Mmmm, pizza. 
I'm called magicman here, but my real name is Joeri van Eekelen and I'm from The Netherlands.

I'm 28 years old and currently being a programmer at an awesome research institute in Amsterdam.

I have recently started playing and developing D-Mods again, though I'm not sure how long that will last. I also like sourcediving into the Dink engine, which is an awesome way at figuring out why some unexpected behaviour occurs.

Scripting techniques rant
Some Notepad++ Python scripts
Error in map_tile(); documentation.
Why void touch( void ) freezes, void die( void ) fails to complete, and you need wait(1) in loops.
About external(), spawn(), procedure calls, run_script_by_number.

For those interested, you can read my Dinkerview from early 2014.

For a comparison between all kinds of browsers, check this article at Wikipedia. Do with the information what you want to do (e.g. read, agree, disagree, ignore, print out and eat it, worship it, edit it away):

Comparison of web browsers.

It might not solve the endless browser wars and by no means I intend to prove that Firefox is better than Opera or vice versa, but just to give some actual test results and facts rather than a vague reference like "most computer experts say that FF is the most secure browsers, according to their rigorous tests". I mean, 'most computer expers' can technically mean 50.0001% of them. Also just "their rigorous tests" cannot be verified.
At first: who exactly are those computer experts? Are they the keepers of some PC shop in Middle-Of-Nowhere-City, are they programmers of Firefox or Opera, naturally biased, or are they people who work for Norton at the firewall department?
Secondly, how rigorous are these tests? When is a test called rigorous?

These are things that might be true, but cannot be verified. One person might find a test 'rigorous' and call someone a 'computer expert', while someone else disagrees. Then who's right?
