AstroDayRIchard2007.jpg I'm a computing professional living in Kanata, Ontario, which is part of the greater city of Ottawa.

Interests

Astronomy
DS2_2745-icon.jpg
An avid amateur astronomer, I enjoy observing from home, nearby dark sites, and especially "sidewalk astronomy" -- public outreach events where we give the passing public a chance to see. I'm also struggling up the learning curve for astrophotography.
Photography

Photography, especially landscapes, portraits, and events. This link leads to a different site with publicly-shared photos.
Motorcycling

I'm an avid motorcyclist, commuting and especially into the countryside on weekends, but wish the season around here was longer. Want to discuss great roads in the area?
Amateur Radio

Once quite active, then inactive for a decade, I have put amateur radio station VE3NVM back on the air, now low power and casual use, and like to contact distant countries using low power and Morse code.
Freeware Small software utilities I've developed for fun or necessity, available for free download.
Japan After having the pleasure of living in Tokyo for a couple of years, quite a few years ago, I still love to reminisce about Tokyo and environs; Hakone; Fuji; MiyakeJima; Kamakura; Trains; Akihabara; Food.
