What I Did

If you've found this page looking for the Xvoigt astronomical absorption line fitting program I wrote: It is badly out of date and there are better programs available these days. Try vpguess.

Awards and Nominations

I acted in the part of Han Solo for a segment* of the Star Wars: Uncut project, which won the 2010 Emmy Award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media - Fiction.

* Scene 307: The Death Star detention block corridor just before jumping into the garbage chute. My line was, "Get in there!" (We also filmed Scene 237, where I got to say, "Ancient weapons and hokey religions are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.")

Erdős-Bacon Number: 6

Erdős Number: 4

Bacon Number: 2

Sabbath Number: 5

** The song Line and Length contains the lyrics:

The line of a delivery is the direction of its trajectory measured in the horizontal axis.
The length of a delivery is how far down the pitch towards the batsman the ball bounces.
These are from the Wikipedia page for Line and length, which I created. I added the lines in the lyrics in this edit on 6 November, 2005.

My listed Erdős-Bacon-Sabbath Number is 16, but I've reduced its Sabbath Number by 2, so it should be 14.
