I'm a software engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm on the Flow team. We are building the next discussion system for Wikipedia and sites like it.

In 2010, I earned my BS in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, where I was a research assistant with the Electronic Learning Communities lab.

Feel free to try out ProveIt, a tool we developed at ELC for Wikipedia reference management.

You can contact me here.

Note that I asked about passing it in, whereas you're embedding it in the script.

@MichaelHampton as a note, all versions of Debian older than Squeeze have reached end of life. Lenny is no longer covered by the security team.

@MichaelHampton, what distro and version are you on? They exist on Debian Wheezy.

comment Should my web server add trailing slashes to URLs or remove them?
Doesn't look like it. serverfault.com/questions doesn't redirect anywhere (I see it shortens it just for display purposes).
