About meI am a high-performance computing software engineer.

Don't look for my Top 500 here :)

I am a lowercase-l libertarian.

I am against coercion and dogmatic world views, both religious and scientistic.

I am against coercive psychiatry, but not against voluntary psychiatry. I am not a Scientologist.

I am an atheist, but I am not scientistic.

I think facts and values are good to separate in discourse, since it may help people clarify their values without degenerating into arguments over "facts", but that facts ultimately derive from the values of the people who agree on them.

I consider nearly all human behavior a choice, but that doesn't mean it is necessarily right or wrong for any particular circumstance (e.g. addiction or homosexuality being a choice does not imply it is wrong or needs to be changed).

About my librarySee this thread.

LibraryThing is broken if we cannot import masses of books by uploading files with tab-separated predefined columns.

The excuse is that it's only one format, and it won't match everyone's, but one import file format is better than none at all.

I can reformat mine in any way necessary, by using awk or perl.

Only ISBNs can be uploaded in bulk now. I cannot even provide tags or images with my ISBNs. Entering them manually would be too slow.

For now, ReaderWare is better for managing my own work. I'm simply including this to share part of my collection.
