Just registered today after stumbling onto one of the blogs.

Definitely some useful info here and knowledgeable geeks.  Awesome site.  But I have to be careful about spedning too much time here

I have to get back to work now but I will be back!  With questions!

My geek interests are in music production and smart use of technology generally. 

I chose foobar2000 as my username because it represents well the qualities I use to choose software

- customisable
- small
- open source, preferably
- keyboard shortcuts
- straightforward GUI (or CLI)

I chose Xtra as my high speed internet provider because I didnt know any better!  :)
