First post! OK, with that out of the way...

I decided this past summer to explore Common Lisp as the vehicle for my non-work-related programming. I bought and read a copy of "Practical Common Lisp" by Peter Seibel, discovered websites like common-lisp.net and planet.lisp.org, downloaded and started reading "On Lisp" by Paul Graham, and even posted a silly beginner's exercise to comp.lang.lisp. Since then, I have contributed to a couple Lisp-related projects. Most recently, I've embarked on an effort to implement a UI toolkit directly on top of the Win32 API.

Writing about this stuff will be, if nothing else, a way to step back and think.
