Big Ball of Mud maintainer (mostly Java, C++, and SQL - Perl, Python, and JavaScript as necessary) currently living in Charlotte, NC. I also tutor Java, Python, and JavaScript part-time at Franklin University.

I blog about programming, math, learning, and technology at BillTheLizard.com.

You can follow me on Twitter, @lizardbill. (If I recognize you from SO or meta, I'll probably follow you back.) You can also find me on Google+ and on GitHub. (Questions about moderator actions on Stack Overflow should still be posted on Meta Stack Overflow.)

I also wrote @BountyBot, a Twitter bot that posts new and interesting bounty questions from Stack Overflow. You can view the source on GitHub.

@BrockAdams Yes, if a post stays on the site for 60 days or more and has a score of 3 or higher when it's deleted, you get to keep the reputation. meta.stackoverflow.com/a/124805/1288

@TimStone You might be on to something. I know I have a ton of answers on old deleted questions that probably were upvoted enough and stuck around long enough that the reputation was grandfathered.

comment A script that notifies you about posts related to you?
You could probably do this with a combination of search for profile links and /questions/{ids}/linked.

comment Looking for a beginner's tutorial to using the API
@RanjitPati That library is quite far out of date. There were a few others, but I don't know if any of them have been kept up. See the answers to Java wrapper for Stack Exchange.
