Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] New developer: Kacper Kowalik (Xarthisius)

1 Continuing my habit of sending new developer announcements way too late,
2 I'll introduce you to Kacper "Xarthisius" Kowalik from Torún, Poland
3 today. It's 11AM here and already 30°+ in my room, thus I can't seem to
4 think of some interesting introductory text, so here's just how he
5 describes himself:
7 "Currently, I am PhD student at Toruń Centre for Astronomy, NCU, Poland.
8 My research is related to planetary formations processes and mostly
9 based on what people call with awe/despise "number crunching", or
10 grid-based magnetohydrodynamical simulations to be exact. As a result I
11 crave for shear computing power, which recently brought me to GPGPU and
12 large clusters. Apart from PhD I work as small cluster (~40 cores +
13 GPUs) administrator @ TCfA which is unfortunately located 12km outside
14 of town, at TCfA Observatory (no one knows why, but we cannot move it...
15 that's the beauty of university's bureaucracy).
16 Remaining shreds of spare time I have are dedicated to my girlfriend and
17 casual life activities, i.e. when I am not at looking at any gentoo bugs
18 ;)".
20 Please do not give him a warm welcome, it's hot enough already anyway.
