Just the latest edition of the FOS website. It will probably change often as it is now a hobby and not job related. I have always enjoyed working with wiki software and pmwiki in particular. It allows web based changes without carrying around expensive web development systems such as Adobe Dreamweaver. Pmwiki is a flat file text based system that conforms to my keep it simple philosophy.

This site is low vision friendly. You can increase the text size with the + button at the top of the left side bar. It is also designed to work well with screen readers.

My interests include the development of Interactive Learning based on the interactive fiction model. You can get an idea of what I have in mind by visiting the first page of Fos Adventuers. (I am working with several interactive text based adventure authoring systems such as Inform 7, Tads 3, and Twine. I hope to achieve a balance between ease of use and the development of abstract thinking.)

In recent times I have done little more than add interesting links to this site. It now seems to be a We Blink. That is what I call a web link farm. Now that I am retired, I hope to spend more time pro-actively developing content. I have now retired and need to do more. From the shared links, you can deduce my interests. As I have throughout my life, I hope to do better! Thank you, Fos1

FOS Gopher Site - (Requires Firefox with Overbite or lynx on the command line.)

It is best to view this website with Mozilla Firefox with the Overbite extension that includes support for the Gopher internet surfing protocol. Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, and Google Chrome no longer support this protocol. The command line web browser "lynx" can also be used for general web surfing and provides Gopher support. Lynx also provides excellent support for Text To Speech (TTS) services required by low vision users.(Installation instructions for Lynx and Firefox is available in the Open Source area of our discussion forum.)
