In my years working as a programmer, I have run into many, many bugs and introduced many of my own. A few stand out as tremendously irritating to debug, as their behavior made little sense and the source of the bug was non-obvious. The first issue was from my work for the HTCondor Project, an open source cluster management software used by research groups around the world including those working on crunching data from the Large Hadron Collider, the LIGO graviton detector, and the IceCube neutrino observatory.
"How may I help?". This is maybe, and thankfully, one of the most frequently asked questions in these 4, 5(?) years that I've been into the project. And maybe one of the most difficult questions to be answered by the ReactOS "Team".
If you're reading this post it could be by 3 different reasons:
Despite my involvement with the project for several years, I do not believe I have ever actually introduced myself. While the developers and a few other members of the community know about me, in general the rest of the community knows me as the guy that writes the newsletters and sometimes posts snarky comments on the forum whenever I see something that I think is a bad idea. As such, this might be a good time to introduce myself and provide some background.
