About MeHi, I’m Rob McColl. I’m interested in large-scale web applications, practical applied cryptographic systems, high performance computing architectures, parallel computing, exascale computing, and HPC applications (specifically graph theory apps). I live in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood of Atlanta with my beautiful and intelligent wife Jean (she's the one on the right) and our mischievous little Westie Baxter (he's the one in all the Instagram photos). I like music, movies, TV, photography, programming, games, dogs, the outdoors, and jogging when I get around to it.

Ran the Rebecca Mountain 50 Miler Saturday. It was a hoot! Finished feeling great in 11:10 in the top half of the pack. It was cool and misty most of the day and sunny and warm toward the evening. Chatted with some old and new friends. Mostly managed nutrition, hydration, and electrolytes really well. Got through the aid stations pretty quickly. Had a great time! The race was well-organized and all of the volunteers and other runners were awesome. Next up I’ll be back here in November to try my luck at the Pinhoti 100. I mean, it’s just 50 miles twice right? #rebeccamountain50 #pinhotitrailseries

#latergram of last week’s amazing family vacation to #thegrandhotel in Fair Hope. Thanks @mark_mccoll! It’s always a fun time traveling anywhere with this crew, but the beautiful scenery and delicious food and drinks added to the experience.
COVID jail is no fun, but the food is good. Thanks for taking care of me @jeanmccoll ! Also, if you can not get COVID, don’t. It’s not much fun. And try not to give it to anyone else.
Roads with speed limits greater than 55 mph shouldn’t have stoplights. via Twitter https://twitter.com/robmccoll August 19, 2022 at 04:57PM
I hope our paradigms, tooling, and languages will someday make programming faster and less redundant. https://t.co/Fnz5EFbgix https://t.co/m3IevjoaiU via Twitter https://twitter.com/robmccoll August 17, 2022 at 11:05PM
Second Baby Dragon 40 miler in the books. 12:40 , 41.5 miles, 11k elevation gain. About an hour and twenty faster than last year. Good company, good weather, awesome support, too many yellow jackets. Still the hardest course I’ve ever run. There’s a fun long day to be had out there. #hardassevents #h9 #duncanridgetrail
@gutsrunning #Hot2Trot! I got 41ish miles in 8 hours and somehow snuck into 3rd place male? That was a shock – there were some strong runners out there today and also me. Got lucky with some shade and a breeze early on, plenty hot later. Anyway, here are some of the worst pictures ever taken of me. 📸: Me
