|My interests outside of work include scuba diving, photography (both above
and below water), single malt scotch, disc golf, wood-working, and just about anything
else on which I can spend all my spare cash.
About this site
This site started out as an extended 'Bookmarks' list for me, because my bookmarks list
had grown so large that it couldn't fit on my screen. Then I added other stuff to it, like
the Aquashot pages, and later the trip reports and divelog pages. When I did that, I
re-worked the graphical appearance of the site, and started trying out random HTML
goodies. Over the years, the site has grown considerably as I have added new sections and
features. It has long since stopped being an extended bookmarks page, and has taken on a
life of its own.
On this site you'll find links which are of interest to me, which means that they may
or may not be of interest to you. Many of the pages here are "scrapbook" pages
for me, electronic photo albums I put together for myself, my family, and my friends. Some
of these pages (most likely the Aquashot pages, the underwater photography instruction
section, and the scuba trip reports) may be of use
for other people, but I doubt many people will care about most of the contents of my site.
Sigh. Now I've done it. I've gone and gotten a job as a Web designer.
Actually, it's more Web coding than Web design, but I can't claim that I'm not a
web professional any more. Regardless, I now feel like I have a professional
motivation to keep up its appearance. This was the impetus for the rounds of graphical
tweaks implemented in 2000, as well as some of the newer features like the site search
This site should appear "normal," if not
"pleasing" to users of Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator on
screens with 800x600 resolution or higher. Specifically, all of the newer pages have been
designed to fit on an 800-pixel-wide screen.
Also beware when looking at
the underwater photos that no two computer screens are exactly alike. If my images don't
look exactly right on your screen, try adjusting the brightness or contrast of your screen
until they do look right to you. Most people set the brightness too high and the
contrast too low on their monitors. Color balance is another subtle variable which
can affect how images are displayed. All I can tell you is that my photos look normal on
With that out of the way, I hope you enjoy this web site. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments you might
