How I Spend Too Much of My Time: There are web pages. There are graphics programs. There is Mac OS X with its Unix underpinnings, Apache web server, PHP, and MySQL. Interface builders await investigation. And when I am not occupied with those, there is genealogy.

Our Town

Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

Population: about 673,000

  Local Weather

What makes Boston special: Its reasonably reliable but rickety public transit system. Boston itself is compact; most destinations can be reached on foot. So, when Bostonians are in a hurry, they walk.
