me knotgeek stats Hello, my name is Alan Folsom, and welcome to my web page. I have no idea why you're here, as this page serves no useful purpose other than some tests and links for me, but as long as you are, feel free to look around. If you're looking for the author of several mystery/adventure books, sorry, I'm not the one. Besides, he spells his name with two l's. Revise your search, or try here. If, on the other hand, you are trying to find information on the musician Alan Folsom, try here. I've never met him, but he has a strong resemblance to other Folsom's I know; Probably a distant cousin.

I am 63 (arrghh) years old, and a computer programmer. Until nine years ago I was employed by JMI Software Consultants of Horsham, PA. The economy being what it is, after 14 years I was laid off, and the company folded. After 6 months contract programming for them, I am currently employed by Sapling Inc. I also have a strong interest in the TCL programming language .

In my other life, I have been active as a scout leader, and enjoy playing with knives and knots, cameras, and with outdoor dutch oven cooking. Recently I served as Clerk of Horsham Monthly Meeting of Friends (Quakers). I'm also a Ham Radio Operator (callsign KY3T), and have been known to brew a beer or two. I have three sons, Tom age 35, and the twins, Sam and Ed who are 28. I also have a long suffering wife: Kitty, who puts up with all my hobbies and interests.

RIP Pepper Folsom, 1990-2008.
You have meant so much to all of us.

Should you wish to reach me, either of these email addresses should work. The first is my work email address. The second is my preferred home email address. If you are enquiring about work, the Sapling address is fine.

MY PGP Public key, as well as some information on internet email security, can be found here.

Frustrated by web pages that don't work quite right?
See if they meet the HTML standards here, and let the webmaster know if it's wrong!!

Should anyone be desperate for something to get me, I have an overly extensive wishlist on Amazon. Of course, there is also an "About You" area, should you want to read my one and only review! Buying from Amazon? Please enter their site through this link, and 5% of your purchase price will be donated to help scouts attend summer camp.


And what does the Lord require of you
but to do justly, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God?"
