October 2019: Yet another update … after only 5 years!
Adobe Contribute is defunct. I’m sorta/kinda editing in MS Word.
July 2014: This homepage is being updated
after a nine year hiatus. Contribute has
become an Adobe product and the search for a favorite customer quote
March 2005: This homepage has been updated
... for the first time since 2001. I used some unfamiliar software
(Macromedia Contribute) but it worked OK.
However I am still looking for a
"favorite customer quote or similar piece of text" over there

"Insert a favorite customer quote or similar piece of text here."
— Satisfied Customer
Despite 29+ years of
teaching and perhaps as many as 4,000 students in various classes,
Satisfied Customer has yet to appear on my roster.
Quotes - reportedly said in lecture.
An Ancient Relic
- a PDF file of my PhD thesis (more or less)
This differs from the
MIT library copy because the mitthesis latex
class has changed since 1990.
