TTW's Story
« on: April 11, 2011, 08:40:34 AM »
Born 1943. I spent some years teaching math in a small university. Then I worked for a Cray Research as an analyst on supercomputing. Afterwords, some years working at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

I've done a bit of music off and on. I managed and played in several country dance bands over the years. Now I'm retired and doing some composing. Mostly, I'm self taught in composing. My mother was a concert pianist (a student of Joseph Lhevinne among others) and did teach me quite a bit.

And a re-welcome from me as well. It is gratifying to learn how much we have in common. I remember the Crays well, though I worked with CDC Cybers.

The Cray Fish was the fast fish in the water.
