Meet Greg Hormann
After graduating from Indiana
University with a BS degree in Computer Science, I moved out to
Cincinnati, OH to assume a position with
Procter & Gamble. After eleven years of support the Pharmaceutical
Business, I started working for
Warner Chilcott as part of the
P&GP divestiture. But by March,
Warner had decided to consolidate its offices in New Jersey. I did some independent consulting for a few months and then rejoined P&G.
At present, I oversee the high performance computing
infrastructure used by R&D and Engineering.
While at IU,
I lived in
(The rent was cheap, I didn't have to cook, and the T-3
connection to the Internet was free!). Now, I live in
(The mortgage is expensive, the wife or I have to cook, and
the slower Internet connection cost more than I care to think about!
-- There are definitely a few things I miss from college.)
The image on the left is the FreeBSD mascot. FreeBSD is a UNIX like operating
system for Intel hardware (much like
Linux). I have used FreeBSD for over
10 years on servers at on the home network.
Jim Riffle turned me on to it.
I find it much more stable than Linux for my servers, but I still use
Ubuntu Linux on my desktop and laptop.
In case you can't tell by that huge image on the right, I am an
Eagle Scout. I became an Eagle Scout on March 24, 1994
from Troop 726
North Webster, IN. After earning my Eagle, I also spent 3
summers working as an Assistant Scoutmaster.
As a full time student at Indiana
Bloomington, I completed a Computer Science BS degree, a minor in
Mathematics, and a minor in Cognitive Science. I also worked as an
Undergraduate Teaching Instructor for A115: Working the World Wide
I guess, if you really want to see a
of me, you can. Sorry Girls, I am all ready
taken. My wife, Mary, graduated from IU and now
is a full time mommy to Emily and Matt.
That is about I can think of right now, before you leave, be sure to
scan over my current projects. Thanks for
I have just a few big computer related projects going on right now,
- Computer Controlled Christmas Lights
- Lots of my friends think I'm crazy, but I've recently found a way
to combine two of my favorite hobbies: Outdoor Christmas Lights and
- The Wawasee
- The Wawasee List contains the names, email addresses, URLs, and
comments about many graduates of Wawasee High School, Syracuse IN. I
founded this list in the fall of 1994 with just 10 entries, it has now
grown to well over 900! For more information about the list, take the
A directory for outdoor holiday lighting displays helping visitors find near by holiday displays of interest. This directory works similar to Wiki and should be thought of as a collection of web pages that anyone can edit.
- Open Directory Project
- "Because Humans do it Better"
The Open Directory Project is the largest, most comprehensive human-edited
directory of the Web. It is constructed and maintained by a vast, global
community of volunteer editors. I currently
edit regional localities
