Tom Ligon's Home Page

This is the home page of Tom Ligon, the science fiction author and Polywell Fusion (r) advocate. If you are looking for the actor, or another Tom Ligon, keep looking. As I build the website, I'll try to provide links to other Tom Ligons. If you are one, and would like your link posted here, just let me know.

Welcome to the plainest web page on the internet. I own the domain name and my hosting company does not stick ads in. You will notice that I tend to keep things simple -- no pop-ups, no animation, no gratuitous eye-candy, and minimal pictures. Some of my friends and neighbors, particularly those in West Virginia, don't have DSL, cable, FIOS, or the latest equipment. I believe the internet is for information, and usually the best way to convey information is text. This site is designed to load fast, navigate quickly, and to have keywords that are easily found by search engines. It is written in early HTML, with some old-school .pdf files, hopefully readable by almost any equipment that will still run today.

This is a new website, based on my old one at Angelfire.com. I started posting on June 2009, with a major overhaul in November 2012. Sorry about the old website ... I lost the password after I discontinued using CompuServe, so there was no way to get back in to update it or shut it down.

This site contains information on:

My Motto:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, pitch manure, solve equations, analyze a new problem, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Specialization is for insects.
