My Interests

It is often said that you can't learn anything just by reading about it. True enough, but I find that reading is often the best place to start, and then it is time to get my hands dirty.  The web has been  a great help to me, as many of the things I am interested in are far enough from mainstream that the market won't support the traditional publishing models. There are, however,  a few publishers around that cater to wierdos like me.  I admire their efforts, so here is some free advertising for them:

Village Press Publisher of "Home Shop Machinist",  "Machinist's Workshop"  and "Live Steam"
Willmann-Bell Publisher of numerous books on telescope making, optics, and like such.
Lindsay Publications A fountain of esoteric knowledge, from the mundane, to the truly fringe.
