the daily events and musings of Jim.
It provides an easy way for his friends and family to check in on him,
and serves as a online repository for his random
thoughts, kaleidoscopic flashbacks, and writings on an array of diverse topics.

Good morning Dushanbe!

Hello to all of my fans in Dushanbe, Tajikistan!

If we can believe the data generated by Google Analytics, someone in Tajikistan paid a visit to my composer-centric website earlier today.

The mystery visitor launched directly into my site without looking it up in a search engine, or from clicking on a link. Their operating system is Windows XP, screen resolution set for 1280 x 1024, and browser of choice is Chrome. The mystery visitor uses tj-shuhrat as an ISP, and the language configured on their computer is the US version of English.

Dushanbe Tajikistan looks like a nice place. About 679,400 people live there.

Currently Dusanbe is comprised of 83.4% Tajiks, 9.1% Uzbeks, 5.1% Russians, 2.4% other groups. Shown on the right is the Ismail Samani Monument.

Dushanbe was once called Stalinabad, after Joseph Stalin.

Greetings to all of my fans in that part of the world!

I hope that you like my avant-garde modernist music!
