My Tech Blog (Geek Out)

As CIO of Track Entertainment, I see a lot of great new technologies and get to investigate a number of both open source and commercial software packages. Every day I am presented with the challenge of maintaining and updating existing systems, investigating new technologies, launching a web site, or solving general IT issues.  I do not have a bias in terms of open source versus commercial – I just need the best solution for the job.  We run RedHat Linux and Microsoft Windows, MS SQL and MySQL, Apache and IIS, commercial and open source software packages.

Sometimes the process of finding the best solution for the problem takes a lot of time and effort. This section of my blog is dedicated to taking all of my research and sharing it with the world…  Hell, I did all the work, so why shouldn’t someone else benefit?  Look for my reviews on the best commercial and open source software, reviews of new technology, great deals I’ve found, and more.  I hope that it helps some other people in doing their job or building their pet project.


What am I listening to? The Sounds – Dying to Say This To You

The Sounds – Dying To Say This To You (Released 3/21/06)
Another Swedish rock group on my favorites list (along with Shout Out Louds, Sahara Hotnights,  and others), I was first turned on to them by the single “Song With A Mission” on Sirius Alt Nation, and have to say the entire album is very strong. We had a chance to catch them at their sold out show at Irving Plaza last week (4/12), and they also put on an amazing show. Unfortunately, Morningwood did not do that much for me as the opener.

Track listing:
1. Song With A Mission (mp3-quicktime) (mp3-windows media) (video)
2. Queen Of Apology (mp3-quicktime) (mp3-windows media)
3. Tony The Beat
4. 24 Hours
5. Painted By Numbers (mp3-quicktime) (mp3-windows media)
6. Night After Night
7. Ego
8. Hurt You
9. Much Too Long
10. Running Out Of Turbo

More soon…


Music? Nightlife? What do I know?

Well, as the President and founder of, I’d have to say that I know a thing or two about nightlife. As for music, I’m just an avid fan and frequent concert goer. (Headed to Coachella next weekend!)  This section of my blog will contain some of my top new music picks and nightlife updates, focusing both on alternative rock and dance.  Hope you enjoy and stick around for the ride!


Welcome to the first entry in my blog!

Ok, so I knew I should have had a blog for awhile now, and I even tried to set one up a few times before, but I never found any software that I really liked all that much…until now.  I just found WordPress and I have to say, I’m impressed. So far, the software is great! Still playing around with it all, so I’ll let you know what I think, but it seems to do a great job. I’ll be sure and let you know more of my thoughts on it later under the Tech category.

Plus, it really was time to get rid of my outdated, old site
