So, you wanna know more about The Cloudmaster, eh? Well, for starters, his
name's actually Danny Sauer, and this is his home page's third generation.
I know, I know, I've been promising to put up a better page for several years
now. Well, I finally got a decent internet pipe to my house (insert plug for
CCA Online here), so the web server's
local now, and thus, I'm inclined to work on it more often. For some reason,
I was just not motivated enough to redo the whole site in an ssh session over
a high-latency 56K link. Look, I've updated the page some, though. Never mind
that the motivation to update this page is the pending demise of my employer.
You, the reader, get updated content! Especially in the
Here's a list of stuff I'm providing at this location:
My mobile mp3 player project information. Everyone
else is doing it... :) The page went up in ,
and was hit times. The
project's kinda dead since I sold the car - so it doesn't get updated much.
My other projects. Various products of Aardvarks With Chisels.
That page was last modified on
My link page. Not much here, but it's available.
I recently modified my bookmarks page to not suck.
Now I'm using bk2site to make
a cool little Yahoo!-like site for my horrific bookmarks file. This thing's
just neat as heck... :)
My resume. Resumes are too formal to have any real
fun with or to fully describe the typical geek (such as myself). Drop me an
informal email if you really wanna know what I can do.
An auto-math page. Right now, there's just a
calculator for gear-ratio/tire-size/speed relationships, but soon there'll be a
whole bunch of cool stuff up for car people. :)
Ryan's proposal for Rhapsody's menu system.
You're free to get ahold of him and
incorporate menus like this in your next user interface (window manager
developers?) Fixed, as of late Apr. 2000. Irrelevent, as of a while ago. :)
There are some
screenshots here of stupid/silly dialogs...
I've put together some random ramblings that I think
should be published somewhere, but don't make sense anywhere. I'll occasionally
update that page with more stupid things. :)
cracking team, known as DeathKabob. No, we're not
evil - it's a funny, made up name (explained on the page).
My idiots who shouldn't be e-mailing
page, here for your amusement (someday soon, maybe).
- The local DeCSS mirror. No, not the illegal one, but a program for removing cascading style sheets, named DeCSS just to annoy MPAA searchers. Read the page for a rant I agree with (mostly).
- A handy google search form that makes me 3 cents per search... :)
It's not really "provided" here, but I regularly contribute to the
LUCI (linux users of central IL)
discussion list, so it's
relevant to me.
I suppose that I should one day get some better stuff up here, and probably
take the time to generally reorganize. I'll probably arrange the site using
the Faq-o-matic, mostly because I really like the
system and I assume that most people come to my site with a question that
they want answered. I'd like to think that some of them even want to give
me a job - preferably a job adminning a mixed linux/windows network, though
I'd happily develop for the web. A job where I could admin systems used to
develop for the web would be cool, too.
By the way, use linux. On that linux
system, at least try
I've been using KDE recently, having cycled through gnome and windowmaker,
as well as some less significant window managers. KDE's matured pretty
nicely since the early betas, and is now really pretty easy for most any
non-geek to use. The browser (Konqueror) that's an integral part of KDE
is really quite nice now, too.
