About + Contact
This is the personal site of Colin Murphy, a network administrator/IT guy from des moines, iowa. I am currently in college studying network administration, focusing on cisco networking as well as maintaining windows and linux servers. In my free time, I enjoy playing video games, watching tv shows and movies, and sometimes repairing computers and sometimes cars.
This website mostly serves as a place for me to keep and organize all of the notes that I have taken over the years. You can read them here. In the future I also plan on relaunching my personal blog, but that will come as time allows.
I am not much of a programmer, but I do have a few projects that I have created over the years. You can see them here. One of my biggest projects of the last few years was Pebble Commander, an application for the Pebble smartwatch that turns it into a remote control for your Linux PC.
