Do you ever feel like your head will burst if you have to create or remember another login/password combo? Sure, your browser tries to help (at least mine does), prompting helpfully to ‘remember’ the login – usually. But that’s specific to your computer. What happens when you’re away from it?

I’m building a marimba. I’ve been a musician for years (although not a marimba player) but have never – until now – built an instrument. Believe me, building is different from playing.
