Hello, web surfer! [a photo] Here's some Web-based information that covers briefly the history and current activities and interests of Dr. Tobias Kreidl , who is a member of NAU's Computing Technology Services staff. He's currently an NAU Team Lead for Academic Computing and heavily involved in virtualization, GPU technology and general serrvices to students, faculty and staff. He brought up (and istill helps to maintain) the "dana" and "jan" unix systems, and hopes you are getting a lot out of them.

(Bad photo to the right -- my eyes are really blue. Really.) Education, work, interests, etc. will all appear here eventually. Rome wasn't built in a day, either.

Recent projects: One recent project has involved helping to establish a searchable database for abstracts of the American Journal of Physics (AJP) and The Physics Teacher (TPT) covering 1976-95.

I have also implemented a new, localized Google search engine. To check it out, go to NAU's Google search engine page. Or, if you wish, search just my local Web pages:
