Signature History (and the Evolution of my E-mail Addresses)

dpsinfo.com sitemap

(partially from my own records, partially extracted from the Google Groups archives)

I've had E-mail since September 1983, and got on the Internet in early April 1988.

Many of my 1988 postings are not in the Google database. I know I was posting quite a lot in 1988 and 1989, but found only a few postings from those years. In the late '80s and early '90s, I was also very active on GEnie, and, from time to time, somewhat active on AOL.

Most of the URLs listed in these signatures have been moved, though a few are defunct; the current locations of many of them are listed at: http://www.dpsinfo.com/coa.html

principle of perfect equality, admitting no power or 
privilege on the one side, nor disability on the other.

And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex 
within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right 
to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. 
You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? 
I would argue yes, it does. It all comes from, I would argue, this right 
to privacy that doesn't exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution
