My personal workstation,
chaos, is an
Indy running IRIX 6.5 (UNIX)
with 64 megs of
memory, 2 gigs of storage space, and a
RISC CPU thrown in for good measure.
Of course I make good use of the
IndyCamTM color video camera for
web pages with real time image capture capabilities.
Actually, the machine I use most is my new linux box.
See my UNIX page for more info.

marvel at the wonders of caffeine addiction.
Thinking is certainly one of my most important hobbies.
By the way,

highest on the scale). I'm sure you were interested.
I am somewhat of a cinemaphile in my spare time.
I especially enjoy films
presented in a THX
-certified theatre, ensuring superior sound quality.
Please go to my
film page for more movie information.
Everyone have their own DVD player yet?
DVD, or Digital Versatile Disc, was released to the
consumer public on Monday, March 24, 1997 in seven test cities around the

switch to digital video pretty early.
Check out this
Sony site to see the player I own.
