Geoff Kuenning's Extracurricular Interests
When not computing, I enjoy musical pursuits,
notably singing and playing the piano and timpani, and used to be the program
annotator for the Symphony of
the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California. My
program notes are available via
the Web for interested persons.
I also enjoy bicycling. I have created a useful Web site that helps
people design optimal bicycle gearing.
I also used to sail, though I don't any more due to lack of time.
Here are some (very outdated) sailing-related links that I have put
- Los Angeles weather information.
- Helpful mnemonics related to sailing.
- A collection of data files for use
with the Stentec sailing simulator.
- The Worldwide Cruising Crew Muster
Board, based on scripts developed and shared by
Fred Cox (thanks,
- A discussion and scan of a Prusik
knot, which can be used to climb a mast.
- Some useful checklists for
things to take on a boat, and for what to do when you leave or
- A universal plotting sheet in
PostScript. You can print this and use it for navigation.
You can also customize it: open it in a plain-text editor
(such as NotePad, ugh) and look for the CONFIGURATION
SECTION. A note on costs, however: you can buy a pad of
plotting sheets for about 1.5 cents each. Laser-printing
costs are usually in the 2.5- to 5-cent range. So this isn't
a way to save money; it's just a handy solution for people who
only need a couple of sheets.
- A few pictures from a trip
I made to California's Channel
Islands with some Internet friends.
I haven't done much in online cycling (*grin*), but I did once manage
and repair a Shimano Deore DX shifter and have posted a detailed
description of the process.
I also do a bit of photography. I have no talent, but I have written
a few scripts useful with digital cameras.
I've also whipped up a couple of
projects that others may find interesting.
And I wrote a cheat sheet for the Sigma EF-500 DG Super that's
available in both A4
This stuff is here just so Google can find it:
