This site is less a particular new thing, but rather a combination of the various webspaces I have had stitched together over many years. The blog I ported over from the University of Minnesota blog server, and many of the other pages I salvaged from the Tripod site I had maintained since 1995. Various other files and pages were ported over from my webspace at the U. But that is not why you sought out this page; you want to know something about me. As you can see, my life is an open book.
