GNU Service Directory

This is a list of people who have asked to be listed as offering
support services for GNU software, including GNU Emacs, for a fee
or in some cases at no charge.

The information comes from the people who asked to be listed;
we do not include any information we know to be false, but we
cannot check out any of the information; we are transmitting it to
you as it was given to us and do not promise it is correct.
Also, this is not an endorsement of the people listed here.
We have no opinions and usually no information about the abilities of
any specific person.  We provide this list to enable you to contact
service providers and decide for yourself whether to hire one.

Before FSF will list your name in the GNU Service Directory, we ask
that you agree informally to the following terms:

1. You will not restrict (except by copyleft) the use or distribution
of any software, documentation, or other information you supply anyone
in the course of modifying, extending, or supporting GNU software.
This includes any information specifically designed to ameliorate the
use of GNU software.

2. You will not take advantage of contact made through the Service
Directory to advertise an unrelated business (e.g., sales of
non-GNU-related proprietary information).  You may spontaneously
mention your availability for general consulting, but you should not
promote a specific unrelated business unless the client asks.

Please include some indication of your rates, because otherwise users
have nothing to go by.	Please put each e-mail address inside "<>".
Please put nothing else inside "<>".  Thanks!

For a current copy of this directory, or to have yourself listed, ask:

** Please keep the entries in this file alphabetical **

    I have B.A. and M.A. degrees in Computer Science and have completed
    all but the dissertation for a Ph.D. in C.S.  My research for my
    Ph.D.  is in the areas of logic, type systems, and programming
    language theory.  My primary programming languages are Emacs Lisp,
    Perl, and Bourne shell, but of course I can program in any language.
    I have written numerous Emacs Lisp packages.  I started the USENET
    "List of Frequently Asked Questions about GNU Emacs with Answers" and
    maintained it for more than two years.  Most of my work has been
    related to the telephone system (modems, voice mail, etc.), but I am
    not limited to that.  Send e-mail for my complete resume or curriculum

Programs supported:
    GNU Emacs and Taylor UUCP:
      Installation, training, customization, bug fixing, troubleshooting,
      extension, development, porting, or answering any kind of question.
    Any other GNU program:
      The same things, but I don't necessarily have huge amounts of
      experience with the particular program.

Working conditions:
    I am usually available for part-time work (less than 20 hours per week
    including any travel time).  I can sometimes make time for full-time
    work for a month or two; please inquire.  I can either work in or near
    Boston or via the Internet or via telephone; travel outside the Boston
    metropolitan area can be negotiated.  My schedule is very flexible.
    Any programs I write will normally have the copying conditions of the
    GNU General Public License; this is negotiable.

Rates: $65/hour as an independent contractor.
       travel and telephone expenses.
       higher rates if extensive travel is required.
