Home / About

StackOverflow.org began as the merging of two ideas that have been kicking around in my head for years. First, I wanted a dorky programming-related domain name, and all the cool ones (things like void stars, null pointers, and segfaults) seemed to be taken, but I luckily stubled across this one in 2003. Second, I wanted a place where I could keep the information I tend to constantly look up on Google. It seems I am constantly needing to look up an obscure HTTP response code (Quick! What error code is "Forbidden?") or some rarely used MIME/Multipart header. I also have a number of configuration files and snippets of useful code, some of which is in my organizer, some on my laptop, and some on a system at work. One solution would have been to keep my files together and bookmark specs, then use synchronization software that will copy the bookmarks around between different browsers and different operating systems. This does not work when I sit down at a coworker's computer and need to figure out a positional function for an XPath statement.

So, without further adieu, I bring you the site that I use to collect these various specifications and files. I hope you find it as useful as I have.
