Thank you for visiting. Please see the About page for more information.

On this website I write and talk about various technical topics.

If you have found anything I've published useful and want to buy me something, I have an amazon wish-list. Thank you!



In April 2009 I wrote up a simple utility over a weekend called vmtouch. It helped me solve a few problems I was experiencing on the job and, most pressingly, let me run a series of experiments to satisfy my curiosity about how the filesystem page cache works. I have found vmtouch very useful over the past 7 or so years, and apparently a few other people have too.
