Tom X. Tobin
Hi! I’m Tom.
I do a mix of cat-parenting, computer programming, and weightlifting.
I’m also into board games, English usage, guns, and paleo eating.
I run a web technology consultancy: Silver Syntax LLC. I handle web development, Linux system administration, Node.js, and Python. I use open-source tools everywhere; even my laptop runs Linux.
I do most of the above while listening to an odd mix of music (futurepop, 80s, classic rock, and metal), all in a rural town near the NY/NJ/PA border.
I contribute to open-source projects on GitHub. Most of my contributions are improvements of other people’s work, but I have a few small projects of my own:
python-dis3 is a backport of Python 3.5’s
dismodule for Python 2.7.
python-seen is a simple container that tracks objects it’s “seen” before via membership testing. (In other words,
x in seen_containerreturns

vim-stayput is a Vim plugin that stops the cursor from moving for no reason whenever leaving Insert mode.
