This is a personally operated and maintained page. The contents used to be hosted by
the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at NIU, but as the circumstances have changed, the
server supporting this effort has been disabled. To be able to maintain this tool in order
to promote my professional and teaching objectives, I purchased my own service.
Note added 17 April 2006: I started designing this page eight years ago, when I got
my first version of FrontPage Editor. It was a novelty for me and I created number of
links I though were useful or interesting. But times have changed. The web now contains
much more information than eight years ago and the search engines make it much easier to
find a needed information on the fly. What used to be handy to have on my own web page is
available elsewhere. I was also exited by the fact that I had more available storage space
on the server than on my personal computer. That has changed. The server allocation
remained the same so to accommodate my growing teaching files, I removed some of the other
material. With external USB hard drives, localized storage is no problem anymore.
Thus, if you find a dead link or a page that looks very old, it is because it is from the
old system and I keep it there for historical reason.
