Hi, I'm Kevin Galligan. This is where I keep my software and writing stuff. I like to write about technology, programming, books, maths, and whatever else takes my fancy.
I was a software developer for 3 years, working on Java web services. Now I'm back in college, where I do research on coding theory and the occasional bit of Buzzword Learning (BL™).
Q: How can I contact you?
A: email@example.com or Twitter. I like receiving emails!
Q: Does your stuff have a license?
Q: Why does this website look like it was beaten with a lead pipe, lit on fire, and run over by an 18-wheeler truck?
A: See for yourself.
Q: What software do you use?
A: Linux Mint (it just works), Python (for research), C++ (for pain), Common Lisp (for pleasure), vim (text editing, still discovering all the tricks), tmux (terminal tabs), Emacs (for Common Lisp programming), Firefox (I like privacy), Thunderbird (email and RSS).
Q: Why doesn't your blog have comments?
A: It's easier to maintain a static site. All I have to do is upload the files to GitHub Pages and they're magically available to the world. Some day, I might set up a server to host comments, but until then I'll delegate that job to news aggregator sites.
Q: Do you spy on me?
A: Nope. I removed Google Analytics in order to preserve your privacy. You're welcome.
Q: What's the story with the icon?
A: I needed an icon and drew something vaguely inspired by the Game of Life. It now seems cold and impersonal, but what can you do. Here it is, animated as a Game of Life state.
