About Me

As you probably already know, my name is Christopher Kyle Horton. I also often go by my traditional username WarriorIng64. Nice to meet you!

About This Site

This is my hand-crafted personal website. You can read the full details about it in my Personal Projects page.

About My Family

I am currently still living with my mom, dad, younger brother and cat at the same house I've lived in my whole life up to this point. My mom is a seasonal tax preparer and accountant, and my dad is a metal model maker. My brother is currently an undergraduate at Michigan State University's Lyman Briggs honors college, studying microbiology.

My Interests

I am first and foremost a Linux user, primarily Ubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME and elementary OS. None of my personal machines run Windows anymore and I've never owned any Apple products.

I program a wide variety of side projects in my spare time. Outside of programming, I am also fond of riding my bicycle around the suburb I live in and teaching myself Esperanto at lernu.net. I also play a lot with my cat; she loves attention!

My Résumé

My résumé is no longer directly available online. Please email me to request a copy if you are a prospective employer, along with information about your company and what made you interested in me. Thank you!

This Website

You're reading it right now!

The inspiration to build this personal website came from a conversation I had with Dr. Elliot Solloway back when I was still at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) as a Computer Science/Engineering undergraduate student. He suggested that constructing a personal website by hand might be a good way to impress potential employers. I sat on the idea for a while until I got proper training in web technologies through my internship with Parjana Distribution, then found hosting in the form of GitHub Pages.

This site was constructed entirely by hand in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. You may view all of the source code in its GitHub repository at https://github.com/WarriorIng64/WarriorIng64.github.io.

The background image is an image I made myself using Inkscape. It is based on a wallpaper I made called Azure Wave, the SVG version of which may be downloaded from GNOME-Look by clicking its image below:

EASy68K Chocolatey Package

[EASy68K Website] [Chocolatey Gallery page]

EASy68K is a 68000 assembly language IDE and simulator, used in my Fall 2014 Computer Architecture and Assembly Language class at Lawrence Technological University. It runs in Windows and Wine, and is open-source under the GNU GPLv2 license.

I am not an EASy68K developer, but I was able to put together a Chocolatey package which can make it easier to install if you prefer using a package manager. Thus, I am the package's maintainer, even though it does little more than tell PowerShell how to download and install it. Still, it's little conveniences like these that count.

GxSubOS

[Website] [GitHub] [Blog]

This is what is known as a "SubOS". I wrote this in Python 2.7 using the Pygame library.

The applications for GxSubOS are also written in Python, and are updated from GitHub repositories using Git.

grive-daemon

[GitHub]

A Google Drive automatic sync daemon I wrote which calls grive when changes in your Linux filesystem are detected. I wrote this mainly for two reasons:

  1. I wanted to teach myself how to write a Linux daemon.
  2. There is still no official Google Drive client for Linux, and there's no good free alternative available.

I still don't consider this software very stable. You're welcome to try it out, but I can't guarantee it won't try to burn your house down.

MyKarotes

[Website] [Google+ Page]

An artificial life / evolution simulator I wrote in GameMaker a while ago. It's computationally-heavy, but quite pretty and fun!

I even made a genome editor for this as a standalone application.
