A little background on my blog: The Harmonious Programmer

For those of you that know me, I got my bachelor degree in music. The Harmonious Programmer blog is a homage to the Air "The Harmonious Blacksmith" which is the final movement of Suite No. 5 for Harpsichord by George Frederick Handel.

The title image header of my blog is photograph of a painting -- a harmonious blacksmith in "Habit de Marêchal" by Nicolas de Larmessin II (1638-1694).  Larmessin was a French engraver and print producer.  His works are now in the public domain and thank you to Wikipedia for the image file.

For those interested, here is a performance of the "The Harmonious Blacksmith" performed by Paul Nicholson on the harpsichord:
