• MY GRAND PLAN: To fix up this web page (slowly but surely)! [There is no longer any incentive to do this now since CSE emeritus faculty web pages have been disconnected from the department web page as of the 2013-2014 academic year.]

  • CURRENTLY: Long since gave up on 3x3 Busy Beaver problem and conceded to the astounding progress by others. My most recent interest has been the behavior of TurNing Machines. The results I obtained were never posted, but I will post what I find when and if I get back to implementing my ideas for an automated balanced search of the generation tree on a cluster of networked computers (See http://www.cse.unr.edu/~al/TurNingQuestion.html e.g.)

  • AS A RESULT: Am spending late night hours cursing gcc on my iBook G4 and sometimes watching Craig Ferguson on Late Late TV for comic relief.
