I think the problem is that you didn't start a new thread by writing
a new email, you hit reply to another message, so everyone's mail
client filed your new message as a reply (due to the following headers):

Anyway, I've been a developer of the greenstone digital library/text
indexing software, written a program that works with cheap dick smith
electronics webcams that don't otherwise work under linux (since they
lack the hardware to convert the raw image formats to a decent
format), and submitted bug fixes and patches to several packages.

I also have a bunch of programs that I've been meaning to make publicly
available if I ever find time to tidy them up, and one day I might
release the software I developed for my thesis (for doing recognition
of scanned sheet music).
