Bob's Fun Pages

Welcome To BuffPost

A presentation from Robert A. Buffington

About BuffPost

BuffPost is created and written by Robert Buffington, but there are some other people who deserve acknowledgement.

UC San Diego Cloud Strategy & Web Services for the web template.

Joe and Tegan at EPHost for providing hosting services.

Elizabeth Bates, Jeff Elman, Scott Makeig, Carol Padden, Jan Corte, Joanna Mancusi, Shelley Marquez, Janet Shin, Carol Hudson and Amanda Caniglia for providing an enriching environment for education, research, creativity, (personal and professional) development and fun!

David Letterman and Conan O'Brien. This one may seem a little strange, but without those two, I would honestly be one of the most boring people on the planet.

On that note, BuffPost is the new name for Bob's Fun Pages. Don't think that a name change will make these pages less fun!

About Robert

Robert grew up in the Pennsylvania towns of Progress, Colonial Park, Elizabethville and Loyalton. In later years, he managed to escape to California, where he spent one miserable year in Modesto. One year later, his life improved greatly when he moved to Northridge. Fortunately, he managed to move to San Diego area before the Northridge earthquake of 1994, where he had already graduated from UC San Diego. UC San Diego is where he would later become employed as Programmer/Analyst and System Administrator for research laboratories within the organized research units (ORUs) of the Center for Research in Language, Institute for Neural Computation, and Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind.

In his spare time, he enjoys watching movies, listening to music, hiking, biking, and trying to figure out how things work.
