The Andrew Turnbull Network

Infrequently asked questions

Q: Who are you?
[Andrew Turnbull] A: My name is Andrew Turnbull. This is my corner of the web.

I am a secular humanist, a gay man, and an atheist, and I currently reside in Madison, Wisconsin. I have many interests, but some of the strongest are photography, music, cycling, social justice, and esoteric subjects...you can see a lot of those here. I still do most of my work on a Windows PC; though I'd like to successfully transition to something else someday.

Q: Can I call you "Andy?"
A: I'd rather you didn't.

Q: How can I contact you electronically?
A: You can e-mail me feedback and other correspondence here.
My AOL Instant Messenger and ICQ handles are andrewt3660 and 300868519 if you're into that sort of thing, and I belatedly signed up for Twitter at @AndrewTurnbull.

Q: Are you on Facebook, Reddit, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Vimeo, Google+, or YouTube?
A: No.

Q: How did you create this site?
A: I code all HTML (and CSS) by hand, using a text editor. For the last decade, my preferred application has been a feature-rich (albeit abandoned) editor for Windows called Notespad. I've started working in a little bit of PHP here and there; however, since active pages are more difficult to maintain than static, I've kept it to a minimum. For my own amusement, I phased out most deprecated markup and converted the pages to XHTML.

Q: How long has your site been online?
A: The Andrew Turnbull Network first went live on December 23, 2002. I cringe admitting this, but it started on GeoCities.

Q: Is it just me, or does your website have absolutely no coherent theme?
A: *sigh* Well, I suppose that's one of the perils of having too many interests. At the last time I seriously tried to sort and decant it, the major sections were the (peculiarity that is the) License Plate Gallery, the Mozilla Network, and a little old Third Eye Blind fansite called Lost A Whole Year. After my Firefox enthusiasm waned from version 2.0 on and half the members of the aforementioned band were fired or left to disappear off the face of the earth, the latter two sections became more or less suspended in an abyss of time, and subsequent content additions were a free-for-all.

Since 2008, much of my enthusiasm has shifted to photographic documentation. You can see more of that on my Flickr page (if you can stomach the site's unusable redesign, that is).

Q: Won't you tell me anything else? There's so much I want to know.
A: Sorry. That's all for now...
