Tim Riker World

Tim RikerClick for South Jordan, Utah Forecastsilicon Did you expect something else here? Perhaps http://www.eLinux.org/ or http://www.BZFlag.org/ or http://www.TuxScreen.net/ would work better for you?

I did a bit of research on the first computer I ever worked on. As best I can tell it was an HP-2114B model.

Perhaps you have Brain Power to Spare?

See the Riker Gallery or the pages for Henry Lyon Riker and Cameron Hains Riker.

Welcome to my little piece of the net. One of my popular projects was the TuxScreen WebPhone, a StrongARM based phone with a 640x480x8 touchscreen. I was selling them for $99 but they are gone now.

I am worked with the group that does FamilySearch.org. I was also involved in Genesis Credit and PSNet.

I was a Senior Linux Technologist at Texas Instruments in the Educational and Productivity Solutions division. This is the same group that makes calculators like the current TI-84 Plus Silver Edition and TI-89 Titanium.

I was the CTO at Lineo till they were swallowed up by Metrowerks.

I worked for Caldera back in June of 1999. They announced the aquisition of SCO and in someone's infinite wisdom I was part of the layoffs. One of the projects I did there was to release the iBCS rpms as mentioned at Groklaw

I no longer work for WordCruncher but neither does anyone else. WordCruncher / Logio / Spyhop / PWebWorks / whatever requested that I refrain from any comment.

I used to have a bunch of links to other places here, but I thought it might be easier just to let you see my bookmarks but then I never get around to updating them. I grew up in Rochester, NY. Here's my (basic) resume if you're really interested. You may want to read my LinkedIn profile as well.

I had a virtual office on Diversity University. It's dead now.

You can message me on ICQ. You will often find me online as TimRiker on #BZFlag on irc.freenode.net. There is a web interface on db.BZFlag.org if you don't have an IRC client. Learn more about IRC on IRChelp.org.

My wife and I took a trip to England and France and someday I might put up some other pictures of the trip.

My wife and I took a trip to Hawaii. Looks like you get to see these first. (Right Mahana, you ugly?)

I have a number of versions of the Rikert Rykert Riker Family History my dad is working on. Here is the latest PDF. For reference here is an old version I was working on. Neil Lennertz sent me a different version.

Here is the 1990 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 Convertible I used to own. See what my other car looked like under the hood. Of course there are other vehicles I'd like to own, like a Monster Miata for example. I currenly drive a 1997 BMW Z3

I've been messing with a POP3 Perl script that you can use to check your POP3 mail. User's with local accounts will probably want to use SquirrelMail instead.


Just for fun
