About us: is a fairly small organization: Dale, Coral, two cockatiels, two parakeets, a chinchilla, an African dwarf frog, and an aquatic snail.

Dale's an electrical engineer by training, working as a computer programmer for the Anchorage School District. Coral's also an electrical engineer, but she changed careers and is now the Web Services Librarian at the University of Alaska Anchorage/Alaska Pacific University Consortium Library.

Our Wii friend code is 7214 7976 4589 3382, if you're into that. Dale is mudlock on Xbox. And on Twitter. Coral is @web_kunoichi.

Our shared e-mail is dale (dot) and (dot) coral (at) sheldon-hess (dot) org; you can also email either of us individually by [firstname] (at) We're on Google Talk and Google Plus and various other social services, if you have comments on our website, or if you just want to chat about engineering, libraries, library school, birds, chinchillas, games, books, bikes, life in Alaska, or homebrewing.

Thank you for visiting our site! Feel free to explore the rest of and our other homes on the web:
  • Coral's Homepage - Has her blog (mostly library and craft posts), her CV, and an ever-changing list of projects.
  • The Least of All Evils - Dale's blog (external) about voting methods (our current one isn't good, it turns out).
  • "Moving to Alaska" - Our shared blog (external) about our move here from the east coast and about life in general.
  • Dale's D&D Wiki - World-building for Dale's D&D game.
  • Sheldon-Hess Wedding - Right now, it has a lot of logistics for an event that already happened, but our hope is to share photos and recipes and the like, there, eventually.
