Tagline
Pinoy (Perl|Java{,Script}) Hacker. Recovering Sysadmin. Cat Herder.
Introduction
There isn't anyone else called Zak Elep in this world, so I'm pretty sure you found the only one ;)

I write Perl hacks for a new startup while trying to maintain some CPAN modules, and in the not-so-distant past, I spent my days being a BOFH at an IT crowd, and gave a guiding hand to the local Ubuntu community.  When not doing that, I can be found playing games on the laptop and 3DS, and I also sometimes build Gundam models, when I have a lot of free time and the mood to do so.

Bragging rights
Been into Google Summer of Code 2006. Recently seen talking about Ubuntu in ANC's Future Perfect.

Announcements  - 
 
Philippine Emacs Users' Group had its first meetup last Wednesday:

https://www.facebook.com/events/729492017153864/?active_tab=posts

It was just a simple get-together of some 6 people, I talked a bit about some ways to set up customizing emacs (from .emacs to .emacs.d/init.el and using stuff like use-package, git submodules, and previewing tarsius_' borg,) while Karlo Licudine talked about his experience of using Emacs (having started just a few months ago, and on Window for Haxe programming to boot!)

We'll definitely have a next meetup this July!
1st ever Emacs meetup! Bring your ~/.emacs.d ! * Topics - The many ways of ~/.emacs.d - Custom show-and-tell - What else you guys bring (and time allowing!) About the Venue. Mozilla Community Space Manila. Community Organization. Mozilla Community Space Manila's photo.

"docker" functionality implemented in 100 lines of bash, very nice hack.  Shows just how powerful btrfs is, along with the 'ip' tool.

I gave a talk on editing JavaScript with Emacs last night: https://www.facebook.com/events/765455226922029/

Here's my slides (actually an OrgMode init file!) Of course, its not exhaustive (it was mainly derived from my own personal ~/.emacs.d .) Feel free to check it out and improve on it!

Could a IBM mainframe from the 1960s mine Bitcoin? The idea seemed crazy, so I decided to find out. I implemented the Bitcoin hash algorithm in assembly code for the IBM 1401 and tested it on a working vintage mainframe. It t...
