Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    Wholly unrelated; but I wanted to share this, as this is one of my favorite pieces:
    Mateo Albéniz (not Isaac Albéniz), Sonata in D, as rendered by John Williams.
    I love Williams’ tone and articulation, but there is somethign about this piece that really grabs me.
    FWIW (not Buffalo Springfield)Report

    I want to save this until I have time to listen to it all the way through in one sitting. I’m afraid I might miss something if I listen to it piece-meal.Report
