While other pages certainly allude to the big humble bone in my body, this page deals entirely with me. What I do, who I do it with, how I do it, where I do it and little smidgens of why, if I get that figured out. And, for historical purposes, rendered entirely in last summer's "chrome" look.
A mere systems specialist in a small company, run by great people with great co-workers. And T1 net connectivity. Could one ask for more? A nice cappucino machine maybe...What we do is exceedingly simple in concept, we take internet based email and gate it off to LAN-based email systems, such as MS Mail and cc:Mail. Sounds simple, but, it's tougher than you might think.
About once a month for the radio show, and six times for the TV show, I was/continue to be a live guest for Steve Dotto's shows. I'm usually blathering on about technical issues, primarily internet related. Steve has been piles'o'fun to work with so I'm hoping to keep doing this when the next TV season starts... email Steve and tell him how wonderful you think I am. The picture below was snapped during the Feb 14th show that I did. Note the rugged good looks and twinkle of intelligence behind the ape eyes...
Somewhere within this site, they mention that they have an "everchanging line up of guest musicians" Once in a while, when luck shines my way, I get to be one of these. It usually involves bribing my brother in some manner. I was also lucky enough to be a part of Roots Roundup for almost 3 dance filled years. Compared to the roots years, I now travel rather lightly, relying upon a Gallien-Krueger ML S 120 watt stereo head, 2x12 stereo cabinet and a BOSS stereo chorus through the effects loop. Guitars are now down to two, my oddly colored Fender Stratocaster, which is sort of a bluish tiger stripe maple and an old, battered white Larivee Strat custom which served my admirably througout 200-300 some odd Roots Roundup shows.
We have THREE of these litte, furry, idiots...Kitaro, who I have had for about 6 years, has managed to rack up a pretty serious bunch of vet bills of the last year. Someone, she had come to the conclusion that kitty kidney failure was a goal worth aspiring to, as she had already conquered the 24 hour sleep/supper/shit ritual. We like to think that she was worth fixing up, but she has been known to prove us wrong at times. Mitzi, her sister, aquired about month after I got Kitaro, is much more pleasant, but is renowned for eating too much and following it up with a quick bulimic episode, usually right in front of us, as if we are impressed by such behaviour. And then there is Pixel, the little tortoise-shell hellion we got on our wedding day last year. The vet insinuated that she might be a little agressive, and well, yes, she often is. But, she's a charmer none the less.
