Susam
Susam Pal /suːsʌm pal/ is an open source developer. He has been a contributor to Superior Lisp Interaction Mode for Vim (SLIMV). He also maintains Emacs4CL, a tiny quick starter .emacs to quickly set up vanilla Emacs for Common Lisp programming.

He began teaching himself Common Lisp using GNU CLISP 2.41 on Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 (Etch) at an airport during a long layover in 2007. Since then he has moved on to other implementations and uses SBCL primarily these days but keeps an instance of GNU CLISP around for nostalgia's sake. For others like him for whom the GNU CLISP welcome banner brings warm memories, here is a snapshot of it from version 2.41:

$ clisp
  i i i i i i i       ooooo    o        ooooooo   ooooo   ooooo
  I I I I I I I      8     8   8           8     8     o  8    8
  I  \ `+' /  I      8         8           8     8        8    8
   \  `-+-'  /       8         8           8      ooooo   8oooo
    `-__|__-'        8         8           8           8  8
        |            8     o   8           8     o     8  8
