About

My name is Kevin and I write and support the software found here, and I own the domain and created/manage this website.

Hobbies include computers, computer programming (started back around 1984 on the infamous Commodore 64 and moved on to Windows programming around 1995 or 1996), Excel VBA programming, music, drums & bass, riding my motorcycle, and Arduino-type gadgets.

On a side note, I also came up with the hiccup cure found on this website.  I discovered it years ago (after an unusually long round of hiccups) and it was added to this website as an afterthought back in late 2004 while trying to think of new content to add.  I’m humbled that it has helped so many people get rid of their hiccups.

What is “cognitial”?

After having written a couple different applications for Windows prior to 2002 and primarily distributing them through AOL, I wanted to have my own website and give myself a better “company name” for my programming adventures.  Back then I think I was using KevSoft or KMD Software or something like that.  Anyway, I chose Cognitial as sort of a play on the word “cognition“.
