davidgow.net: Greetings!

It's Commander Keen

Hi! I'm David Gow, known sometimes as sulix, and this domain (with its rather unimaginative name) is mine. I'm a Software Engineer by trade, having played around at various points with the MySQL server codebase, the Linux kernel, and porting and QA for Linux games.

I'm originally from Perth, Western Australia and I oscillate between living there, and in Mountain View, California.

I'm always happy to answer any questions people have about Linux games or programming in general, so always feel free to email me at david@davidgow.net.

Some stuff I've done

A Commander Keen Reimplementation
Handmade Penguin
A game porting tutorial based on Handmade Hero
A symbol-version wrapper for gcc and glibc
An extractor for To the Moon's datafiles
