I'm not sure who that old bald guy is over here on the left - he reminds me of my dad from about 30 years ago. Well, at least I replaced the unrealistic picture of me wearing a necktie.

While our protracted Michigan winter dominates, I (as time permits) play around with cryptograms, and with math and logic puzzles. Competing in AOL's math contest was once a source of great personal pleasure, to say nothing of the 'free' hours I won, but AOL moved it, and I can no longer find it. Besides, I had great difficulty getting home from work in time to beat everyone else to the first answer to all but the most difficult of puzzles.
