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. I have many interests, but some of the strongest are photography, music, local history, cycling, social justice, and the act of organizing information.

[Map of places past]

Since escaping small-town life in 2003, I've moved to a succession of cities; each one bigger than the one before. As of 2017 I am living in Canada, pursuing a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science.

Q: How come you no longer live in West Virginia?
A: This is why. This is why, too. (And no, I doubt I'm ever going back.)

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

Q: Are you on Facebook, Reddit, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Vimeo, Snapchat, 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. My preferred application is a feature-rich (albeit abandoned) editor for Windows XP and earlier called Notespad. I've started working in a little bit of PHP here and there; however, since active pages are more frustrating to maintain than static, I've kept it to a minimum. For my own amusement, I phased out most deprecated markup ages ago and converted the pages to XHTML. Now, I'm patiently waiting for the rest of the web to do the same thing...

Note: I've discovered that some of the divs break on Firefox 3 and Opera 11. The very same divs render correctly on Firefox 2 and Opera 9; so either browser makers are slipping regressions into their products left and right, or the CSS standards are shifting underneath my feet.

Q: How long has your site been online?
A: The Andrew Turnbull Network first went live on December 23, 2002...on GeoCities! Enough time has passed that I no longer feel cringey admitting that.

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 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.

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