This is Al (formerly of Sub-Etha Software
formerly of Lufkin, Texas) and this is my vanity page. I'm trying hard to make
it live up to everyone's expecations by filling it with useless information
about myself which, for some strange reason, people who visit my site will be
compelled to read.
Useless Information About Myself Which, for Some Strange Reason, People
Who Visit My Site Will Be Compelled to Read:
- I play keyboards, guitar, melodica, and kazoo (all badly) in my home studio.
- I have used and programmed computers since 1981.
- I dig Penn & Teller, The Monkees, Weird Al, Douglas Adams, Riders in the
- I enjoy useless recreation (theme parks, renaissance festivals, etc.)
- I believe you actually find this information interesting.
- I have too much spare time on my hands (as this site shows).
- Addendum to the above: Since I have not updated this site in several years,
I think it is safe to say that I no longer have too much time on my hands
For some of my writing contributions, check my articles which have appeared
in Uptime, the world of 68' micros, the International OS-9
Underground, and the Atlanta Computer Society newsletter, among
others (including a short blurb in Computer Shopper ages ago when I
"worked" for the GEnie online service).
What else did you expect on such a self-indulging page? Anyone who just
has to put up such a vanity web-page is bound to have some kind of
complex... Or at least live in one.
However, to this date, the fame has yet to go to my head. It's not
like I'm going to run out and form my own club or anything.

Take a look at some of my Al Pals!
After having this page up for years, I thought I should clarify something.
The merchandise I list here is a joke, but it does exist. If anyone ever really
wanted to buy any of it, I'm sure we could work something out :-)
Official Al's Place Merchandise
- Al's Place T-Shirt (White, Full Color, Short Sleeves)
Front has a chest print of "Al's Place" with e-mail address below it, while
back contains a screenshot of the main alsplace.html
entrance page along with the full URL, a review quote (from WebWorx Journal),
and some other gibberish. The perfect way to let the world know you spend
too much time on the 'net! Great gift idea for Christmas, too!

Wear my URL proudly - various designs, including t-shirt back, generic,

design, with URL and e-mail address.
