About RAS

There is plenty of information about myself on this website.  If you are looking for more information about my professional side you can check out my Resume page and/or the Articles and Presentations page.  If you are interested in some of my favorite websites you can check out the Favorites page. 

This site was developed and is maintained with Microsoft's FrontPage 2002 (XP).  The site is now hosted by GoDaddy Software.

This page concentrates more on my personal side.
  • Favorite all-time movie quote: "Never tell me the odds...", Hans Solo in the Empire Strikes Back
  • Person dead or alive I would like to meet: Neil Armstrong
  • Favorite food (in case you want to take me to lunch <g>): Thai - Vegetable Curry, medium spice

I find software development to be more than a job, it is also one of my many hobbies.  Outside of computers I love camping, cycling, genealogy, photography, space exploration, and coin collecting.

Q & A

This web site is a media to pass along information to to friends and colleagues. Below is a set of questions a friend passed along in one of those chain emails. While I don't support (and usually delete) these Internet clogging junk mails, I found this one particularly fun and a way to pass along information to those interested.
