About This Website

Welcome!

This is my personal site. It’s been online, in various forms, since the days before most people had heard of the web, when there were printed directories of web sites, kinda like phone books. (Phone books were printed directories listing the names, addresses, and telephone numbers for people in a given community. Why were trees wasted this way? Well, that was many years “BG” — Before Google.) 

 

Way back when, this was the goto website for links to media organizations and the home to a lot of information on Packet Radio. (What’s that? Computer-to-computer communication via radio. This was before iPhones, before BlackBerries, and done by amateur (“ham”) radio operators. We had an international email network, over radio, before most people even knew there was email.)

Don’t expect frequent addition of new content! This is my site, and I’ll do what I want with it when I want to. Probably infrequently. So there! 😎

To Contact Me

Since my email address was posted online starting way back, well, let’s say a long time ago, I tend to get a lot of spam. It’s gone way down recently, and I don’t want that to change, so I have stopped (intentionally) posting my email address online.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear from my website’s visitors! You can still send me an email from my site – just use my Comments form.
