This is my personal homepage. My professional home page is here.
Updates may take place at any time, links may sometimes be incomplete.
Search These Pages
This is a mini-search facility which searches only my web pages, not the whole server.
A Safe Subject: The Weather
A few handy links for checking on the local weather.
Transportation Matters
Some useful links about alternatives to the private automobile.
Not-so-Safe Subjects
Everyone's got their opinions and I certainly have my share. If you want to know what I think or what reading I have found useful about such things as the WTO, IMF, Monsanto, 9/11 and other hot topics, go here. If you don't like controversy, don't go here.
Interested in Stirling Engines?
This is a fascinating also-ran in the history of combustion engines: the heavy, low-power, but efficient external combustion Stirling design.
Photo Album
I finally got a scanner working with my Linux box. With a scanner and GIMP, a person might never sleep again...
Speaking of GIMP, here are the results of some pleasantly wasted hours playing with it.
Hobbies and suchlike
What I do when I'm not at work (when was that?)
Internet Humour
Well, I thought it was funny anyway.

Sure beats working . . .
