And here's another that is fun [Morse.or.SMS.flv]:

Dick developed an IBM-370 mainframe instruction emulator that makes it possible to run IBM mainframe programs on other platforms, like Unix and Macintosh systems.  The rights for this emulator were sold to SLAC, and they are using it to run their database systems.  If you're interested in more information, just visit the Unix-SPIRES web site.

Dick also maintains the PL360 programming language compiler. For more information, use the mail link at the end of this web page to send Dick an inquiry about PL360.   You can also view a web-version by clicking on this link.

Dick is also a sleep apnea patient, and has an interesting story about how his condition was diagnosed, and his experience with CPAP masks and nasal pillows. For more information, read this sleep apnea story.

Dick recently attended a MainFrame Retirement Party, and took some pictures.  If you are interested in viewing them, then click on this link.
