Hacker Dan the Character
Hacker Dan is believed to be one of the CompSci Gods and holds the power for the Book of Typos AKA The Old Dictionary of Dan. It is rummered that he got his cyborgo face in a battle with Bill Gates and his M$ Pirates, though on the upside, it seems to give him more powers like shooting laser beams out his cyborg eye.
The next verson of CompSci.ca.
The DWITE judge and front end need to be updated and more features added.
Dead or Done
Python game server and client framework. Still in eraly devlopment.

CompSci.ca themed RPG or MMORPG
Making a online RPG game based on the charitchers in the comic.compsci.ca site and the users of compsci.ca.
Currently i am working on the art for such a project.
I am one of the administrators of CompSci.ca and DWITE.ca. I have been runing and maintaining it for about 5~6 years (too lazy to look it up right now) and running DWITE (with Tony) for 2~3 years. I am very intrested in computer security matters, networking, open source software devlopment and most computer scinece realted topics. As you can probably see from this profile, my spelling is not the best, but if you have a problem with this, there are many other sites on the net you can go to that will match your spelling needs.
Ever notice Hacker Dan's spelling? Seems a bit off? Well that's only beacuse it is not English he speaks, rather Hacker Danish, a mystical language known only to a select few. The only documents relating to this language known to be in existance are the Old Dictionary of Dan and the New Dictionary of Dan. Unfortunately the Old book was lost due to a dimensional rift serveral 1000 years ago. The New book is an attempt to reconstruct the old. More info can be found on Hacker Danish and the Books on the Dictionary of Dan page.
