I am Daniel F. Smith! Welcome to my domain. This is where I put files and photos and various stuff. I have have a web log, if you are interested in what I'm currently doing, and starred (or co-starred) in a small wedding back in 2005.
Ah, the tough questions come quickly. I'll get around to answering this one as soon as my DNA test gets submitted. In the meantime, you are welcome to hazard a guess at what I am from what I look like.
I live with my wife and sons in the vicinity of Santa Cruz, California.
You are probably here to find out about dfsmith (that's me!) or about something I put on here (which was me!*). If that's so, you're in the right place.
* Unless it was embarrassing, illegal or plain dumb, in which case it wasn't me.
I've got some photo essays set up at the moment. Browse through them. Dare ya! In addition, as stuff gets finalized, I'm making my home automation and DAT software available for download. Or perhaps you're interested in my past power consumption and generation?
I've also put some of my short, and rather silly, movies here. Please note, Yahoo! and av.com seem to rank this page pretty high in movie searches—but we only have 50KB/s upload speed! The Elvis movies are available, high bandwidth, at skielvis.com.
- Ski Elvis Day 2003 at Mount Rose (65MB MPEG). (We made the Reno Gazette Journal!)
- My vacuum cleaner (5MB MPEG). It slices through dirt. Bwa-ha-ha! (Just for fun.)
- Ski Elvis Day 2004 (59MB MPEG). Isildur Presley battles the evil Sauron Presley.
- The amazing disappearing Kurt! (10MB MPEG) (A feasibility piece for another project.)
- A Star Elvis Scroller feasibility piece (2MB MPEG) (can you see where it's going...).
- Ski Elvis Day 2005 is available at skielvis.com! There are even more photos there too. I'm wearing white, because it's the best camouflaged color for the ski patrol to find me in after an avalanche.
Err, no. Um, sorry. My wife has some much spiffier pages at slorien.com, though. In fact, she's doing web design now.
If you phone us (we're in the book!) then we can tell you our email verbally. If you are net-savvy, you can probably find the number fairly easily without dialling.
Um, yes. From a 1/4" tape cartridge I present... early HTML! And people wonder why programmers shouldn't design web pages. (By the way, don't expect non-local links to work; these pages are ancient in web time.)
