First blog post - testing

I finally got around to installing blog (I hate that word) software. For now, I'm still learning how to use it, but you can expect me to randomly post about computers (software, Linux and programming mostly), music (performance, jazz and big band mostly), and the outdoors (hiking, climbing, search and rescue).

A little about myself: I play saxophone (alto and soprano) and clarinet in the local big band (which I also administer the website and mailing list for) and saxophone (alto, tenor, baritone, and soprano) and percussion (cymbal pit) in the local community orchestra. I've dabbled a very wee bit in music theory and composition, mostly electronica, but would like to get more into that someday.

I'm also a member of the China Lake Mountain Rescue Group. I like to hike, rock climb and backpack, plus it's nice to feel I've helped people.

For my day job, I write software. These days it's mostly C++ and preferably Debian GNU / Linux. I administer my own email and web server (which you're reading this from) and home network, also using Debian.
