I'm interested in computer graphics, algorithms, combinatorics, mathematics, and meta programming. Languages I use are Prolog, C++, Objective-C. I make graphics and educational applications.

comment Is it safe to cut throught a 70mm spruce beam with a Metabo jigsaw?
I must say I underestimated a lot the power of this Metabo jigsaw. I bought a 10 cm blade (~5€) and with the right settings, I almost didn't realize that I was cutting through the beam.

@Steven Interesting tool, I didn't know it. It looks powerful and not very accurate, as requested.

OK I'll have a try, do it slowly and let the jigsaw do its work. I cut one with a handsaw, but it was so wet that the blade could barely move after ~ 2 cm , and I had to reiterate the cut on each side.

@NiallC. OK I canceled my edit. As a non-native speaker I trusted the wording on Tester101's answer - which happens to be wrong..

I still have not tested but I like it. That's the kind of tool I had in mind.
