Current Activities

I sing in the Chorus of the Genesee, a male barbershop chorus. In addition to working as an assistant section leader, I serve on the Board of Directors and maintain the website and mailing lists for the chorus. I also sing in a quartet called Fever Pitch and maintain the web site.

I have a strong interest in usability issues for the World Wide Web. I have a knack for identifying compatability and accessability issues on web sites. I was an early user of several "alternative" browsers like SlipKnot and lynx, so I have a passion for cross-browser compatability.

I maintain a personal web site with about 400 pages. The biggest section of the site, movie reviews, is generated with a combination of perl and the C preprocessor. The perl script parses a field-value pair file for each movie, generating both pages for the movie and automatically updated index pages.
