Welcome to the wonderful world of soofw. My name is John (aka scizzorz). I'm 20 years old and studying computer science at Binghamton University in New York, USA. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I like to tinker with stuff and make things. Occasionally I have some thoughts that I write about, but I'm pretty bad at consistently doing that. I also have a dinky little snippets page that has some small pieces of code I forget a lot.
I'm a fan of Android and Linux. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and a Google Nexus 7, both running CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies. My desktop is running Ubuntu 12.10 with LXDE / Openbox with two monitors and a mechanical keyboard, because mechanical keyboards are awesome. My desk is homemade and has a whiteboard embedded in the surface. I also have a Chromebook that I use when I'm out and about, and a Raspberry Pi for fun. I'm using GoDaddy's VPS hosting for most of my work (oh god the shame), but I'm slowly starting to transition over to the wonderful Linode services.
gnome-terminal on my desktop and Secure Shell on my Chromebook, both with a custom color scheme. I use
bash as my shell and
tmux to make it useful. For editing text of any sort, I use
vim. These days, I prefer to use Git for version control, but I used Subversion for a while before learning about Git. Likewise, I'm in the process of learning all sorts of Python things, but I used PHP for a lot of my stuff because it was super easy for a 14-year-old to pick up and learn. I've tinkered with Android app development, Arduino, woodworking (yes, with real wood!), etc., but a lot of my free time goes into web programming and scripting neat toys. I'm trying to make a lot of my code open source, so check out my GitHub page.
