It Begins

First posts are hard to write so I'll do what I do best: talk about myself. I'm Scott Peterson. I attend New York University and my birthday is coming up soon (April 23rd). I enjoy whole milk and correcting people's grammar (but not their spelling).

Here is a picture of me eating a taco:


Now that we're acquainted, let's to 't. This blog chronicles my Google Summer of Code project to port Banshee to Windows. I may also occasionally post about my other OSS/Mono exploits. For example, I just finished a brainfuck compiler for the CLI (.NET & Mono). It is called brainfucker. It is written in C# and uses the fantastic Mono.Cecil library (cred to JB Evain). It also has a Gtk interface, if that's your thing.

Well, that's all for now. This is surely the beginning of something magnificent. I feel it in my bones!

Good luck! I will gladly be a tester whenever you need one.

Awesome, welcome to the community! I look forward to running Banshee on Windows.

Also, I hope all SoC students will follow your bold lead and share with us pictures of them eating tacos. :)

I can't wait for this to be done. Once finished, someone could look into making a portable version.

Just promise me you won't use any brainfuck code in your porting efforts ;) I know it compiles to CIL, but please think of the children, won't someone think of the children!!

Are you wearing toe nail polish?

Welcome aboard, either way.

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately, I am not wearing toenail polish. Maybe I dropped a bit of taco on my foot.

Good luck with this project. I have started a winforms project based on the banshee code. I hope you can use some of the stuff i had done to help eg. CD Audio, Media Engine and MassStorage DAP. I would gladly help and test where i can. Enjoy!
