AOLserver (February 1997-February 1999)

AOLserver is America Online's web server software, which lies behind websites such as,,,, as well as many large sites on the net such as AOLserver handles tens of thousands of hits per second at AOL.

AOLserver was originally NaviServer, a product of NaviSoft), and was acquired by AOL. When the California development office was shut down only one of the NaviServer staff came to the East coast, so a new team was formed to maintain and extend the software

I was the technical lead for AOLserver after it was moved to the East coast and handled all of the day-to-day details of support, development, and maintenance (with emphasis on the support and maintenance). I shepheared AOLserver from release 2.1 through 2.3.3.

Tools Development

I was chief architect for the Macintosh Rainman tool. Rainman is AOL's proprietary templating-based publishing system. At the time, the only interface to Rainman was via emailing text scripts to a robot process and monitoring return email. The Rainman tool provided a visual interface to this publishing process.

List Manager

The Galaxy list manager is a trio of objects in the Galaxy library. One, the list, is a dynamic 2-dimensional table data structure of arbitrary size and customizable data representation. The second is the list selection, which implements a logical set of list cells that are selected. The third, the list view, is a scrolling table displaying the data contained in a list. The listview supports varying row heights/column widths, row/column rearranging, as well as providing complete control over cell drawing and selection logic.
