Most Recent Observations:

  • Peloton or Zwift? - For your indoor-riding money, which is better: Peloton or Zwift? I have both, and although Peloton riders and Zwift riders each have more or less the same goal of getting a good cycling workout, they almost could not be more different. After about 1,000 Peloton rides (just about every day for a couple of years),… Read More »Peloton or Zwift?
  • Weeping Demon repair - By popular demand (OK, one person asked me about it recently), here’s an old post about my (then) recent repair of an Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah pedal (which conked out during an otherwise slammin‘ performance by an Irish band I play with). After our lead guitarist mentioned that it was the second of those he’d owned and… Read More »Weeping Demon repair

About Brygs

The goal of the site (as I mentioned in my first blog post) is for me to exercise my writing and communicating muscles, and not (necessarily) to try to profess expertise on any given subject or to pour my heart (or at least my brain) out to the Internet. Still, to give this all some context, here is a very brief bio:

I have been employed with various Internet endeavors since the 1990s. I have worked as a web designer, developer, project manager, team lead, and consultant for a few decades, and I feel I can assert that I have a valid opinion when it comes to the internet related technology opinions expressed here. In addition, I have been a performing musician for more than a decade, and although I do not claim to be an expert, I can at least say comfortably that I am experienced.

So, thanks for coming to the site and reading some of what I have to say. As I mentioned in my first blog post, the point of writing is communication, and while it is possible to write when there are no readers, it is more rewarding when one’s writing can be shared.
