After all these years, it's hard to believe that
I still haven't put up much of a personal web site. And there's no
grand design here. Just a random sprinkling
of personal information. One Day it will be complete
and perfectly organized, just like the rest of my life. Some
who know me actually believe that I do no, that I simply
lead a completely orderly life (but if you believe that you
couldn't know me all that well). So, for those among you, I have transmogrified myself
to that place and time, that "One Day," to bring you a
preview of the point
of perfection. (And to think it's come to this
after all the time I've been trying to transcend myself.)
I am now trying to update the following bits
in a little less random fashion. Such that, when new items are added
substantial changes made to an entry), they are placed at the top
here. So, you can more easily find new things without having to plow
through all the old stuff. Enjoy!

a fresh, sophisticated design. And a recent photo from her high school

You should really check out
this site I did for my sister,
the mad dollmaker. The 3-d
model of Amanda is extra fun. Now I'm working on a similar
site to showcase the inspiring printmaking
of Aunt Elaine.
I'm very proud of my
daughter, Sera, a dedicated scholar (but she's always changing
her web site so you never know what you'll find there).
OK, there actually is web-evidence of some
of my computer work of recent years. From the days of Jump Development

years was the work of Cris
Then there was Forward
(that I think was originally Scott
Johnson's idea, and he's been paying for it ever since). I also
did some design and graphical user interface (GUI) work for Webmedx

of the Java GUI by pressing their "Start

knew and loved, here's a brief bio.
