About the Man Eating Tiger Page
  The name is admittedly pedantic. It is meant to illustrate the need to hyphenate compound adjectives. If you aren’t familiar with that concept, here’s a brief tutorial: A “man eating tiger” is a man who is eating tiger meat. A “man-eating tiger” is a ferocious tiger that eats people. This gives you the foundation that you need to study this subject in depth, which you should do at your earliest opportunity.  
  The photographs that appear on this site are made with both old-fashioned film cameras and digital cameras. The film cameras that I still use sometimes are a pair of Nikon F3’s, which are 35mm single-lens-reflex (SLR) cameras. Some of the older photos in the Gallery were made with with Canon and Topcon SLR cameras. Early astrophotographs were made with either the Nikon F3 or an Olympus OM-4 (that I used to own) mounted on a Questar telescope. Sometimes the camera looks through the telescope, as with early photos of the Moon; other times, it rides piggyback on the telsecope so that the telescope’s clock drive can keep it aimed at a fixed point in the heavens while the earth rotates. Here is how I make my astrophotos today. Underwater photos, if any, were made with inexpensive Kodak single-use waterproof cameras. The digital photos (i.e., almost all of the photos nowadays) are mostly made with either a Canon 40D or a Canon 20D, though some come from a Nikon D100; the oldest digital photos were made with a Kodak DC-120 or a Nikon Coolpix 990. The flashes I use are a Nikon SB-11, a Nikon SB-80DX, a Canon 580EX, and a Norman studio flash. When necessary, I digitize conventional photos with either an Epson flatbed scanner or a Nikon film and slide scanner.  
  Putting it together: This site is made on Macintosh computers. My main “desktop” Mac is a 17" MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM, more than a terabyte of storage, and a 30" Cinema Display. One of my former “desktop” Macs was a PowerBook G4 Titanium with a gigabyte of RAM and dual displays. My wife uses a Dual G5 with 23" and 17" displays. I also use a 24" Intel iMac, a 15" MacBook Pro, the old PowerBook G4 Titanium, and an old (but still useful) G3/300 “WallStreet” PowerBook. All are running Mac OS X. In addition, the two MacBook Pro’s have Windows XP Pro installed. Our wireless network consists of these six Macs and three network printers. The wireless network runs on three AirPort Extreme Base StationsI use several software applications to create and maintain this site. The html is prepared mainly with Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, with Bare Bones Software’s BBEdit in a supporting role. The photographs are managed by Aperture and they are edited and prepared for the web using Adobe Photoshop CS3. Other applications that I use, or have used, to create and edit content for this site include Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Apple QuickTime Pro, ACD Canvas, Macromedia Freehand, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Word.
