Off of stack Exchange, I enjoy making music and listening to music 24/7. I also like rock climbing and video games.

On Stack Exchange, I greatly enjoy using the worst possible language for the task. That's why I've written two different languages:

  • V, a golfing variant of vim that's only good at manipulating strings, but can do a bunch of other stuff if you have the patience.

  • Brain-flak, a turing tarpit where simple tasks are obscenely difficult, and the only valid code is balanced brackets.

If you ever need me for something, feel free to ping me in The Nineteenth Byte, I'm basically in that room constantly. Or you can email me at DJMcMayhem[at]gmail[dot]com.
