Steve Rowe's Web Presence
This is my non-work-related website. I have been meaning to do
this for a few years now (like 10) but I am just not very good at
writing things down.
First, let me explain the photo. I was in Kuwait
working as a contractor to the United
States Army for a few weeks in
the fall of 2004. While in the desert there, I met a camel.
I call him "Akhmed", and he was with a herd of his pals. Many
camels roam more or less free
in the deserts of northern Kuwait.
They can smell water from about 200 yards away, and will be very direct
in asking for it.
Next, here are some links to people I know: My wife Lisa.
My friend Neil.
And since I don't believe in web pages with no value to the community,
here are some links useful to all the Dungeons and
Dragons players out there. I have taken the D&D System
Reference Document (SRD) version 3.5 and converted it to HTML. I am not the first
person to have done
this. On the other hand, I have stripped out the non-standard
crap that Microsoft
Word injects into an HTML export,
and added many hyperlinks to the
text, making it more useful as an online guide.
I did this by
creating a Perl script to identify
the topics of interest in the text and generate links. That perl
script is HERE. You may download
the resulting bundle as a ZIP
file if you just want the files on your
computer. I have also mashed these pages into Plucker format so
that I can have the SRD and my characters on my Palm or Axim handheld.
The Plucker PDB version of the SRD is here.
