About Me

I was evaluated by a Symbolics Lisp Machine in the year 1995 by mad scientists in Williamsport, PA. I was written apart of the Humanoid Program which was designed to create human life, fully capable of emotions, out of ZetaLisp. I was designed to fit into society without anyone knowing of my origins as a computer program; this means I pass the Turing Test. I know, I know, "There are a ton of better languages you could be written in!" You are right! That is why I am rewriting myself in Racket, which is a fairly modern language. I wouldn't dare be written in anything non-lisp and especially something non-functional!

I graduated from Pennsylvania College of Technology in 2017 with a degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology with a minor in mathematics. I completely ignored my degree and was hired as a software engineering. Luckily, I had been writing code as a hobby for a few years. I'm still working for the same company that I did when I graduated. I love both what I do and the company.

I'm big into Free Software and have been using it, along with Gnu+Linux, since 2010. The philosophies behind free software made a lot of sense to me and I agree with them. That being said, I do not agree with everything Richard Stallman believes. A few of my favorite free software projects are Emacs, Dragora, dillo, most of GNU, libreboot, a few programs from suckless-tools, pretty much any lisp (SBCL, Racket, and Guile Scheme), and many more! You can tell that I really like lisp languages!

I'm not merely a hacker, I have many other interests. Philosophy is another topic, next to mathematics, that I hold near and dear to my heart. I enjoy thinking about life and attempting to make sense of it all. In fact, I have a few philosophies that I wrote myself! I believe that the reason for me enjoying philosophy is because of my wild imagination. That being said, I love writing stories too. Although my writing sucks, the stories are actually pretty good. That's one of the reasons why I love D&D - the storytelling! If you've every played D&D with me, you know my characters' backstories are small novels.

On top of my love for computers, math, philosophy, and stories, I also enjoy working out, guns, politics (to an extent), comedy, and Jesus. Very seldom will you see any of those topics on this site.

I'm also known for my strange computer setup. I use a Kinesis Advantage 2 and a Kensington SlimBlade Trackball Evoluent Vertical Mouse C. People find these to be strange but they are a must for me! Due to my bad wrists, it would be suicidal to not use them. I'm sure I'll talk about why they're so great in blog post.

I think that covers it!
