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.

@Jack If I can find the time I'll update it, but I don't have any immediate plans to, so I don't know when that will be.

@Mat: Yeah, I've tested it with all the Trilogy sites, including Meta. It should work with any of the sites that have an active API route.

Is there any way to get a user's badges (the /user/badges route)? See this SO question: stackoverflow.com/questions/5091513/…

@rascher: Those will be in the MetadataList returned by the methods in StackWrapper. It looks like we made a mistake and didn't expose that data, because those methods return List, which you'll have to cast.
