Welcome to my blog!

As I mentioned on the “Home” page, my name is Jim Bearden, and I’m currently living iin the Sierra Nevada in California, in an almost mile-high house (5200′) right next to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Most of the stuff that I think you’ll find interesting here will be under the other major headings (Music, Photography, and Software), and this “Blog” area will be random entries on whatever current events happen to be of interest to me, and maybe to you. You’ll notice that most of the other pages have a place to enter questions or comments — I’ll probably use this space for any answers that I think would be of interest to more than the individual asking the question. So expect to see a mixture of topics under discussion here, pretty much at random, which may or may not be of interest to you.
