General hardware information. I find the Ars Technia system guide insightful.

Brief Bio

I graduated from Reed College in 1987 with a B.A. in Psychology. My undergraduate thesis ought to be fairly amusing by now: "The Effects of Posted Feedback on LaserWriter Payment." In spite of studying how my fellow Reedies did (or did not) pay for their LaserWriter printing, my thesis was produced on a PDP-11 running UN*X, edited with emacs, and formatted with nroff commands. And I walked to school uphill both ways through knee-deep mud.

Upon graduation from Reed, I continued a career in computer user support.

In my spare time, I write science fiction and fantasy short stories. I am also an amateur harptist.

I've lived in Eugene since 1999.
