Welcome to my web site!

My name is Stuart Baker. Like most people, I have more than one side: a work side and another side. For nearly 30 years I have been in the business of making machines work and plants grow for people at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

For the past twenty years I have focused on building a computer network, maintaining a full range of network services, and providing user support for 500 individuals in 3 departments. Success at this sort of endeavor requires a full time commitment (24/7/365). So for thirty years the work side has dominated my attention.

I have divided this site into two parts: "Two Sides of Stuart Baker". Now that I have 'retired', the work side is fading as I enthusiastically explore my 'other side' interests.

    A few instructions:
    • To move from one side to the other simply click on the right face or the left face at the top of this page.
    • If you'd rather search (for me?), click the picture of my empty office (I have retired and no longer work there).
    • I've added some notes on the construction of this site in the "Notes on this site" page.

Thanks for stopping.

Have fun!
