I did read though some past TU apps in the archives, but ultimately
elected to keep mine short and sweet.  To answer your questions, I
currently live on the boarder of Illinois and Indiana and work in the
medical field.  I love to travel and spend time in the outdoors.
Tropical destinations are on the top of my list of favorite places on
Earth with the US VI, the Caribbean, and Jamaica being top picks.
Snorkeling has always been one of my favorite things to do.  I keep
flirting with the idea of getting certified for SCUBA but never pulled
the trigger on it yet.  I grew up playing piano and did so seriously
when I was younger and before discovering the guitar.  You'd be
surprised how many metal guitarists started out classically trained.
I played in a bands all though high school and most of college.
Mostly metal and entirely cover tunes.

I like the way the data are displayed with monitorix.  Been using it
off-and-on since version 1 was released.  I can't comment on the other
two you mentioned having never used them.

Ha, thanks.  The source to it and really all my stuff is on my github.
 Pull requests are welcomed; always interested to learn another way to
do things.
