Founding member and current President of the Reno Linux Users Group. I have been working on the quicklist project since it started ( We're currently working out bugs for 1.0 and I have various 1.2 feature enhancements rolling around my brain. I've submitted some small feature patches and fixes for various gtk+/gnome applications (think, gimp, glade.) In the mid part of the last year I was writing the gimp-devel kernel cousin. But time constraints and other, more interesting, projects kept coming up so I had to drop it. My real job is systems administrator at Aztech Cyberspace, where I play with mostly Linux systems running Open Source software. Lots of qmail hacks.

Lately been toying with python. It is much fun. Working on a content workflow system.

Ok, now what happens when I do this ...

If all goes well this should be posted to Advogato and to

After 2 years of stagnation, I'm yet another person testing out the XMLRPC stuff here.

Went to the park. Saw Stacy Earle, folk singer chick with band.

Went over to Beto's, the best mexican food in Reno, ate.

Rode my bike and saw The Uninvited.

Good Day.

dyork: I've never seen Beethoven's 9th symphony live, but from the recordings I've heard, I'm sure it's spectatcular. Another large orchestral/choral piece that people should see is Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. That is awe inspiring music.

Last night we had a talk about firewalling and IP Chains. The talk was ok, but the real fun was after the meeting when we headed over to the Silver Peak brewery, sat at the bar talked the future of technology, politics, and the pervasive evil in the nature of man. You know regular stuff.

On attempting to ride my bike home later that night, I continually got my shoelaces tangled in the front gear. It's weird. I ride my bike everyday, and the only time my shoelaces get stuck is when I'm drunk.
