I prefer programming, using and administrating Linux. I am a proud Haifux. I am one of Hamakor's founding members. I used to be on the board during 2005-2006, but I am not even a member anymore.

Once, I used to be a bookworm. Nowadays, I am a bookcrosser. I also keep a book wishlist. I arrange book crossing events in Linux and free software events which I participate in organizing. For that purpose, I wrote a Hebrew Book Crossing Invitation. All this activity is sometimes covered in the newspapers. An article about bookcrossing was published in Yedioth.


I participated in the play "Caramba's Revenge", by the Haifa English Theatre as Ronnie. PR pics and some more.


I am interested in game theory, and especially in aspects of game theory regarding scheduling of clusters.


My father is from Tunis, and my mother's parents are from Polland. I started collecting our traditional Tunis Recipes to go with that.


The current ruler of the house is Maud, found on September 11th, 2002, aged about 3 months. She is pretty stupid and a bit crippled. But she comes right away when she is called or whistled, especially if she is outside. She is very conversational, which is a trait of Siamese cats.
