SIGPWNED is Andy Boothe’s personal website and blog. Welcome to it.
I’ll be using it for writing about lots of things: food,
Austin San Francisco, software development, personal projects, entrepreneurship. And probably some funny pictures of cats, too. Because the internet just doesn’t have enough.
Feel free to send any thoughts on the site my way via twitter at @sigpwned.
You know, I made a promise to myself that I would blog during the MSTC program to help me remember the process and the material they covered. That worked really well, until the choice came down to getting 4 hours of sleep, or writing a blog post. Based on my posting history for the last year and a half, I bet you can guess which one i chose.
Anyway! Internet, I’m back, and you’re not safe anywhere. Lots has happened in the last 18 months, and I’m looking forward to getting back on the old blogging bronco to talk about some of it.
After trolling on Reddit for a year, I finally signed up. (My user name is aboothe726, look me up and say “Hi.”) I’ve submitted my first link and it did really well. I think I’m addicted.
One of the reasons I waited so long to join was that I just didn’t think I had anything to add the Reddit community. When I was on Reddit this morning, though, I saw a story about Linux filesystem defragmentation with results that are really misleading and no one seemed to be talking about the right way to interpret the data, so I was inspired to start commenting. I was very encouraged when people responded positively to what I had to say.
