Mozart's Fifth String Quartet

I've sent the Lilypond files for the first movement of Mozart's fifth string quartet to the Mutopia Project, Mutopia-2006/03/27-711. They're also available at my website. Enjoy!

Lilypond 2.8 is out!

Hurrah for the latest stable release of Lilypond, 2.8! It's available as source, of course, and there are binaries for Windows (apparently everything since 2000), FreeBSD, Mac OSX >= 10.3 and Linux (x86).

Lilypond is a GPL'd (that is, free [as in freedom] software) music typesetting program, and is the one that I have moved almost exlusively to.

Octavia Butler is Dead

From seattlepi on February 27, 2006:

Butler, 58, died after falling and striking her head Friday on a walkway outside her home in Lake Forest Park. The reclusive writer, who moved to Seattle in 1999 from her native Southern California, was a giant in stature (she was 6 feet tall by age 15) and in accomplishment.
