No. It doesn’t. Not with that link.

(Actually, I just realised that I’m mentioned on Google Scholar, too, though not in regards to anything that I’ve really had anything to do with, apart from helping the actual writer clean up the writing and doing a bit of proofreading.)

Why not? I've just aquired them over the years. They all have their specific uses. The Mac mini is my editing machine, the PowerBook G4 is my portable, the Power Mac G4 and iMac G5 I keep at school for editing, the G3s are servers.

I'm not that skinny. I'm just lean and have a decent amount of muscle and not that much fat.
