Hello, web surfer! [a

He's currently an NAU technical Webmaster, plus brought up (and mainained for a number of years) the "dana" and "jan" unix systems, and hopes you are getting a lot out of these systems.

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:
