-Why hello there! ​ I'm Ross O.  I'm sort of a jack-of-all-trades IT guy.  I'm mostly a *nix system administrator,​ but my work experience covers networks, systems programming,​ applications programming, technical writing, distributed computing, AI, printer repair [!], and so on.  In my spare time, I mess around with electronics and I make music with guitars, synthesizers,​ tape machines, and whatever I can think of.  You can hear some unpolished work on [[http://​soundcloud.com/​compact_deluxe|Soundcloud]]. ​ I'm also a recording engineer with a portable 16 channel studio and a lot of decent mics.  I record free jazz shows, rock shows, do concert bootlegs, stuff for my friends, and volunteer for the annual [[http://​www.woodlandpattern.org/​|Woodland Pattern]] Music Marathon.+Why hello there! ​ I'm Ross O.  I'm sort of a jack-of-all-trades IT guy.  I'm mostly a software developer and *nix system administrator,​ but my work experience covers networks, technical writing, distributed computing, AI, printer repair [!], and so on.  In my spare time, I mess around with electronics and I make music with guitars, synthesizers,​ tape machines, and whatever I can think of.  You can hear some unpolished work on [[http://​soundcloud.com/​compact_deluxe|Soundcloud]]. ​ I'm also a recording engineer with a portable 16 channel studio and a lot of decent mics.  I record free jazz shows, rock shows, do concert bootlegs, stuff for my friends, and volunteer for the annual [[http://​www.woodlandpattern.org/​|Woodland Pattern]] Music Marathon.

-==== What I'm interested in ==== 
-  * Mathematics - I have a degree in it, what can I say?  Math is really cool. 
-  * Photography - 35mm and digital. ​ Check out my [[http://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​rossoldenburg/​|Flickr Page]], which I haven'​t updated in over a year! 
-  * Analog Electronics - I don't dislike microcontrollers,​ but I like analog stuff a lot, especially for audio. ​ Just more interesting for me. 
-  * Synthesizers - I really like synths from the late 70's through mid 80's, but also from the last decade. ​ I have a lot of these. 
-  * Guitars - I have a Fender Stratocaster,​ a Martin D1, and a lot of pedals. ​ Guitar is fun. 
-  * "​Experimental Music" - as if it's really that serious. :)  I love music and love to record stuff and really, just mess around. 
-  * Recording engineering - microphones,​ mixers, ADC's, preamps, compressors,​ equalizers, effects processors, acoustics, blah blah blah 
-  * Circuit Bending, to some extent 
-  * Modifying cassette players to do new and interesting things 
-  * OSes, servers, and other systems stuff. - My favorite OS is [[http://​www.freebsd.org|FreeBSD]],​ but I mostly use [[http://​www.debian.org|Debian]] and [[http://​www.apple.com|OS X]]. 
-  * Networks - Comes with the sysadmin territory. ​ I've dealt with Cisco, Force10, and Juniper gear.  I know how to do lots of weird things with networks. 
-  * [[http://​www.perl.org|Perl]] - The best scripting language ever.  People that complain about Perl don't know what they'​re talking about ;) 
-  * [[http://​http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​C_%28programming_language%29|C]] - An awesome language that changed computing forever. 
-  * Beer - I want to learn how to brew. 
-  * Cooking - I like food and people tell me I'm a good cook. 
-  * Cycling - I can do basic bicycle repairs, but want to learn more about it and build my own bike out of junk. 
-  * Experimental Fiction - reading it, not writing it. :)  David Foster Wallace, Jeffrey DeShell, Walter Abish, Jean Cocteau, William S. Burroughs, Jorge Borges, and so on. 
- 
-==== What I'm working on ==== 
-  * Getting tweets, SMS messages, and access control status (Who just unlocked the door?) onto a [[http://​milwaukeemakerspace.org/​2011/​09/​led-signage/​|BetaBrite]] sign. - still in progress... stalled because of laziness, really. 
-  * Building synthesizers out of Commodore 64's - SID2SID/​MSSIAH,​ SID2SID/​Cynthcart,​ and MIDIBox SID. 
-  * Repairing a broken [[http://​www.vintagesynth.com/​roland/​sh2000.php|Roland SH-2000]] that some shyster on eBay lied about. 
-  * Upgrading my [[http://​www.vintagesynth.com/​roland/​juno60.php|Roland Juno-60]] with the [[http://​midipolis.blogspot.com/​|Minerva Kit]] - Just waiting for it to arrive in the mail. 
-  * Reading [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​The_Art_of_Electronics|AofE]] and [[http://​www.elsevier.com/​wps/​find/​bookdescription.cws_home/​721193/​description#​description|Small Signal Audio Design]]. 
-  * Designing homebrew modules for my [[http://​www.paia.com/​p9700s.asp|PAiA 9700S]] modular synth. 
-  * Working with the [[http://​vimeo.com/​12042205|Synchroton Media Research Laboratory]] on analog video synthesis and computer music. 
-  * Learning enough woodworking to build [[http://​www.billfitzmaurice.com/​|BFM]] speaker cabinets with JackD. 
-  * I will eventually find a way to make the Makerspace'​s Internet connection suck less...! 
-

-  * Set up this Wiki! 
-  * I helped with our cute little [[http://​milwaukeemakerspace.org/​2011/​02/​jacobs-ladder/​|Jacob'​s Ladder]] - [[http://​www.youtube.com/​user/​Photonicinduction|Photonicinduction]] would call us wimps 
-  * Built a [[http://​milwaukeemakerspace.org/​2011/​11/​doorbell-addition/​|Doorbell]] for the space with Brant.
