What's New

April 13, 2007

     I deeply regret to find that Dr. H. Don Scott has passed. He is one of the few men I know who truly deserve the term "gentleman". He meant a great deal to me at a very dark time in my life. If he had not given me a place to work as his Technical Assistant at the University of Arkansas, I might never have come out of a very deep depression. He put up with my often bizarre behavior and gave me a reason to get up in the morning and get on with my life. Where many others would have tossed me aside, he gave me the space, grace and understanding I needed to survive. A lot of my published research product owes him that debt, which I can never repay. I hope it will not do him any dishonor to dedicate this research and tutorial web site to his memory. I wrote many of the tutorials here on soil physics, Richards equation and finite differences, while working for him. Students from as far away as Indonesia and France still visit them, and these tutorials would never have existed without his support.

Note: This is not the web site for Ballard's Frame Distributors. The robots that free directories use to search the net for filler material aren't very smart.

  This is a time-line of what has been added to the site since September 2000. Due to lack of research support, it has not been significantly updated since the date at the top. The Author is currently on disability, and working to become productive in other areas. As of June 12, 2004, the visits per month were running from 6,000 to 12,000, including robots and crawlers. Somewhat less now, but about four to six thousand a month, peaking during the Northern Hemisphere winter. Removing agents and referrers, the number of unique sites visiting per month is about 1/4 of those numbers.
