I have been absent from Wikipedia essentially since 2007, not for lack of alternative procrastination.
I am an observant Jew living in Sydney, Australia, studying at the University of Sydney, messing my way through a B.Sc./B.A.. I am likely to major in Computer Science (interested in computational linguistics), Linguistics and Classical Hebrew. I have plenty of other committments, so Wikipedia just comes as a procrastination tool- and it is very effective at its job, too. See also my web site.
My interests are many, so maybe once I've consolidated a list, I'll write about them. I think most areas of my knowledge that will come into use on Wikipedia, though, are in relation to Judaism/Israel, particularly focussing on Zionism and Zionist history, modern Israel, Hebrew and Israeli linguistics, etc.
If I really feel like spending lots of time in the Wikipedia world, I monitor the recent changes with CryptoDerk's Vandal Fighter and deliberate on the day's always-stunning collection of AFDs (see my afd helper script).
I have also been working on scripts to make Wikipedia nicer to use and moderate, and am a member of WikiProject User scripts.
On other wikis
Tools, complex templates, etc
Done with for now
|What a Brilliant Idea Barnstar|
|Thanks for making such a useful tool (AfD Helper)! I used to comment on AfD's a lot, but quit because it took forever. Now, I can comment on more AfD's in less time! Thank you again! NF24(radio me!Editor review) 15:43, 6 November 2007 (UTC)|
