The StrictlyNormal crew is Andria Thomas and Aaron Datesman.   Well, OK, we're not a "crew" in any reasonable sense, that is, not a road crew, or a ship's crew, a sanitation crew or the counter crew at Hardee's.  As of May 30, 2002, we might be considered a crew in the sense that we're husband and wife. 

We're also neither strict nor normal. All the other domain names were taken.

Who we are.  Some information about us.  Why the layout of this site is so awkward.  Lastly, our sure-fire system for winning the lottery.

Aaron is in the rather final stages of earning a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Virginia.  His research involves the construction of superconducting receiver arrays for terahertz radio astronomy.  (To find out more, click here.) 

Andria is a student pursuing a dual MBA/MS in Public Policy at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where we both now live. You can read her student journal entries to get the inside scoop on how student life is going.

The layout of this site is so awkward because Aaron, despite one degree in physics and a second in electrical engineering, is a complete nimrod where computers are concerned.  Andria is wholly responsible for the existence of our site, but is way too busy supporting Aaron to worry much about its contents!

The comment is not original with me, but the lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math.  Please raise my taxes and hire better teachers instead!
