Hello! My alias is voidxor. I joined Wikipedia in 2005 and have made several hundred edits each year since.

Etymology of voidxor

If you are a computer programmer, you may have already noticed that voidxor is a concatenation of the programming terms void and XOR.

Originally, I had planned to use voidxorsub as my alias. A function that returns nothing (this is called a subprocedure in Visual Basic) must be declared void in C, C++, and C# or sub in Visual Basic. Since XOR represents the exclusive-or logic gate, placing it between void and sub indicates that one or the other would be used to declare a function that returns nothing, but never both terms.

Each computer programming term in voidxorsub denotes a piece of my programming knowledge:

Because voidxorsub is annoyingly long for an internet alias, I ultimately decided to go with voidxor.

Education

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering and a Master of Science degree in electrical engineering, both from the University of Kansas.
