Thanks for the comment about the Mozart piece.  Are you old enough to get
the joke in the "album title" ?

Avoiding "dungleflungies" is why when I get a configuration working (in
this case a Debian Squeeze cluster with around 3k cores), I don't mess
with it.  Although I use the Debian Squeeze versions of Audacity quite a
lot for final mastering, I haven't seriously used Ardour in years.  For
me, the interface is non-intuitive and the set-up is painful.

With respect to music, math, language, and programming: I'm "good" at math
(you can Google that one ;-) and "decent" at music.  I used to be a
reasonable programmer but most of my skills there have been overtaken by
more modern object oriented programming languages.  I've never been good
at languages, at least relative to my friends who seem to all speak a half
a dozen, understand a dozen more, and read several dozen.  The human
language guys seem to be the same ones who are good at machine languages
as well.  No wonder they are fully international, they can run a
programming team anywhere from anywhere.
