|My name is Dan Churchill. I am a senior
attending Macalester College in
Saint Paul, Minnesota.
I am a Computer Science major
and a Music minor.
This year I am president of Macalester Christian Fellowship, and assistant
editor of Couterpoint, the newsletter of the as-yet-unnamed music
club. I have played euphonium in the Macalester College Symphonic
Band and bass trombone in Mac Jazz and the Macalester Symphony Orchestra.
Needless to say, after my studies, rehearsals, and work study job in CIT,
I have very little free time for hobbies and other such things. When
I do have time for something extra, you are most likely to find me doing
something computer-related, from playing
to tinkering with my Linux machine. To keep up with the fast-paced
computer industry, I subscribe to Computer
either of which I would recommend as high-quality, informative computer
magazines. Two of the best online magazines that I know of are HotWired
and The Week in Web Review.
Background: I grew up in Lamberton, a small community in southwestern Minnesota. I am a 1996 graduate of Red Rock Central High School. Some of the activities that I was involved in were Academic Decathlon, Band, Choir, Jazz Band, and National Honor Society. While in high school, I worked for The Music Mart. Since then I have spent my summers working for RRCNET and the Macalester College Computing and Information Technologies department, doing anything from web site creation, to Netware server and client setup, to Perl programming.
