Don S. Bidulock

Welcome to DSB's University of Calgary web site. The purpose of this site is to provide information about Don S. Bidulock who was a Senior Instructor in the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science, and is now retired. A student in the Department in the period 1972 to 1979 and a faculty member in the period 1981 to 2005, I specialized in the teaching of undergraduate courses on imperative language programming (C, Pascal, Fortran), assembly language programming (PDP11, 680x0, 80x86), computer architecture, operating systems, discrete event simulation, and compilers.

Email Contact:

My previous email address dsb@ucalgary.ca can no longer be used. The IT Department at UofC has convoluted their information systems to the point where I have to jump through too many hoops to get to my webmail simply to check it. As a result I have requested that the account be deleted.

I have a number of other email addresses some less volatile than others. If you need to contact me via email try don@dsbhome.ca which uses a domain name that should exist for a long time, likely much longer than any address that some arbitrary ISP can provide since I change them through sheer frustration over levels of service.
