GreenObjects is not a company. It is a domain which I (Guy Lipof) purchased to house information regarding my programming projects, family information, and brain cancer treatment/ research. All main sections are accessible to public viewing. However, the website's underlying data requires a valid username and password. If you would like access to the site's data, please email me the section(s) you wish to access and why.

Us

We started out in Austin, TX, relocated for five years to Cambridge, UK and are now back in Austin. I graduated from the University of Texas. While going to school I started working in the high tech industry. My career grew from software engineer/ web developer to managing development, quality assurance, and support teams. A little after WhisperWire (one of my past employers) was acquired by Convergys, we were relocated to Cambridge, UK. We saw a good bit of Europe between 2005 and 2010. Our kids kinda grew up there, though our eldest never picked up an accent. You can see information on our travels and photographs via My Blog.

In the mid 90s, I met my wife (Susie Wilson). She was a custom black and white printer for Precision Camera and Video. She had returned to Austin, after living eight years in northern California. Susie has a fine arts degree in Photography. Her focus in life is around family and the arts. Her family is originally from central Texas. Her Grandparents started Callahan's General Store and Capitol Feed and Milling.

We have two children (Gabriel and Pearl). Their first year in Cambridge was hard. They missed their friends and family in Austin. Their second year was easier. They adjusted to the weather and started making stronger bonds with friends. They've enjoyed traveling to see new countries and experience different cultures and languages. Moving back was a bit of surprised. Now, our eldest is studying Bio Medical Engineering at Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo and our daughter is part of Austin High School's Academy for Global Studies.

Server

This site started out as "http://sparcguy.smartdna.com" on my personal UNIX workstation that was colocated at a former employer's office (first at SMART Technologies then at i2). I started using SparcGuy for testing and porting of applications developed in WebObjects (by NeXT/ Apple) from OpenStep and Windows NT to Solaris. But, since my wife's diagnosis of brain cancer, I switched to using SparcGuy for personal record keeping. The original SparcStation 1+ was retired around 2000. The website was then hosted on a PowerMac running OS X Server. It is now being hosted by 1 and 1 Communications.
