The Original, which includes some actual content, "C++ Extensions I'd Like to See" and "Command Line Args made Easy".

Ancient Home Page , I started this page back in 1997, when I still thought Sailor Moon was cool! I'm keeping this page around mainly for archival (or is that archeological?) reasons.
Entropy Zone, is an experimental page in e-tailing, in which I try to shill my "unique" T-shirt, mouse-pad, etc designs. The neat part is that I don't have to actually print or deliver shirts... that's all taken care of by another internet site. To date, I have made 1 (one) dollar from this site. Seriously.

Lengthy technical discussion on the development of the H-1 and F-1 rocket engines. F-1's were the massive engines that propelled the first stage of the Apollo Saturn V rocket. Neat factoid: scientists would detonate small bombs in the engines (while they were running) to test combustion stability.

Amazing. There may be a small portion of the population with pseudonormal vision -- that is, they see red as green and green as red. However, it's probably impossible to design an experiment to determine if this is true, because these people (if they exist) would call green red and red green.
