Don't fear to edit my posts: even if I have more reputation than you, I do make mistakes.

I'm now also a Moderator Pro Tempore (= until the first elections) at Cryptography Stack Exchange: feel free to come around and ask some cryptography questions.

My personal name is spoken as /ˈpawlo/ (IPA), in English this would be written similar to Powlo, I think (i.e. the vowels are ow and o), with an accent on the before-last syllable (which is the first in this case). It's the Esperanto form of my given name.

My current main private programming project is the game of fencing, an online abstract turn based strategy game. Implemented as a Java applet, using git as a version control system.

Please note that what you mentions as "countries" are actually cities nowadays.
comment Vigenere vs. Bellaso
I asked in history chat what they think, and will migrate tomorrow morning if there is no contrary opinion.

comment Why do minor political parties in the US receive so few votes?
I think with the "different candidate lists for each state" we get a bit nearer to the solution.
