Sommers-Bausch Observatory - University of Colorado
My many thanks to those who have helped make these pages possible:
Justin Maki and Hanspeter Zink, for putting together a start-up version, including some early photos
Ken Brownsberger, for getting the software up and running at the Observatory
Janet Shaw of CASA for expanding our server system to "lyra", the Sun Sparc 10
- and for her expertise in things general about computers
Former observatory assistant Randy Meisner who, although he didn't work directly on these pages, helped me design, build, and/or modify many of the interesting doo-dads that are discussed herein.
Mary Urquhart's husband, from whom I have shamelessly ripped off some of his exotically complex and undecipherable Unix shell script routines intended for compiling Mary's stats, and have converted them to perform similar miracles for the stats of these SBO pages. Don't ask me how they work, they just do!
Stephanie Fawcett for her time sorting, cataloging, and entering all of our reading room material, and placing it in an on-line format ... and her father Richard Fawcett for setting up the initial software for doing so. And another, more recent round of thanks to Stevi for plowing through and updating the catalogs one more time after we relocated the Reading Room back downstairs to the cosmos computer lab.
The students (especially my former assistant Brian Bailey) and others (such as Bob Ross, Dennis Ward, and Tom Johnston of the Longmont Astronomical Society) whose images have made our Gallery an interesting place to visit.
John Weiss, the APS Department's current (2003) super-TA and perl-programming guru, for a number of exotic scripting features that have made the website more dynamic: the "who's on the telescopes right now" links in SBO-Info, auto-generated header routines, plus a number of scripts (such as on-line telescope logins and automailed malfunction reports) that don't really show up on the webpages, but which make these pages more informative and useful to the user.
Malca Watkins, SBO student intern, Spring 2004, for updating the SBO Links Page from a somewhat antiquated set of dead links to an interesting and fun reference site once again.
