This is a work in progress and will likely always be.

Computer Science Projects:
    My education is in Computer Science (BS and MS), and I surprisingly enough work in a computer science related job.  So, I have done many programming projects for classes or work that might be useful.  For example, if you want to see some code using pthreads, or whatever, I have done some projects with that.  I am mainly working on graphics processor accelerated codes at present, so feel free to check out those related pages and perhaps check out some source code while you are there.
    At the time of writing, I still have an UTSA CS account, and  therefore still have my CS web space.  I am not sure how long it will remain active, but you might find something out there on my CS pages as well.

Car Projects:
    Sometime in the summer of 2005 I bought a Saab 92x.  It is really a rebranded Subaru WRX.  That summer, GM was having some crazy incentives like $8k off the normal price, so I went for it.  I actually had been wanting to buy a WRX for a while, so this was a good opportunity.
    It turns out that there are tons of aftermarket parts for the WRX and since a 92x is basically a WRX also for the 92x.  I am not really a mechanic, but most of these aftermarket parts are bolt-on direct replacements such that just about anyone could figure it out.  When I stated to do some research, I found that there was not a lot of good information about tuning my car, so perhaps some of my write ups might help someone out there trying to do the same things.  Check out my car projects page to see a list of things that I have done to my car.

Linux Projects:
     I should say Linux or FOSS related projects.  I basically use Linux and free and open source software for the majority of my work.  I like to contribute to FOSS projects as much as possible with source code and documentation.  For the moment, I just have some install guides for some laptops that I have been using for work.  Hopefully the Linux projects will be an expanding area of my site.  You might be able to find some useful source code on my computer science projects pages in the mean time.

    The content related to the Adams family, which I am a part of, has largely moved to the newsletter site.  Feel free to check it out.

    This is a site I run my home webserver.  It may or may not be online.  ;)  This is where we are presently hosting family news letters.
