Dan Corkill

Welcome to my personal web site, home to my non-professional interests. (Work-related information can be found at http://www.cs.umass.edu/~corkill).


I enjoy playing, collecting, restoring, and maintaining pinball machines. Time demands limit my amount of playing, collecting, restoring, and maintaining pinball machines, but I'm always on the lookout for places to play pinball around the Amherst, Massachusetts area and for machines that might need restoring or a new home. Drop me an e-mail at dancorkill@comcast.net!

By the way, did I mention that I enjoy playing pinball?

The Tiers

The Tiers was a four-person Rock band operating out of Omaha, Nebraska in the late 1960s. This is the only known Web site devoted to this rather obscure band. (Yes, I was a member...)


Others in my family are into horses. (Not everyone in our house is hung up on pinball...!)

Weather in South Amherst

I maintain a personal weather station (PWS) in South Amherst, MA. Here are the detailed weather connditions in South Amherst.

Three-Player “Dummy Hand” Spades

I enjoy playing card games, especially Contract & Duplicate Bridge and Spades. Sometimes it's hard to find a fourth for these games, and I've become particularly fond of “Dummy Hand” Spades, a 3-player, cut-throat version of regular 4-player Spades.
