Hi, my name is Jim.

Welcome to my personal website. I'm not sure why I need a personal website but it seems to be the thing to do these days. I find myself in possession of a fair amount of disk space and bandwidth since I bought an account with this unique hosting service so I've got to do something with it.

This website will most likely always be a work in progress. I'm not about to commit to a rate of progress. I'll address some things that that I find interesting or important. Today that includes computers and networking, meteorology, GPS, Shooting, and exploration geophysics which happens to be how I make my living. Maybe I'll get around to taking on some of the things I don't like. These include abusive advertising, swapping freedom and responsibility for nonexistant security, and penalizing everyone for the abuses of the few with things like speedbumps.

These subjects and a few other items will appear in the list to the left as I get to them. We'll just have to see what happens next.
