Dentin is a small non-winged beast with long hair and a tough, flame
resistant yellow outer covering. I obtained a degree in electrical
engineering with minors in math, physics, and CS in 1997, and
make a small amount of money working for a small corporation writing
signal processing software. I play bass and sing in a cover
band. On the side, I also run an online game server with a rather
large contingent of visually impaired players.
I recently became a black belt at the
school for Chinese martial arts. If you're in the area, you may want
to take a look - this is a small school with six very good, very well

I also run a blog to keep track of problems in my apartment. This is
largely brought on by the lack of hot water when I need it; that got me mad
enough to go on an unholy posting spree and set everything up. See the
Trials of a Louisville 800
Apartments Resident for my latest rants and issues with the building.
A mud is an text based 'virtual reality' game, where you can log in and
interact with other people. Dentin's MUD is named 'Alter Aeon', and can be found at the
Alter Aeon main page. It
has been open to the public since the summer of 1995, and its
official birth date is January 15, 1995. It has a solid, long lived
player base and caters extensively to the blind and visually impaired.

Miscellaneous electrical engineering and signal processing writings go here. These
in general won't be very technical or math intensive; the intent is
to give some general ideas and detail my experiences in a few arcane
fields. It will probably be assumed that readers will have some minimum
amount of domain knowledge to understand the basic ideas.

Miscellaneous cool stuff.
EFNI, one of the best technical Babylon 5 fan sites on the web. EFNI is a
vast treasure trove of information on the combat and ship specifications in the
Babylon 5 universe. Keep in mind that the maintainer of the site knows
english only as a second language - don't let the broken grammar fool you.
This site contains without a doubt some of the most technically sound,
hard-science descriptions of the technology in the Babylon 5 universe to date.
Gemcraft Abuse, a tale of my exploits
and abuse of the final level of this fun little flash game.
Excellent talks and presentations on a number of topics, distributed for free by the TED think tank.
A free US radar map that doesn't suck, unlike all those commercial sites.
Lots of cool stuff, and some wierd/cool stories at qntm.org.
