Welcome to my site. Years ago I ran this site from a tiny PC sitting in my bedroom. The Internet's Wayback Machine has a copy of the original site at (http://web.archive.org/web/20070614220434/http://www.digitalhermit.com/about/). Anyhoo, that tiny PC served millions of pages of the course of a few years until demands from work and family took precendence. With a change in roles at the office, I now have a little extra time to restart the site.

In the BBS days I used the name "Dworkin" from Roger Zelazny's Amber novels. "Digital Hermit" was an extension of this alias. Later events in my life made the nom de keyboard seem more and more appropriate, particularly a reading of Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner".

This site is intended mainly to share information with the web community at large and partially as an extended resume. As may be apparent from the links, my hobbies and interests include mathematics, science, Linux, literature, music and film. There is an incredible amount of overlap between these seemingly disparate subjects and the discovery of these inter-relationships is always fascinating.

It is a vain and pretentious thing, I know, but I sincerely hope that others find the information useful.
