I regularly visit Stack Exchange to help out people with their questions and help maintain the community. Located in Belgium, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Antwerp.

When I think a post can be improved I will try to do so by fixing grammatical or spelling errors, clarifying meaning without changing it, correcting minor mistakes, adding related resources or links. For the less obvious things of those I will leave a note in the edit, click on the date to see this.

I will only edit content in posts once, and let the author or other users be free to choose to rollback; when there are opposing views, we can raise this to meta to let the majority decide which revision of the post they want.

This will be done with respect of the original author and when I'm sure enough that it would only improve the post, if you need to contact me then you can e-mail me at the following address:

Or if you have enough reputation, try to send me a message with @TomWij on the Super User Chat where I am usually when I am online.

Have a nice day! :)

comment Where can I find an algorithm for creating 3D anaglyphs using a depth map image?
Welcome to Stack Exchange! Could you provide a bit more than just a link? What page the algorithm and it's explanation are on? The PDF also seems quite heavy (so not accessible for every visiting user) and there is no guarantee that it will be available in the near future.

comment Tabs versus spaces—what is the proper indentation character for everything, in every situation, ever?
@MaR: Where did I state 'equivalent number of spaces'? I've tried all those, tabs work perfectly in them!

revised Tabs versus spaces—what is the proper indentation character for everything, in every situation, ever?
Removed a sentence that looked like a fact but is rather based on opinion.

comment Tabs versus spaces—what is the proper indentation character for everything, in every situation, ever?
A tab is always one indentation so it isn't different along environments, while with spaces you have a variable amount. Would you rather like a document with 1 space indentations or with 8 space indentations? Oh, seems I sometimes typed some other amount of spaces by accident...

comment Tabs versus spaces—what is the proper indentation character for everything, in every situation, ever?
@MaR: Noticable mistakes is true, the width of a tab is larger. Also... Python! Tabs are consistent as a single Tab is an indentation, while you otherwise have to define how many spaces you will use for an indentation. Customization is an advantage. You are using tabs in the first place, so it's more productive. Seems you can't even give a good reasoning why it is impractical, haters gonna hate... ;)
