All my new stuff is on my wiki. Most of the pages are out of date; check the dates on the bottom of the pages. If a page is more than 7 years old, I'm a PhD-equivalent smarter now.   If you watch average amounts of TV, you may be one PhD dumber.

I run Linux, on my modified Thinkpad T60. Here's another good reason for Linux! Why open source? Linux related bookmarks.

My IC design business, KLIC. A chip ID business, SiidTech. Wrong keithl? Try here.

Folks I hang out with:
The Portland Linux/Unix Group meets 3 times per month, for general, advanced topics, and computer clinic activities. I'm not much of a programmer, but I respect those who are very good at it. Hackers invent amazingly novel software. They are not Crackers, who attack other people's computers. This is the hacker emblem: hacker emblem What we know, together. Wikipedia Affiliate Button
