I am now a grad student at the University of Ottawa. I recently graduated with a Master's in Computer science from the University of Ottawa, after earning an Honors Bachelor of Science with double majors in Computer Science and Logic and a minor in Math from the University of Toronto. Most of my Saturday nights are spent writing hobby code (right now, my fascination is with Genetic Algorithms) - which speaks to the lack of my social life.

I love to learn new things. Paradoxically, don't enjoy reading more than 10 pages per new topic (much to my disappointment). I have therefore developed an ability to speed read - something that the readability and speed read it bookmarklets have helped with.

Author of Pyvolytion in the python package index (which I talked about at PyConCA, 2012 and published it in the IEEE), co-author of cfg in the python package index.

I can be found on Twitter, Google+, Careers 2.0, and LinkedIn

comment Customizing LyX Shortcuts
@Rasmus: ctrl+f is mapped to char-forward, which I never use. Deleting it and remapping float-insert algorithm to ctrl+f a got me exactly what I needed. If you consolidate the comments into an answer, I would gladly accept and give you the rep

@Rasmus: dialog-show findreplace is mapped to cmd+shift+f. Remapping float-insert algorithm to control+alt+shift a makes it work. Mapping math-insert \forall to control+alt+shift+m a also works. I wonder why the control+f family of commands doesn't work. Thoughts?

@Rasmus: I tried editing the shortcuts in the preferences like you said - the changes didn't take. I updated to LyX 2.1.1. The new shortcuts were still there. Yet, they didn't work. Any thoughts?

@Rasmus: I have had trouble finding the right shortcut itself, in the GUI (Some are menu shortcuts that don't appear in Tools > Preferences > ... . Further, every time I update my installation, I would lose my custom shortcuts.

comment How to restrict tables under same section
For any lost souls looking for other types of floats: this usage of placeins works just as well for figure-floats as well. I therefore suspect that this should work for all types of floats - not just table floats
