About that GNU+Linux Guy

About Me


My name is David McMackins.

I'm a free/libre software developer. I program in C, Python (3), Lua, C++, and Java. I also have exposure to Scheme, Emacs Lisp, Vala, Pascal, and Prolog. Most of my important work will be done under the name Delwink, a software development company dedicated to creating quality software which respects your freedom. Check it out over at delwink.com. You may also find my personal code on GitHub.

[FSF Associate Member]

I used to be an associate member of the Free Software Foundation, and I'm still an activist in the free software community. I frequently send e-mails to the people I subscribe and listen to across the Internet both to inform and learn about the ideals and advantages of free software. If you'd like to know how I became interested in free software, click here. If you'd like to join the FSF, please click my member number above to give me credit for referring you.

I spend a lot of my time working and interacting with the Jupiter Broadcasting community. A good deal of my free time is spent in their Mumble lobby.

How I do computing

I currently run Debian GNU/Linux as my primary operating system. This server runs Debian GNU/Linux 8 "Jessie" on an OVH VPS.

My personal computer runs Debian GNU/Linux Sid (rolling release) using the GNOME 3 desktop environment. I mostly use Emacs for programming.

I don't use Facebook for reasons you can find here. I do have a Twitter account that I barely use: @TheMcMackins. You can find me on Quitter, @2mac.
