About Me[edit]

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ISFP

If you want to know a bit about me: I'm not a Ph.D., but I once drove past a HolidayInn on my way to the gas station.

Chillicothe
Frankfort

I grew up in Frankfort, Ohio and Chillicothe, Ohio USA, went to school at the University of Maryland (College Park, Maryland). Worked numerous years for minimum wage and now live in San Antonio, Texas.

Other places where I've spent some significant time are Seoul, South Korea, London, Great Britain, Ramstein, Germany, and Vicenza, Italy, Sarajevo, BiH, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

My Wikihistory[edit]

I've been active in Wikipedia since the Summer of 2004. I was introduced to Wikis as an information source during a forensics computer investigation class.

Currently, I'm much more comfortable editing existing pages than creating new pages from scratch. However, I see my role in Wikipedia, at this point, to cruise around looking for articles that just should be in any decent encyclopedia, but are missing from the Wikipedia, and give them a reasonable start. I don't do sub-stubs - my typical first efforts are 1000-1500 bytes long. As time and inclination permits, I return to enhance and expand them.

As I tool around, I also fix typos and add content to things that I care about and which need it.

My Interests[edit]

My especial interests are beer and homebrewing, beekeeping, computers, especially data mining, professional wrestling (particularly Rey Mysterio of WWE and related areas, and other things.

My Homepages[edit]

You can find my web homepages at:
http://www.yahoo.com - old pages, nothing unique here and will disappear some day
http://www.yahoo.com - new pages, everything from above, plus newer things

The sites above have some interesting stuff, including my An Introduction to Chemometrics,

Of special interest is Brain Candy Central, which contains a bunch of columns I have written for our local Mensa group's newsletter. Some of these have morphed to become Wikipedia articles, and others may do so soon.
