Site and Copyright Info

I put up this site in 1997. The site location has moved a few times since then (from one college to another, then to PC on which I was running Debian and then OpenBSD, then to a friend's machine for a few months as I was in the process of moving, then to a Mac on which I was running Ubuntu and then Debian). The content and design have been expanded a few times as well, but much of the original content remains.

I've tried to keep this site clean, simple, and navigable. This means legible fonts, wide margins, few images, organized navigation links, and a site which is viewable in text-only web browsers. The HTML was written using a smattering of text editors (pico, nano, joe, and vim). In a few cases the HTML was generated by TTH or LaTeX2HTML. I've tried to use standards-compliant HTML and have tested the site appearance in a variety of web browsers (though admittedly not in a decade). In addition to HTML, there's a bit of CSS2 and PHP, as well as Perl and then Python for site maintenance. Icons are PNGs and JPGs generated by GraphicConverter. If it looks like this site was designed in the 1990s, that's because it was. :)

Photos are served using Gallery with a MySQL backend.

Students: Plagiarism is not at all appreciated. Seriously, don't do it: you'll miss out on an opportunity to learn, and you'll probably get caught. I've had two professors contact me about plagiarized papers. Teachers: If you believe any of these works to have been plagiarized, let me know.
