Longhorn Band 1990

Longhorn Band

In the Fall of 1990, I began my journey at the University of Texas at Austin. An integral part of my experience was when I joined the Longhorn Band. In 1990, I was just a little “fish”, but made friends that I will have for the rest of my life. I consider many of my fellow LHB mates almost family. These were the people who helped me adjust to life in a big city, get over my first experience with alcohol, and not be afraid of being on the center stage. Read More

Hugo and Website Change Log

hugo website

This is a technical post meant for other geeks, so please feel free to skip it unless you are interested in Hugo, Static Site Generators, Theme design, and the like. This website is currently generated by Gitlab using the publysher/hugo docker module and using Hugo 0.19. I migrated this website from Ruby-based Jekyll, which was migrated over from Wordpress. In 2010, I combined two different weblogs on Wordpress into one - my Personal Blog (www. Read More

February 2017 End of Month Rollup Update

Updated to Hugo 0.19 I did my first ever public pull-request on github by updating the gitlab pages hugo docker script to hugo 0.19. I’ve done pull requests on my private repos and servers, but never on the public facing one. So everything has been updated to 0.19 and all of the links now work. :) OK, my initial plan of posting weekly went the way of the dodo-bird. It’s been a hectic month and I have only since gotten my head above the water. Read More

New Year New Start - Blog Relaunch

This posting launches the new and improved “Jeffreys Ruminations”. The previous blog was kept offline for so long because I was no longer able to generate new pages in Jekyll (the static site generator on the old site). I have since rewritten the entire site from scratch complete with my own new theme based on Bootstrap 3 for the Hugo Static Site Generator program. This has been a fun project and a learning experience for both HTML5/CSS3 and Hugo. Read More

This is a “different” type of music posting. On December 7, 2014, the Comal Community Band performed it’s annual Christmas Concert at Stage Theatre in Bulverde, TX.. However, since this is an open house event, it gets pretty loud. So my normal recordings do not actually work for this event. However, I was testing out the camera in my phone while on stage and took some videos of 5 songs from the Christmas half of the presentation (there are two parts - the first is normal non-Christmas music, then an intermission, then a Christmas music finale).

On October 18, 2014, I participated in the 51st Annual Longhorn Alumni Band Reunion at the Texas vs Iowa State. This was the first time I have participated in the last 10 years (I used to always do it from 1995-2002, but dropped out afterwards). This completes one item from my Ultimate Quest List for 2014-2015 (see The Road Ahead for more information on the Ultimate Quest). For this event, I decided to do a couple of videos. Read More

This is the first of two posts that I hope will chronicle my experiences at the most awesome event that I attended between September 18-21, 2014 at a camp nestled in the mountains of northern Georgia. This inaugural event was held by Steve Kamb and the crew at the website NerdFitness plus some awesome teachers who educated and motivated us to be the best person physically and mentally that we can be.
