Favorite Things

Lilypond
Forget Finale! This is the finest music notation program around, and it's FREE!
Steinway
Everybody's favorite piano (that's if you're not a Boesendorfist).
Blüthner
My living room grand is a beautiful Model 7 from 1911. Kudos go out to Reinhard Diehl for donating it to me. If you want to know more about these pianos that "sing" more than any other, check out their website (although I do prefer their pre-war ones)!
Schimmel
They made my rehearsal room piano. It's not a bad one. So they get a link here.
Musik-Service Berlin
The cool guys & gals at my favorite music store are looking forward to your visit.
Tikala
They sell music by women for women. A good thing.

Computers/Web/
Programming

PHP home page
Includes a language reference.
Perl.com
All about Perl, the scripting language.
The W3C's CSS page
Learn about Cascading Style Sheets. They're a great way to tune the looks of your web page. I used them heavily on mine.
The Edge
Dedicated to pushing the sundry applications of CSS to the max. A lot of design ideas you see on this web page, I got from there. Thanks, Eric!
Linux Magazine
because in a free world, we need neither Windows nor Gates. German sister site.

Sukkat Schalom
A friendly and open Liberal Jewish synagogue in Berlin.
Bet Debora
Bet Debora is a shining example that feminism and Judaism are not mutually exclusive.
Mensa in DeutschlandMensa Mblem
A society for bright people. In the words of one Mensan, smack dab in the middle between being a mental sports club, an elite network and a self-help group. Click on the Mblem to go to Mensa's international site.
Silver Future
My favorite watering hole in my neighborhood.
Laura Méritt
Feminist scholar and all-round activist for gender equality and a woman's right to sexual pleasure.
