Using a cellular modem in 1998

Perched on a rock on a hiking trail high atop the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, Carlson checks his e-mail via cellular modem in July 1998. The connection was 4,800 bps.

I have too many hobbies. Among them is woodworking. Above is my first major project, a cedar chest made of cherry and red oak lined with aromatic western red cedar. At left, is my reproduction of a Shaker clock. It's made of solid tiger maple from Pennsylvania and took almost a year to build. Next up is a new computer desk.

My Mini

Another hobby is sports cars. This is my 2004 MINI Cooper S. It's actually quite a bit larger inside than it looks. I fit just fine, and I'm 6'3." The car has decidedly male characteristics so his name is Alice (Cooper). His license plate reads "META TAG."
