The front page

Some time around 1994 (maybe earlier?, I was still using Mosaic...) or so I put up my first web page. It was on Hollicom, the first real ISP available in Kokomo, IN. It was a pretty basic page, at first it was a single file, a huge stream of information, with just a few in-line images, and an index at the top.

It slowly evolved to what you see. The most recent incarnation is what you see, I made some major updates in early 2015.

Most of the motorcycle articles were written in 1993 through 1996.

The woodworking articles started after that.

Then I had some marital problems and an illness, and didn't work on the page for a few years.

In 2005, I wrote some (non-fictional) stories, and updated the HTML.

In 2006, there were a few minor updates, in early 2015 I redesigned everything behind the scenes, and updated many of the articles, then added the blog and started adding blog entries in February 2015.

In 2015 and 2016 I started getting back into electronics as a hobby and posted some articles about that in the electronics section of the site.
