I have worked on a large number of personal projects. This page shows them all off with screenshots, summaries and links.

About Me

As you probably already know, my name is Christopher Kyle Horton. I also often go by my traditional username Xyaneon.

I am a software developer. My current main interest is programming with .NET Core / .NET Standard.

I formerly attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and graduated with my Bachelor's of Science degree in Computer Science (with a Scientific Programming concentration) in December 2015 from Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI, and a Master's degree in Computer Science from the same university, with a concentration in Intelligent Systems, in May 2020.

About This Site

This is my hand-crafted personal website. You can read the full details about it in my Personal Projects page.

Bug Fixes

This is a list linking to some bugs I contributed fixes for in some others' open-source projects.


  • I made some documentation fixes for Frappe, although they're no longer listed on GitHub.


Ubuntu Accomplishments

I added several AskUbuntu badges to Ubuntu Accomplishments. Below is a list of my merged changes for the following badges:

This Website

You're reading it right now!

The inspiration to build this personal website came from a conversation I had with Dr. Elliot Solloway back when I was still at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) as a Computer Science/Engineering undergraduate student. He suggested that constructing a personal website by hand might be a good way to impress potential employers. I sat on the idea for a while until I got proper training in web technologies through my internship with Parjana Distribution, then found hosting in the form of GitHub Pages.

This site was constructed entirely by hand in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. You may view all of the source code in its GitHub repository at https://github.com/Xyaneon/Xyaneon.github.io.

EASy68K Chocolatey Packages

[EASy68K Website]
[Chocolatey Gallery page]

EASy68K is a 68000 assembly language IDE and simulator, used in my Fall 2014 Computer Architecture and Assembly Language class at Lawrence Technological University. It runs in Windows and Wine, and is open-source under the GNU GPLv2 license.

[gdipp Website]
[Chocolatey Gallery page]

gdipp provides better antialiasing for smoother desktop fonts, achieving a similar effect to the way text displays on the Mac OS X or many Linux desktops. It replaces the Windows font renderer with its own. It is a successor to the gdi++.dll project. 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Vista are officially supported. I like to use it on Windows to make me feel more at home, since I normally use Ubuntu or a derivative.

I am not a developer for either of these projects, but I was able to put together Chocolatey packages which can make them easier to install if you prefer using a package manager. Thus, I am the packages' maintainer, even though it does little more than tell PowerShell how to download and install it. Still, it's little conveniences like these that count.


GxSubOS screenshot

[Website] [GitHub] [Blog]

This is what is known as a "SubOS". I wrote this in Python 2.7 using the Pygame library.

The applications for GxSubOS are also written in Python, and are updated from GitHub repositories using Git.



A Google Drive automatic sync daemon I wrote which calls grive when changes in your Linux filesystem are detected. I wrote this mainly for two reasons:

  1. I wanted to teach myself how to write a Linux daemon.
  2. There is still no official Google Drive client for Linux, and there's no good free alternative available.

I still don't consider this software very stable. You're welcome to try it out, but I can't guarantee it won't try to burn your house down.

An artificial life / evolution simulator I wrote in GameMaker a while ago. It's computationally-heavy, but quite pretty and fun!

I even made a genome editor for this as a standalone application.
