Hi! My name is Kyle, and I'm a 20 year old college student, studying software engineering.
In my spare time, I like to go rock climbing, make flowers out of wire, play sports, do some programming, play video games, or just hang around with friends. I spend a lot of time working in several artistic mediums, such as code, clay, paper, wire, plexiglass, paint, and paper/pen drawing. Sometimes I even like to work on this website (I know, unbelievable, right?)! As such, this site is always a work in progress. Sorry if it looks sloppy when you see it!
I am available pretty much everywhere on the internet, however most people would prefer to email me. If that doesn't work out for some reason, here are some other ways and places to contact me:
And hey, you could always join me in IRC at irc.esper.net#kellyirc! I'm there a lot too.
Vivio is an IRC bot that brings a lot of enhancements to an IRC channel. It can do simple things like calculate an expression (which can be rather complex), google a query, roll some dice for you, or check the weather.
This project was initially conceived several years ago when I wanted a framework for an IRC bot that could just do a lot of things (because doing things is tedious). I started it, and now I'm on the third revision, using the fantastic PircBotX library. It uses a lot of neat tricks like reflection (for fully dynamic loading of modules/function invocation) and a shell script that the bot can run to update itself.
Word Soup, or IdleMaster, is the ultimate idling game. And by ultimate, I mean I think it's more fantastic than IdleRPG (and not just because I made it!). It's highly entertaining (or so I'm told), features a lot of zany monsters, items, and all sorts of crazy events that happen moderately often. It's so fun, the bot even plays with the players! If you would like to join the madness, connect to irc.esper.net:6667#idlebot and join in!
For more information or some statistics on the players currently playing, and you can go here.
Around December 2010, I realized there was a huge gap in feature-filled IRC clients. I started planning kEllyIRC in response to this. I proposed the idea to a small group of people, and while they all seemed positive, only two decided to step up and help out the creation process.
