Pursuant to a good suggestion from Slashdot, I'm removing it.
How's this: if you're human and not a bot, notice my name, take the hint that I patronize a large search corporation for my communications needs, and GUESS MY E-MAIL!
Now there's a Turing Test...

Education:

Current Work:
I'm kind of the "engineering technical head" (read: guy that's been doing it longest) for the small group of engineers and and finance experts called the "Asset Management" group for "Infrastructure Planning". We plan the strategy for replacing and rehabilitating Calgary's Water and Sewers underground infrastructure. We manage projects to determine the actual state of our mains through non-destructive testing, do forensic analyses of pieces of mains and valves removed for replacement, and comb through the databases we develop to decide where to best spend the millions of dollars budgeted each year to keep the water system in good shape. With the amalgamation of Engineering groups from Waterworks and Sewer into "Water Resources" in 2005, it's now our job to do this for all three pipe systems, and eventually help the "AM" strategy for the plants, as well...a total infrastructure with a replacement value of $30B.

Home:
Besides hiking the mountains, and skiing whenever we can afford it, my main hobbies can all be summarized as "collecting a library", not just books, but comics, pictures, CD's, videotapes, CD-ROMs, and now computer files of text, sound, and pictures.

I live in Calgary in a house with a wonderful view of the Bow River Valley.
