Work and Education History

I first came to Boulder, Colorado in the fall of 1974 at the age of 18 to attend the University of Colorado. I liked it here so much that I stayed. While in graduate school in April of 1979, I got a Student Assistant job here at NCAR working for the Mesoscale Research Section (MRS) which is now part of the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology (MMM) division. which led to a staff job as a FORTRAN programmer in March of 1981, working for the High Altitude Observatory (HAO) shortly after I received my Master's degree. I gradually became more interested in systems programming and in 1986 I became the lead systems administrator for HAO. As part of those duties I was involved in our connection to the Internet via the old National Science Foundation network (NSFnet). As a consequence of that I learned much about administering a networked e-mail system (based on sendmail) and the USENET news system (starting with the old B news system, later converting to C news and finally to InterNet News(INN). This finally led to my current position in the Scientific Computing Division (SCD) as postmaster (among other things). For a full listing of my current job duties, see my work page.

Hobbies and Interests

A few of them, anyway.


In 1992 I married Eva Kosinski (formerly Eva Tervo) who had left her job at the former Computer Science Network (CSnet) after it was brutally taken over by BITNET/CREN. We do not have any children nor do we plan to. We live in a disgustingly suburban neighborhood in Louisville, CO.
