As might be obvious by now, this is a homepage for some person known as Phil Pennock. (Google+)
I've had websites; I've let people endure some truly awful pages. This site is bare and will probably remain fairly bare. It's probably still awful.
There are some small bits of software I've written which are available. I also contribute patches to various open-source projects. By far the greatest recipient of my time here is Exim.
I was a founding member of the Go Steel Programmers, a user-group for the Go programming language, in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. We later folded into the newer Code & Supply group for programmers in Pittsburgh (organizers of the Abstractions conference).
I am a mostly-emeritus maintainer of Exim and contributor to Zsh.

was used for past releases of Exim and announcements about Exim, until its replacement by

Google's changes to XMPP support mean that the gmail contact address no longer reliably passes XMPP messages, so the FP has been removed from the signed statement. I prefer to use true XMPP.
