Personal Stuff and other Oddments

Here is a link to my wonderful honey Sue Wolber's web page. Of course she gave me no end of grief about not having a link to her page from mine and so she loses major points because of that. :-)

I love to fly. The other folks I work with are sick of hearing about it. I like to fly taildraggers, a real pilot's airplane. My Baby is a 1946 Cessna C140 classic vintage taildragger. I am also a co-owner in a 1963 Cessna C182. This is a good solid airplane. I am in instrument rated, commercial pilot. I first learned to fly in gliders. A good online book about flying is available by John S. Denker called "See How It Flies" at http://www.av8n.com/how/.

Ham Radio

I am a ham radio operator. The FCC issued me KF0UW as my ham radio callsign, unique in the world. You will find me on the radio mostly on 146.52 simplex. I am also an frequent visitor to 40m CW. Check out the NCARC, CCARC and the American Radio Relay League home pages. I recently took a picture of the ham shack. It is not very exciting.


I like to play Go. Drop by for a game if you are also a Go player. I have been taking some time off from that but hope to be returning soon. The local group likes to get together and play casual games at the local coffee shops in Fort Collins. And then COVID19 arrived shutting everything down including our favorite coffee shops! I play at about the 8 kyu level and am hopefully improving. Check out the American Go Association web page.

Free Software Advocacy

I am a big proponent of Free Speech software. I mother over and moderate the mailing lists for the GNU Project (about 1,500 or so!) and a few others. I developed the "listhelper" anti-spam system in use there.

I also wrote and maintain the GNU coreutils FAQ.
