Welcome to 1997.

I created my original personal webpage (pubpages.unh.edu/~wfc) way back in 1997.  What you see below is a reasonable facsimile of the original contents of that page which had remained mostly unchanged ever since.  But all good things must eventually come to an end, which is what happened when the UNH Pubpages site itself was decommisioned at the end of the 2016/2017 academic year.   So what was once the plainest of vanilla HTML, lovingly crafted by hand using the emacs text editor, is now content recreated using a WYSIWYG web page editor courtsey of the OpenScholar open source SaaS platform.  How times have changed.

I am part of the Enterprise Technology Services (ECT) group of the UNH IT Department department. When this page was originally created, I was part of the team that implemented UNH's very first efforts at creating a web presence (UNHinfo). I guess keeping this page pretty much unchanged since then could be seen as a tribute to the good old days. But in truth, I'm just lazy about this sort of thing.

A long time ago I use to own this unusual 3D video camcorder. I sold it to a Korean company that wanted it for creating content for a stereoscopic TV technology they were working on. Never heard any more about. I still maintain the page about this camcorder for people curious about these devices. But I haven't done anything with stereographic video for a very long time now, so don't expect me to have anything intelligent to say about the current technologies.  

  • Here is an extensive review I wrote in the Fall of 2011 about the LG D2342 3D computer monitor that uses passive glasses technology. This is a nice feature for non-Windows folks because no hardware drivers are needed to run it.

  • Straight Dope is one of the few pages on the net that I go back to on a regular basis to read. If this is the first you've heard of it, you may want to check it out.
