I registered this domain several years ago (2003, I believe) after having run a personal website on another domain – blind-guardian.org (maintained as a fan-site of the heavy metal group). I wanted something a bit more professional, a bit more personal, and something that fit ‘me’. Since I’m a geek, kcore.org seemed a natural fit ;)
The name itself is derived from the /proc/kcore file which can be found in e.g. GNU/Linux systems. It is a virtual file, representing the RAM the kernel can allocate.
Back in 2003 I wrote a custom CMS for this site – with the high hopes of one day distributing this CMS to a wider public. That day never came, life happened, and updating content was a royal pain. Not much moved on the site, but a blog was born next to it, on which I published my ramblings.
I’ve now decided to merge the (old) content of the site into the blog, and put this as my main page. It makes much more sense in the long run – easier to maintain, easier to update.
