Hooked Through the Eye
I feel like a musky with all the fight gone out of him.» Last night I told one of our front desk clerks/security personnel that they keep me on a short leash, that eight hours a day is most of your life. Aaron replied, Most people don’t realize that and when they do, they’re blown away.
Thank you for your kind words.
In July 2009, I left academia to work as a web developer in the Bay Area. As a non-academic, I no longer provide free consulting and my guess is that you, as an academic, cannot afford my services ($125/hour).
I may one day further detail how I work with EndNote, Tinderbox, and PERL, but am uncertain when this may happen. I will write you when I do.
- The tbx document I used in one of the last classes I taught: "20092eng339.tbx".
- The PERL program I use to convert EndNote exports and generate tbx documents: "tbx".
- The export templates referenced by the documents above.
If you modify and/or distribute any of the attached files, please keep the copyright notices and contact information intact or credit me as appropriate.

A few pointers on using my “tbx” PERL program.
- To generate a “research” Tinderbox document: tbx -r [NEWFILENAME]
- To generate a “teaching” Tinderbox document: tbx -t [NEWFILENAME]
- To generate a “generic” Tinderbox document for web publishing: tbx -g [NEWFILENAME]
- To genrate a Tinderbox document that incorporates an EndNote export: tbx -en [FILETOIMPORT]
- To genrate a Tinderbox document that incorporates an Skim notes export: tbx -skim [FILETOIMPORT]
I really do hope one day to flesh further the skeleton of how I use PERL, Tinderbox, and EndNote to publish to the web. For now, remunerated work isn’t leaving me much room for side research.
