This home page contains information and pointers to information
concerning topics in which I have some sort of interest, be that
professionally or personally. You may notice a distinct lack of
graphics, pictures, and the like. This is because I've developed
this Web page entirely with the use of the
browser on a VT-200 terminal
emulator. This is partly due to equipment limitations and partly
due to a (probably cantankerous) notion that one should develop
at least the skeleton of these things first without the use of
graphics, which can later be added to enhance and extend the

- Collections of links to topics as diverse as oceanography,
climatology and paleoclimatology, parallel computing, text processing,
etexts, numerical analysis, UNIX, computer languages, etc.
- Meta-resources on the net
- This is a list of resources that point to other resources on the
net, i.e. meta-resources. One wonders when it will get to the
next level, i.e. meta-meta-meta-resources.
- A collection of bibliographies on topics such as oceanography papers

- Sesquipedalia and bibliomania
- Here is a collection of word lists, dictionaries, and various other

annoy our friends and enemies.

way or another. Your mileage, as is said, may vary.

like this using HTML
- What you are reading was created using Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML),
which is a way of marking up documents and encoding document structure
with a minimum of presentation information. This allows the viewer
that you're using (e.g. Mosaic, Lynx, etc.) to present the information
contained therein in whatever format is supported by that viewer. It
also facilitates portability in that the document isn't tied down to
a specific piece of software or hardware.
This leads to information about the World Wide Web (WWW), HTML, and
