I'm a programmer and mostly inactive user. I created my account on Wikipedia on October 23, 2004. After seeing a year's worth of my work here erased piecemeal through the churn of the deletionists, I walked away in frustration. I still pop on from time to time to check in and make the occasional fix to articles I'm browsing. I still use Wikipedia almost every day as a reader, but my days of being an active editor are essentially over. I've left my user page pretty much intact.

I think my most lasting contributions are copyleft images I added to the commons. You can see my photos under the Photographs I've taken section. If you would like me to relicense any of my media contributions under a new license, please contact me and I'd be happy to cooperate.

Ignace-Gaston Pardies (1636–1673) was a French Catholic priest and scientist. His celestial atlas, entitled Globi coelestis in tabulas planas redacti descriptio, comprised six charts of the night sky and was first published in 1674. The atlas uses a gnomonic projection so that the plates make up a cube of the celestial sphere. The constellation figures are drawn from Uranometria, but were carefully reworked and adapted to a broader view of the sky. This is the first plate from a 1693 edition of Pardies's atlas, centred on the north celestial pole and depicting part of the northern sky. An index of constellations is provided in the left and right margins, in Latin and French, respectively.Map credit: Ignace-Gaston Pardies
