Tom Elmer's Homepage

I am turtle, hear me roar!

This page is NOT under construction. It is a dead puppy. (Which, believe me, isn't much fun.) This page is now static except for the addition of quotes once or twice a week. Do not expect workers in hard hats or huge cranes. They have moved on elsewhere as it should be. They are currently constructing a new and improved webpage for the twin of Prometheus. (Coming soon to browsers everywhere.) If you want men in hard hats, buy a Village People album.

These pages are designed so that, with most browsers, as soon as you see this text, all text is displayed and you may stop loading at any time if you do not want to see the graphics.


Just a few helpful links... My Argonne schedule. Also, ways you can contact me.


I really want to know if these pages have problems in any browser. Please send me comments if you find any problems. Be sure to get the latest version of your browser. (For those of you composing webpages, you can check here to see how they look in Lynx.)

I have had so many requests for the background graphics that I've decided to be kind and include links to them on each page. (Look down by my other page links...)

Here's a quote for you:

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy - in fact, they're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil. -Jubal, Strangers in a Strange Land (Robert Heinlein)

   Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist....Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind....I am ashamed to think how easily we capitulate to badges and names, to large societies and dead institutions.
   What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is the harder because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy to live in solitude after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
