Greetings. My page is a showcase of various items I have spent enough time with to produce an article, invention, applet (none of which are available here anymore, sorry), or whatever. All of my personal pages linked here must adhere to content and style rules set down by the folks who pay the cost of making it available. I'd prefer not giving up desktop real estate to travel bars -- not being a person who frequents bars -- but I'm pleased with the opportunity to make available some of my past work. Delusional perception of fame is a powerful motivator for me.

Many of the links contain an element of mathematics. It has been awhile since I dabbled with fractals, but my favorite fractal creations still look cool.

Trying to figure out if I am the same person as...? For the convenience of people from my past, or the pasts of the dozen other people out there named Tim Greer, here is a brief personal history:

  • Mt. Vernon Twp. High School, Mt. Vernon, Illinois. 1971-1975
  • Silver Dollar City, Branson, Missouri. 1975 (Where by luck rather than talent I spent half the summer playing music with Cotton Combs.)
  • Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, Indiana. 1975-1978 (B.S. Mechanical Engineering)
  • University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois. 1979-1980 (M.S. Industrial Engineering/Operations Research)
  • Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, New York. 1980-1983
  • Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia. 1983-1985 (M.S. Math)
  • North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina. 1985-1986
  • Temp at IBM, Durham, North Carolina. 1987 (My official employer was some agency in Charlotte. I don't recall their name because I never went there or had significant contact with them, other than signing on.)
  • IBM, Endicott, New York 1988-2023
