comment Phishing alert but file never existed
How sure are you about the "never" part? If I were trying to be a sneaky phisher, I'd only keep my pages up for a day or two before deleting every trace of them I could.

Just to confirm, when you tried to change your password in cPanel, it didn't ask for your old password?

comment MediaWiki sitemap generator
@trancuong: If your webhost really doesn't give you access to a shell or to cron jobs, you could try installing the Maintenance Shell extension which lets you run MediaWiki maintenance scripts from a special page on your wiki.

comment 301 redirect to different directory on Yahoo Small Business Hosting without .htaccess
@w3d: That looks like an answer to me.

...and in any case, using robots.txt to disallow the old URLs would mean that search engines will not see the redirects and won't know that the pages have moved. Generally that would be a bad idea.

comment Multiple URL's going to same page - Kosher for Google?
+1 for mentioning rel=canonical and breadcrumb microdata, even if I don't really like the alarmist tone.

comment 301 redirects in main navigation menu of WordPress website - is this okay for SEO?
@GDav: That .85 would be a pretty huge drop, if true. Any sources for that?

comment Separate Mediawiki Theme for Its Front Page
BeforePageDisplay might be a little late to change the skin. I'd suggest RequestContextCreateSkin instead.

comment How do I see what pages on the internet link to my site?
Um, it isn't (and I don't really feel it should be, given than turning what used to be a normal question into CW is not something that should be done lightly). The only thing that's CW here so far is danlefree's answer.

Ps. @paulmorriss: Is there any way (short of re-posting) to have this answer reassigned to me, or should I just let it stay attributed to you?
