How White and Nerdy Are You? I got a 46% rating. I guess I'm not enough of a game fanatic or something.
Here are some of the music and dance groups I'm involved with:
Cambridge Folk Orchestra
International Folk Dance Music. Here's an experimental online repertoire file, complete with links to music on the net.
Oivan Ilo
Traditional Finnish music in the Boston area.
Roaring Jelly
The Boston area's massed contra-dance band.
Klezmer Contraband
High-energy contradance music with an Eastern flair.
Old-time Scandinavian dancing. If you'd like to see some of our music, look in this directory.
Finnish folk dances.

Hidden somewhere on this web site is a picture which almost certainly violates the Communications Decency Act and any other local anti-pornography law in your part of the world. The supporters of such legislation often claim that, if you put something on the Web, "Anyone can get it". The Web is supposedly so insecure that any child can download anything at any time. So I've put a naughty picture here as a challenge: Can you (or any neighborhood child ;-) find it? If you succeed in viewing the picture, please send me a message telling me the text across the top, plus an explanation of how you found it. If you can't find it, you might pass my URL on to anyone who makes such provocative claims, and challenge them to show you just how easy it is by finding the picture.

I checked in August 2008, and again in August 2014, and both "ls -lut", and the server logs say that nobody has read my dirty picture since I created it back April 1996. Hey, guys; can't you do better than that!? I mean, it's been more than 18 years and *nobody* has looked at it. It's a nice picture, really! ;-)
