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.

I went shooting today. Actually, I mostly did a lot of fetching and carrying and a young man tested some ammunition I’d made up and a new rifle. The weather was beautiful: just above freezing with some sun and very … Continue reading
Folks here have a lot to grouse about. I have actual grouse in the yard. Here are some right by my doorstep. I just opened the front door and shot them, photographically. Hunting is not allowed in my neighbourhood however, … Continue reading
Chuckle. I just got banned from a forum on firearms. The resident troll was the moderator. So, I guess I’ll be writing here more often about firearms. One of the first rifles I ever bought was a Mauser 98k in … Continue reading
We dressed very warmly today and went out once again. We saw nothing of interest but a poacher and lots of fresh tracks. The poacher was sitting in a truck with a rifle handy and high-beam lights illuminating “our” opening … Continue reading
Well, we finally had a break in the crazy non-winter weather, a real, honest to Goodness, Colorado Low brought in a bit of snow, cold temperatures and wind. As unpleasant as that is for hunters, it’s also unpleasant for deer … Continue reading
