Welcome to my Website!

My wife Heather and I live in Santa Cruz, California, along with a wide variety of flora and fauna, which we enjoy very much. The weather is pleasant with the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay nearby, not to mention the beaches and hillsides that range from chaparral to live oak to dark redwood forest environs.

Donate to Team Boxer Rebellion

You can donate any amount to Team Boxer Rebellion.  Donations help me offset the cost of running in the 2012 Motorcycle Cannonball, which is considerable.  Things like oil, gas, the diesel fuel to run my chase van, the Cannonball entry fee and all of the hotel and meal expenses for Team Boxer Rebellion make this a very expensive endeavor. 

Every donor will be highlighted on my website.

I really appreciate your donation to Team Boxer Rebellion. Any amount is helpful! Thanks very much!

Computers

Mon, 03/19/2012 - 10:30 -- darryl

I've been programming computers since I was in the tenth grade -- which wasa in 1973.  I was able to learn BASIC at my high school and APL and FORTRAN at the local junior college.  My first job was writing PL/I and soon I was working on compilers.  From there, I went on to Unix kernel work (I worked on the original 386 Unix port) and then on to networking (I have a couple patents on Network Plug and Play).

Now I am into web development.  I've been writing websites for a decade or more, but in 2007 I stumbled into Drupal and have been generally focused there, since.

You can find out more about my technical history and interests in this track on my website.

Motorcycling

Mon, 03/19/2012 - 10:31 -- darryl

Although I grew up in the 70s in Southern California, I was never into cars or motorcycles.  Sure, I got my license the day I turned 16, but that was necessary just to get around The Valley and LA.  When I started learning and working in computers, I met and befriended Rick, an older guy (like, about 5 years older!) who introduced me to motorcycles, and not just motorcycles, but BMW motorcycles, and eventually I owned one.  I have been in love with motorcycling ever since. 

Rick also gave me my first vintage BMW.  It was a pile of parts, and I didn't do anything with it for about 10 years, but when I did, I found a whole new fascination.  Now I am heavily involved with the Vintage BMW Motorcycle Owners club and am getting ready to participate in the Motorcycle Cannonball run from New York to San Francisco on pre 1930 bikes in Spetember of 2012. 

You can find out more about my obsession with motorcycles in this track off my website.

Other Stuff

Mon, 03/19/2012 - 10:33 -- darryl

I have, and have had, other interests and also want to talk about some personal things.  My wife Heather, who is an intense glass artist, for example.  Or the 15 years when I was deeply into homebrewing beer.  Or Other Stuff.

Read about it in this track!
