Once upon a time, this site hosted a variety of my programming projects. Nowadays, most of my projects are either commercial or too limited in scope to justify posting. I considered retiring Alloscomp, but I've made this domain name a part of both my online and offline identities. As such, I've decided to merely reorganize the home page. A copy of the original (2008) homepage can be found here.
A Bit About Me
I'm a 22-year-old Electrical Engineering student at the University of Cincinnati. I expect to graduate in 2014 with a BSEE, an MBA, and a minor in Mathematics. College has been a great experience for me, allowing me to grow and learn as an independent citizen of society. Lately, my time has been more and more dominated by school and work; when I have free time, I spend it exploring the campus, socializing with my friends, and finishing the ever-growing list of programs that I want to write. I also tutor undergraduate EE, CE, and CS students in introductory C++ programming classes. Though I'm not particularly skilled at any of these, I do enjoy skiing, cycling, and rock climbing. I've done some of my best thinking cycling around campus late at night.
I also have a Lauchpad profile. I'm not an active programmer with the Ubuntu project, but I use Debian and Ubuntu on most of my computers. The way I see it, once you know one Debian-based distribution, you know them all. I currently run Xubuntu on my main laptop because it's light, fast, and free. Also, once you've used Linux for programming, you can never go back!
If you need to contact me regarding the site, use the Contact page. If you need to contact me personally, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to send me secure, encrypted email or grant me access to a server, my GPG and SSH public keys can be found here.
Most of my programming time lately has been consumed by the ever-expanding Qugel project. I'm afraid that, due to an NDA and general business principles, I'll have to remain mysterious about what this project entails, except to say that it involves consumer product arbitrage.
