I'm a COBOL programmer, a green-screen dinosaur, born in 1942 in Portland, Oregon. Raised in Southern California, married three times, twice divorced, father of three, grandfather of six, currently living in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

"Forsnax5" is actually the network name of an IBM Thinkpad that happens to be the 5th personal computer that I've owned and named.

"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

-- C. S. Lewis
