Carsten Pfeiffer

A Short Intro

  • Located in: Berlin, Germany
  • Occupation: I'm studying Computer Science at the Technical University of Berlin
  • Nickname on IRC: Gis
  • Claim to Fame: KuickShow (still KDE1 only, but a new release is coming up, promised), large parts of klipper, a good chunk of the KDE file dialog, some things in Konqueror (the history and completion for example) and I was one of the kISDN authors. Oh, and the System Notifications control module.
  • Fav. KDE applications: I really enjoy Konqueror, mostly for web browsing. KNode for reading News. I love ksirc for its simplicity (the GUI, not the code :}). And I like noatun, the new Media player for its extendibility with plugins. For university, KLyX has helped me a lot.
  • Hardware: Some self-assembled box with all kinds of things in it - every single slot is used and Windows had a hard time with resource management. I had to disable a serial port to get the ISDN card working :} No problem with Linux of course. The CPU is an AMD K6-2 500 and I've got 128 megs.
