Why I Am A Latter-day Saint

Read the incredibly story of why Jason is a Mormon and why you may also want to follow his lead!

Seeking Transcendence?

I write extensively on my concept of transcendence and how to attain it.

There is also other "transcendent" topics that you can read.

Read some Inspiring Stories

At times, especially in the past, I have composed a few fiction stories. One has even been published in a regional anthology! You can purchase my stories in e-book or paperback form at the Amazon Store

Here are several other essays written by Jason that you can read.

Go Down the Gopher-Hole!

I first connected with NSFnet in 1992 as a teacher at an alternative high school. The way you accessed information in those days was through a Gopher server as the World Wide Web was not yet widely used. It seemed every university and government was busy putting all their information on Gopher servers. It was a blessed time.

These days, I run one of the more active and more large gopher servers in the world, which really doesn't say very much. Most every document that I have produced for public consumption is here, blissfully free of WWW cruft and any need to pay for access, just like the pre-HTTP days. I would call this exclusive content, except that anyone with a Gopher client can access it. Of course, you will require more than a mouse click to accomplish this -- your journey through the historical "network of networks" is about to begin!

If you can't rustle up a proper gopher client (such as Lynx) to use the link above, you can dig in my own gopher-hole via http through the Floodgap Public Gopher Proxy. It is somewhat inferior to the true Gopher experience, but you still have access to everything...

Check Out Other Things

You can also read my semi-perpetual computer recommendation. Many people say that it is fine advice and is often used all around the world.

Like every other hiker, I have a personal site for many of my hiking and camping adventures. I also mirror the wonderful Pennystove website.

When it comes to computers, nothing beats the Sinclair ZX81, which was known in the United States of America as the Timex Sinclair 1000. I have a small collection of programs and information to allow anyone to build and/or operate their own 1980's vintage computer! I still have my hacked-up TS1000 around here somewhere...

I am a sad excuse for a "ham" radio operator, but I do have my license and the W5JSN callsign. You can read about my pathetic amatuer radio story.

Long ago, in the early "naughts", I did some contract work for our local health council. As part of that work, I created a website that contained abstracts of then-current research on subjects of interest to council members. I keep it on my server as a (hopeful) service to the ages.
