I keep a weblog at reliable.info. If you're looking for a page that's more interesting than this one, look there.
I live in San Francisco and work on web sites and databases.
I am the staff systems administrator at
I also do some programming and writing as an independent contractor.
I have done Apache, PHP, and MySQL work for sites that include SFGate, Napster, and efn (the community-run ISP that hosts this page). At SFGate, I developed the election night database system and I still maintain the searchable entertainment listings.
Recently I have been working on two small utilities to help manage Spread, a multicast messaging toolkit developed at Johns Hopkins University. I also wrote this article about Spread, which appeared in the Feb. 2003 issue of SysAdmin Magazine.
