Hi, my name is Robert Lentz, and I am a Webaholic with homepagitis

I am a Macophile and a Mac Guru.
Computers hold great potential as tools. Unfortunately most programs are written by people who see computers as a way of life instead of a tool, molding themselves to the computer instead of insisting that the computer mold itself to them. This is often reflected in a poor, sometimes non-existent, Human Interface.

I was born into the Space Age and am always gazing upward.
As part of this, since 1989 I have been a Senior Associate member of the Space Studies Institute.

I used to be a Boy Scout, now I am just a Romantic.
Oh, for an Enchanted Evening...

I am a bibliophile.
This always makes moving such a joy... now if only I did not have to sleep so I could get all my books read.

I am currently Cybertalk columnist for the Daily Northwestern.

Conjuction junction, what's your function?

My musical tastes are difficult to quantify...
My favorite pop artist is Peter Gabriel; I consider Passion to be his best work. I also like classical music and am trying to explore that area more. I am also trying to explore my jazz tastes (so far, it seems I lean towards the blues). Other artists I enjoy include: Sinead O'Connor, Vangelis, and I have recently (finally) discovered Kate Bush.

I bike to work...
...and most anywhere else.

While I can appreciate watching a good game, I would much rather be playing...
Sports I do play include: softball (a fast glove and good jump on the ball from third base), football (becoming a possession receiver), basketball (someone who actually knows how to play defense), ultimate (find me long), volleyball (yup, that is me on the floor), racquetball (on the floor for those tough shots again), and others.
