I think the first thing you might notice about my web pages is that they're
rather simple. Well, for a person that spent two years as a "webmaster",
flash animation, PHP scripting, or the like on my pages. In most
cases, I'd love to. However, I don't have the time to learn most
of these things, let alone the creativity to put them to use. My
role as webmaster was in the "pioneer" days of the internet - 1995-1997.
"Hey!" you say, "wasn't that before Al Gore invented the Internet?"
In truth, I was an something of an internet pioneer. While I worked for Penn
State University's York Campus, I got plenty
of experience in using the Internet and with TCP/IP in general. For
2 years, I was the campus's LAN administrator. Actually, we had 3
LANs - 1 Token-Ring (bleah!), and 2 ethernet (thin-net). This was
from late 1986 through 1989! I learned on 3Com's Ethershare, and
then 3+Share (the fore-runner to 3+Open, which later was renamed Microsoft
Lan Manager when 3Com sold out of the NOS market). I also learned
Banyan ViNeS on that horrid Token-Ring. Banyan was way ahead of the
curve with their software, and it was a shame they eventually failed.
What they had in 1987 with global directories and server integration was
still better than where Microsoft is today!
Anyway, I don't yet have much yet to publish here. I will
not publish personal stuff, such as where I live, my phone number, email
address etc, because I get enough spam already - all types. However,
my interests are another matter.
And just what is it I'm interested in?
Well, cars for one. And what guy can say he's not? Anyway,
I'll need to devote an entire page to
Continuing with the "guy" theme, I can't leave out my firearms collection.
For obvious 'security' reasons (my own), I won't publish the specifics
on this web site. My friends know what I have, and that's really
all that needs to know.
Science Fiction. I watch movies, TV, read books, and collect various
things related to those movies and TV shows. Years ago, I started
collecting the new Star Trek Next Generation toys that were coming out.
Over the years, that collection grew to be rather massive.
