Life is like a spider. It is furry and has eight legs.
Welcome to my homepage! I'm going to skip the intro -- you'll figure
me out from what you see here. Or not.
A note about the icons on these pages: the small ones in black frames
are done by me; I retain all rights on them. If you want to use them,
please contact me first. All others are ones I've snarfed off the
net; I'm trying to replace them with my own.
Places I visit frequently
Pages I maintain
If you know of a page covering any of these areas that I don't already
have, let me know about it.
- I brew beer. Surprise, surprise, I also drink beer. However, I
don't drink normal American slug-killer - Budmilloors and the
like. There's too much good stuff out there to waste my time on that.
- I have my own page of beer ratings
that I maintain. I also have an
alphabetic list of the beers I've
Meow is a huge archive of net-accessible beer recipes for
virtually any style you might care to brew. It's available through
The Brewery, a large
information base for home brewers.

wealth of beer information and links. It leans toward commercial

- The Beer Mapping Project
(ab)uses Google maps to show locations of brewpubs, breweries, beer
bars, and beer stores in various US cities, as well as regional
brewpub and brewery maps.
- I've been interested in computers and the law. I've been studying
law as a hobby for a while, and recently graduated from
law school at
Suffolk University in Boston.
I'm now trying to get a job at a firm like Powers Phillips. Since I've started
school, people have been sending me lawyer
jokes. Gee, I wonder why...
- I enjoy cooking -- I find it a good way to relax. I have found
one pure cooking reference, The
Cook's Thesaurus, and a lot of recipe sites.
- The Cook's Thesaurus is a
cooking encyclopedia that covers thousands of ingredients and kitchen
tools. Entries include pictures, descriptions, synonyms,
pronunciations, and suggested substitutions.
- Baking 911, which has lots
of information, tips, and tricks about baking, as well as recipes.
- cheese.com is a good online
reference for a wide variety of cheeses.
- My own cooking and recipes page. Right
now, it has tips on weighing, and two dessert recipes.
- Allrecipes has a vast
collection of recipes, allows you to search by ingredient (woo!) and
has a recipe scaling tool.
- Recipes galore at the
English Server. Lots of vegetarian recipes, lots of carnivore
recipies. The carnivore recipe headings are entertaining.
- Godiva Chocolatier has a
information and recipes at
Chuang has a list of
equivalents and conversions at the
Cambridge School of
- I'm also generally interested in food. Aren't we all?
- History and heraldry are two other hobbies of mine, but I've not
found anywhere near as much stuff (well, nothing, really) on the Web
about either. If anyone knows of links about either, let me know.
Pages and pages of stuff
Neat home pages
- Other people's home pages that are cool or otherwise fun.
- Handy things to have available.
Random nifty links
- Links off into the depths of the Web.
- High level documents
- Pages that have pointers to lots of places. These are good places
to start exploring.
- Work-related links
- You'd think that a cool technology like this would give me more time
to play with it before I actually found something useful to do
