This is


Welcome to my web site. I'm Elliott C. "Eeyore" Evans. If you need to send me email, here's the address at which to drop me a line.

This is the latest incarnation of my web site. First, starting back in November of 1994, my web pages were hosted at Ansoft's web site, which I set up and wrote the first pages for. After I left Ansoft in 1995 my pages moved to the Andrew Contrib. Server where they remained for many years. In January of 2002, the CMU English department decided that they no longer wished to sponsor the accounts of people who no longer have any real connection to the university, even though I was reimbursing them for all the fees related to that sponsorship. So, I went out and registered myself a domain through signed up for web hosting and Internet service through Telerama. In 2005, I got sick of Telerama's expensive, underfeatured, unreliable, and poorly supported services, so I moved my web hosting to Speakeasy. Over the years, Speakeasy's hosting business was sold and bought several times until the final owner decided to shut down hosting entirely. I moved my hosting to DreamHost, and here I am! Hopefully, with the domain and all, this is the last URL you will ever need to remember for me, though.

These pages have gone through a lot of changes over the years besides their changes in location. Most of the very old pages are still here, even though they're tagged in version 1 or 2 HTML. Some of them don't have any links pointing to them any more, but if you know what you're looking for, you should be able to find it.

If you want to know more about me, I suggest browsing around in my project pages, or take a look at my resume. If you really want to know everything about me, you should also check out my Sweetie's site. My fianceewife, my sweetie, my happiness, my landlady.

Why Eeyore?

No, it's not because I'm depressed all the time. When I arrived at CMU, (way back when) I was assigned a userid on Andrew. The scheme for assigning userids was as follows:

  1. First initial
  2. Last initial
  3. Two digit ordinal alphanumeric

Apparently, I was the Rth person to have the initials "EE", so mine came out "ee0r". I started signing my email "Eeyore", and geeks being geeks, it stuck. This little story also explains where I got the name for my domain!

As a side effect, it's now easy to buy me presents.
