Tony kindly gave his permission for me to display it.
I don't do much with my web site any more. See my
blog for more.
- Standard Disclaimer
- If I've fooled you into thinking that I know what I'm talking about, you
had better read my standard disclaimer.
- I like to star-gaze. Among other things, I wrote a parent's guide to
buying a child a telescope.
- Iguana Blurb
- I like Giant Green Iguanas (that's what the cute little green iguanas
become). I wrote a beginner's guide to keeping a pet iguana.
- The Continuing Adventures of Borris, the Amazing Talking Dog
- My sense of humor is a little ... um ... unusual.
- My personal wiki. Not sure there is much in there of interest to a general audience.
- My personal blog.
- Other social media
- Please don't use my FaceBook page or my Twitter feed.
I generally accept friend requests on FaceBook from people I know, but I never post anything and I never log in an read other people's postings.
Ditto with Twitter.
In spite of the risks, I just don't have time.
- a message board that I host.
- q module (queue)
- software package (in C) which implements a fast, lock-free, non-blocking queue.
- BBST (BBS Thingie)
- software package (in Perl) which implements "bbs_thingie" message board.
- EM (Event Manager)
- software package providing APIs and set of command-line utilities for process/thread synchronization.
- SEMLIT (Semi-Literate documentation)
- software package to produce detailed source code documentation.
I don't like email very much, and I've got a pretty full life these days. The astronomy and
iguana pages are very old and out of date, and I have no particular desire to update them. If you
have a quick and easy question, there's a good chance I'll respond within a week or two, but don't
get your hopes up too high.
If, after reading that, you still want to email me, my email domain is geeky-boy.com and my
email account on that domain is sford. I wrote it out that way so that email address harvesters
wouldn't find it. (Not that it helps much - I get plenty of spam as it is.)
