This is my website from Caltech, 1992-2002, which has been retired to my web attic, and is here for archival purposes only.

Many of the links are broken, and much of the information contained within this attic is out-of-date, incomplete, unclear, useless, ridiculous, offensive, obnoxious, stupid, and/or just-plain-wrong.
