Several times the trolls here have nagged that I might as well have a bicycle as my new RED Solo EV. Here’s an example of why that’s not a good idea. The picture below is one of my most-travelled routes. Note the high speed limit and lack of a paved shoulder. Often traffic is light but there are bursts of traffic when a light turns green or just by chance. It’s not pleasant to have big things whizzing by with ~85km/h speed differential.

No, Solo makes more sense. It’s easy to pull over onto gravel if necessary and I can cruise at 70-80km/h quite comfortably without annoying the heck out of my fellow travellers and I can carry a lot more luggage for shopping/shipping.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. I do not care whether my solution is the same as yours. I like to think for myself.
My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
