Personal Website

Welcome. You have reached the personal website of Patrick A. Simmons, M.S.

I am a computer scientist with specializations in compilers, dynamic memory allocation, and low-level security, and until recently worked as a Lecturer at Georgia College. My GitHub page is here. You may view my CV here. My Linked-In page is here.

If you want my maps of the United States for Garmin GPS devices that combine OpenStreetMap data with street address information from the US Census Bureau, go here and download all the .img files starting with "us-". You can leave out any regions of the country you don't plan to travel to, but I recommend getting them all just in case. You don't need to download texas.img if you download us-south.img because Texas is included in the us-south region. After downloading, copy all the .img files to a directory called "Map" on a MicroSD card, put said MicroSD card in your Garmin GPS, change the settings to disable any older built-in maps of the US your device may have come with, and you should be good to go.

If you are looking for the XMPP web chat client for all CS classes I teach, it is here.

If you are a CSCI1000 student, homework start file generation sub-site is here.

If you are a CSCI1301 student, Robot-Poet-Warlord sub-site is here. The link to the homework test sub-site is only available on GeorgiaVIEW for security reasons.

If you are looking for Loop-Amnesia, please visit here. Some humor also included ...but seriously, be careful.

Batman mode for the Linux bonding network device driver is here. The patch should be applied against Linux 4.0.4. It may apply to later revisions as well, but this is untested.

PALLOC2 is here. If you want it under a different license, email me at this address, explain your intended use, and I will reply.
