The Brettish Empire. I created this site and maintained it for the first four years of its life, but it's now maintained by Lisa Oldham. Lisa has been Author/Editor of TBE since its beginnings as an email newsletter.
This is where you'll find notes, disclaimers, and such.

Items I maintain are marked "".
I used to mark recently new and updated items with little
"New" and "Updated" graphics. But I'm not doing that any more.
For a while, I thought maybe I would replace it with something, but that
hasn't happened. So I guess you're on your own for new or updated items.
When I started developing this page, I generally used Netscape as a browser.
Occasionally I viewed it in lynx. Then I went to Internet Explorer.
Then I went back to Netscape again. Then, well you get the idea.
Hopefully it's mostly viewable in
I try to keep the sections rather smallish to make it easier
to get to things. The idea is to make each section fit on the screen at
once (originally, it was 800x600 resolution; it goes up over time).
As I further subdivide some of the sections,
the distinctions can become a little arbitrary. Hopefully not so much that
you can't find things. Let me know if you have any major problems.
For most of its life, this page was edited with the
likes of Windows Notepad and Windows WordPad. For the longest time, I couldn't
find an editor I liked enough to actually pay for, or a free one that was worth the price.
I tried to get Netscape's editor to happily change my page, without success.
I've been using HomeSite for a while now. HomeSite
has some problems, but so far I've not had a major problem with it breaking my pages, like
I have with about every other editor I've tried.
This site went several years without any significant updates, mainly because I didn't
have a good deployment mechanism. Manually updating with ftp (even drag-and-drop ftp) is
not fun, to say the least. I'm now using a more or less automated system, which seems to be
working out ok.
This whole deal started as kind of a universally accessible

I'm in the Amazon.com Associates Program. I joined about seven years after I started the web page, so it's not like selling books is my motivation here.

About Jeff Wolfe
I'm a full-time computer consultant,
part-time developer, and full time computer junkie (aka nerd), who spends
far too much time online. When I'm not online, I enjoy reading, pencil
puzzles, juggling, playing
cards (mostly euchre). More recently, I've gotten involved in politics.
I haven't decided if that's a good thing or not.
In 2000, I ran for Franklin County Commissioner. The archive of
my campaign web site is still available. The old location of my campaign web site is now a generic political web site.
A photo of me. A better photo is available on my campaign web site (linked above).
Living in Columbus, Ohio, with the name "Wolfe" has its drawbacks.
People who meet me often ask if I'm related to the family that owns several
local broadcast and print media outlets. The answer is no. But if you're
ever in Utah,
visit the Wolfe Ranch,
which was started by my great-great-grandfather.
I've submitted some jokes to rec.humor.funny
over the years, and several have been accepted. The ones I've been able
to find in the RHF archives
are all political. Imagine that! On further examination, they're all Clinton
jokes. Yeah, I know; that's redundant.
And I had a joke called "You're so good at it...." in a Political
Digest (it's at the very bottom). From September of 1996.
One joke they don't seem to have was about someone concerned their job would be exported to Mexico if NAFTA passed (which it eventually did, of course). They worked for the city of Chicago. I originally saw it told as a true story by a member of Congress appearing on a news program on television.
Another joke they don't seem to have is about my grandfather getting a letter from a charity around April of 1994 saying, "Wondering why we haven't heard from you." He died in January. Of 1992. I can update the joke by saying that a couple of years later, he got another letter just like it. And he still occasionally gets junk mail to this day. From charities I'll now never support because I know they spend all their money soliciting contributions from dead people.
