A statement about my art…
I’m interested in shapes, colors, textures, light, shadows and abstracts. Instead of seeking out subjects, I try to find these things in my everyday life and capture them as they go by. What seems like another mundane and useless detail in my life can end up being something completely different when seen through a camera.

My Photos Elsewhere?
My images can be found at the following places on the internet. If you’re a member, stop by and say hi!
Windows or UNIX?
FreeBSD is my OS of choice, although I do a lot of Linux and Solaris work. I get paid mostly for Windows XP and Windows 7 support. Come to think of it, Windows95b wasn’t too bad, and it ran on pretty low-end hardware.
Random Facts about me:
I have a huge retro streak in me and love 80′s haircut bands, old industrial music like Front242, FLA and Fortification55, and old-school cyberpunk authors like William Gibson.
I won’t have to worry about losing my hair for several decades.
My favorite science fiction author is Greg Bear.
Hand-hacking web pages is the only way to go. It gives me a whole new appreciation for people who do this full-time.
I’ve given up on two-door cars and own a station wagon. And a Camry. But I’m looking for an old Mercedes Diesel station wagon that doesn’t look like it’s run through Damnation Alley. Twice.
My Current “Drugs” of Choice – Cafe La Llave espresso and Talisker 1987 Distiller’s Edition scotch.
Underworld — Cherry Pie (from the Majestic shoutcast stream) is playing while I write this.
The rest of the static content on this site was written with a variety of text editors, including vi, pico and Notepad. I used to pride myself on only using text editors for web design, but I’ve started using an older version of HomeSite for some layout work, since I can switch between a preview and editing mode.
I use Photoshop and IrfanView like a digital darkroom for sharpening, scanning and saving images to the web. I don’t do any hardcore retouching or adding/removing elements from my pictures, I’ve always thought that part of the thrill of photography was finding art out in the world. Creating an image in Photoshop that wasn’t there to begin with just doesn’t seem very fulfilling to me.
So, why call this blog “poindexter, WHO?”
Poindexter FORTRAN runs realitycheckBBS, a dial-up BBS that pre-dated the Internet. The BBS community is a close-knit one, and many of the callers still know me as “Poindexter FORTRAN”. Without fail, someone will overhear and say “poindexter, WHO?”
Thanks to Christian Void for this page layout. I hate tables.
