Clicking here--well, where you just clicked to get here--takes
you (quite literally) to the background
of the photo.
It's also the backdrop of the last eight years
of my life (Revised site note, 2/3/10: those eight years were from 1988 to, at that time, 1996 when I first made and uploaded this site on 9/21/96 -- I didn't complete the Ph.D. until Spring of 1998.
