Regarding bodacia's recent comments on my career issues (that it seems like my heart and soul is more committed to the arts than computers), I found something I wrote a few months ago on the subject. In general, I think I have a healthy interest and appreciation for my arts-related hobbies (dance and music), but no serious desire to pursue a career in them. A lot of what makes them enjoyable is that I'm not under a lot of pressure to perform to someone else's expectations. I also think that arts-related careers are at least as unpredictable and volatile as computer careers are now.

If I've given the impression that I'm less interested in computers than the arts, I don't mean to. I've commented on various computer-related subjects here (e.g. click fraud, congestion avoidance).
