Meet Greg Hormann

Well, 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 Read Quad (The rent was cheap, I didn't have to cook, and the T-3 connection to the Internet was free!). Now, I live in Cincinnati, OH. (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.)

FREEBSD LOGO
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.

Yes, 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.

[IU LOGO]

As a full time student at Indiana University in 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 Web.

I guess, if you really want to see a picture 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 visiting!


Projects

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 Computers.

The Wawasee List
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 above link.

CoolDisplays.Net
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 in Indiana.
