Fishtanks

I've been keeping aquaria since 1974 and had something to do with very early Usenet aquaria newsgroups and mailing lists in the 1980s. Over the years I've run the Cryptocoryne mailing list run and the livebearers list. I read aquabid a lot for my fish "fix". I did a couple of killi websites in the '90s. Point of trivia the killifish mailing list I (still) run was the first tropical fish mailing list on the internet and killi.net and aquaria.net were the first two tropical fish domain names ever registered. I think mark Barnett's fishlinkcentral was the third. It was easy to kep track of them back then there were none, then there were a very small number. These days I use new top level domains for this fish stuff.

We had about the cheapest electricy in North American here in Ontario, then the government privatized it and now we pay 3X as much despite using less every year; and then there's the price of oil... my casual interest in alternative energy sources has been piqued.

I'm not big into clocks really, I prefer watches. But I came across thins Jefferson goldern hour and I'd never give it up. I bought it as junk, plugged it in and it's kept pretty decently accurate time ever since. Amazingly all parts are still available for these things (2007) although mine hasn't needed any so far.

This, in my opinion, is what the net was meant to do.

In the late 1980s I was responsible for the creation of the usenet newsgroup comp.fonts. I've always been interested in typefaces.

We live in a nearly 200 year old house. It's amazing how much you learn about fixing houses when you live in one this old. Like you have a friggin choice.

I've played with old watches for most of my life and particularly like Bulovas from the 30s and 40s and Lemania prewar chronos. Oh and that Roamer 44 jewel thing.
