Hello and welcome to my website. Here's what everybody should know about me:
Text descriptions of hikes I made in summer 2000. These pages
were salvaged from the now-defunct Weekend Warriors Website.
External Archives containing my Work
- One of my photos was picked up by Climbing magazine, for an article about slab climbing in the summer 2012 issue (scroll down to the Quincy Quarries section). In the printed magazine it's a third-of-a-page photo.
A couple of my photos are hanging inside the Harris Center (or were in 2012)
One of my photos was used as Photo of the Week in NHPR's "Something Wild" photo blog (March 21, 2008).
Another was used by Northern Woodlands magazine in winter 2007 (print edition only).
Lots of my photos, and descriptions of my hiking and climbing trips, are online at Summitpost.
I'll often post photos I'm particularly fond of to my Flickr stream even before posting them here on my own website.
Places Where my Photos have been Exhibited (for a limited time)
Python "bug" report
is no longer the #1 Google hit for my name, in fact it seems to have disappeared
entirely from Google's index. But the Web does not forget: the page linked to above
contains the entire embarrassing episode.
For a while, Google itself (well, Deja.com originally) preserved my one semi-legitimate claim to
bug-reporting fame, a
discovered by a coworker of mine. I was teaching a lesson on the behavior
of truth values in Perl, and he contradicted me. I was right according to the
language specification, and he was right according to the program he'd just written.
(The bug had already been fixed in a more recent release.)
