These are the pages of Perran (in real life known as Daniel F. Dickinson). They are an attempt to go where only one man as gone before (that is into my world, where only I have been). I have written some things about religion and how it has affected my life, and my current beliefs. I plan to have articles on politics and philosophy, but in keeping with my major (Computer Science, which I take at the University of Guelph), the intention is to have mostly computer related topics. So far this isn't true and the majority of what of what is here is stuff about me.
At present the computer pages I have are only a few technical documents I have written including two how-to guides that I wrote when I was a Teaching Assistant at the University of Guelph. I also have done up a web page with the specs on some 486 machines (a few which were given to me) which were rescued by friends of mine. I found and listed the specs so that we could get the machines into useful shape, and to have a template for the pages I want to make of all the computers I maintain, and as I build new systems for family or friends. With all the systems I have and intend to build I will havea veritable computer zoo.
I've been enjoying designing these pages, and also working on other web pages at C & I Technologies Inc. were I work as a programmer and web page designer (more programmer than web page designer). I think the best web site I have done so far is the one, but before that it was the one for Guelph City Realty Limited. A work in progress is C & I Technologies Inc (and my personal pages always need more work, even if they are currently better than any others I have done to date).
Other things I do include roleplaying (see here for all the characters which I currently have in machine-readable formats). and reading science fiction and fantasy novels. I am the past president of FLASH (the University of Guelph's club for Fantasy, Literature, Anime, Science Fiction, and Horror).
