Jesse Millikan

Young, professional programmer without a college degree, from central Indiana. I ran into the wiki a few times over the last few years, and finally settled down and read a bunch of it. I contribute when I have something semi-relevant to add, which is almost never.If I've wondered into totally irrelevant territory, feel free to delete it...

Any jugglers on the wiki? I'm working on a little open pattern animator. Passing patterns (and the list of jugglers doing them) can be built as Scheme lists using some very high-level functions provided. It's beginning to be more of a pitiful animator with lots of juggling primitives than anything else.

I juggle on Sundays and Thursdays with the Circle City Jugglers (http://www.circlecityjugglers.com) if you ever want to hunt me down IRL. You may be forced to ride a RollaBolla? before challenging me to mortal combat.

I'm sort of an entrepreneur now! (http://www.weddingmusicproject.com not much there yet) Little 3-man thing that probably won't make money. Using NearlyFreeSpeech? for hosting, trying to find a blog platform that supports Sqlite (any suggestions?) and we're basically just obsessing over SEO while my dad makes music. Also, I'm a really questionable designer :) See above. Getting better fast. My colors of choice in web design are black, red and white, same as for juggling clubs, shirts, food packaging, and everything else. I'm such a great artist! As long as you don't want me to use blue because I will say no and find an adult.

I have contributed to EverythingTwo (as 'quamaretto') and WikiPedia, largely on programming matters. I participate in SphereOnlineJudge and GreatComputerLanguageShootout.

Also, I've started to see edits made under my name, so for the time being I'm going to un-set my UserName. (3/3/2008)

I'm highly excitable about ProgrammingLanguages and paradigms. By career, I do alot of CeeSharp and AspDotNet, with JavaScript and HTML and so forth. My worst vice is probably briefly screwing around with a language and never mastering any. At this point, I've messed around with (at least):

CeeLanguage, CeePlusPlus, PythonLanguage, RubyLanguage, PerlLanguage, SchemeLanguage, CommonLisp, JayLanguage, ToolCommandLanguage, SmalltalkLanguage, AplusLanguage, CeeSharp, JavaLanguage, OcamlLanguage, ErlangLanguage, AwkLanguage, DeeCee, WhitespaceLanguage, UnixShell, OzLanguage, AssemblyLanguage, JavaScript, VbScript, AutoLisp, EmacsLisp, VbClassic, SqlServer, and probably some things I'm forgetting.

ToDoList: I've started viewing at 5 inches wide with .2 inch margins for easier reading. I use the "Stylish" FireFox plugin with this CSS:
 @-moz-document url-prefix(http://c2.com) {
 div#wiki { max-width: 5in }
 body { padding: .2in }
 }
 @-moz-document url-prefix(http://www.c2.com) {
 div#wiki { max-width: 5in }
 body { padding: .2in }
 }

Hi, Jesse. Nice to see another Stylish user! You can simplify your c2 hack with the following. It takes care of both c2.com and www.c2.com, so that you DontRepeatYourself. It tried it just now:
 @-moz-document domain("c2.com") {
 div#wiki { max-width: 5in }
 body { padding: .2in }
 }
A nice alternative for readability is div#wiki { max-width: 30em }. This provides a line length of around 12 words no matter what the font size. -- ElizabethWiethoff

30em is exactly what I tried first! I decided that I wanted it to stay the same across font sizes and faces, for some reason, so I went with inches instead. Same result, since I never change font sizes.

Great minds think (almost) alike.
