Hi, my name is Danilo and I was born in Vitória da Conquista (map), northeast Brazil. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Electrical Engineering at Brasília University (map). Now I'm a doctoral student in Computer Science at State University of Campinas (map). My research area is Elliptic Curve Cryptography.

Besides cryptography, my main interests are GNU/Linux OS, stargazing, photography, bricolage, biking, hang gliding and Rocket Arena.


I apologize if something on this (little) page doesn't look right in Microsoft® Internet Explorer (MSIE). I don't use MSIE and only eventually have the opportunity to test my page on it. As far as I can, I try to make my page standards complaint according to W3C's XHTML and CSS.

I use and recommend Mozilla Firefox since it supports W3C's standards better, features improved security, is open source and runs on many platforms: GNU/Linux, BSD, Mac OS X and even Windows :-D


Ask Apple to support Ogg Vorbis in iPod

Ogg Vorbis is an open, patent-free, professional audio encoding and streaming technology. Apple's iPod is a leader in portable audio players and it's too bad it doesn't support Ogg Vorbis. If you like Open Standards and Open Source, consider sending feedback to Apple. Just write "Please support Ogg Vorbis audio in iPod" here. I did.

For further information, see Open Letter to Apple: Ogg For Us, Please by Gizmodo and getting started with Ogg.
