Okay, first the name, Serak: It's a corruption of Sarek, the Vulcan ambassador from the Star Trek series. When I first got onto the internet, Sarek was already being used by someone else on Yahoo!, so my guts felt it was time for a vowel movement (hee,hee).
Little did I know, an internet search for "Serak" results in 'The Simpsons' TV show, Indian martial arts, and even Hawaiian vertebrates. Guess it's hard to come up with something truly unique.
I think this Wikipedia idea is one of the best things to come around in a long time!
Right now, you'll find most of my contributions are related to music. I've been playing Flamenco and Classical guitar for about..(mumble,mumble)..years. I've even had a lesson or two from the flamenco guitarist Ronald Radford when he used to live in Tulsa.
Have recently started learning to play piano (well, MIDI organ). Playing classical/flamenco guitar hasn't been much help with right-left hand coordination. Reading Treble and Bass clef at the same time? Yech!
It seems, a whole new generation has discovered "Tolkien is Hobbit forming!"... Frodo Lives! Poor Bilbo isn't getting much attention anymore.
