I'm a programmer and mostly inactive user. I created my account on Wikipedia on October 23, 2004. After seeing a year's worth of my work here erased piecemeal through the churn of the deletionists, I walked away in frustration. I still pop on from time to time to check in and make the occasional fix to articles I'm browsing. I still use Wikipedia almost every day as a reader, but my days of being an active editor are essentially over. I've left my user page pretty much intact.

I think my most lasting contributions are copyleft images I added to the commons. You can see my photos under the Photographs I've taken section. If you would like me to relicense any of my media contributions under a new license, please contact me and I'd be happy to cooperate.

Stuff for Me[edit]


Picture of the day

The M-209 is a portable, mechanical cipher machine used primarily by the US military in World War II, though it remained in active use through the Korean War. In this photograph, an intermediate gear unit (center) meshes with gears adjoining each key wheel. Visible to the left of the image is the typewheel that prints out messages and ciphertext onto paper tape.
