"...My continuing mission: to seek out knowledge of PS, PDF, C++ and ObjC, to explore strange unix commands, and to boldly code where no one has man page 4."

Hello ye who entered here. These are my private pages here on Feel free to browse around and have a nice time. This place is called 'Area 51' because of its arcane contents in the NeXTSTEP (the OS 'before' MacOS X) areas, some of this is not available anywhere else anymore.

In some respect these pages resemble the Warehouse at Area 51 but there is also new stuff to be found.
