    Welcome To Mr. Y's Lab Notes!

    I am Alan Yorinks, sometimes known as Mr. Y.,  author of PyMata and s2a_fm.

    On this site you can expect to find:

    • Musings about my current open source software projects.
    • Musings about my future open source software projects.
    • Postings by users of Mr. Y's Lab software.
    • Tutorials.
    • And from time to time, stream of consciousness thoughts about items that interest me.

    This is my first foray into blogging, so this is likely to be a fluid site as I discover how to manage this beast. You are welcome to come along for the ride!

    If you are a user of either PyMata or s2a_fm, and wish to post a project or article to this blog, just use the contact box on the home page of this blog.
