I left for Christmas break a week early because of housing problems and Monday morning got a phone call: no Internet access. I suspected students would try to work around my barriers to the Internet or turn off the teacher’s computer in the lab, so I left signs, a memo, etc. to try to head that off. The school did drop off the Web. I haven’t heard how the problem was fixed. I told the principal a few things to look for like cables unplugged… Routing is a wonderful thing. I blocked access to anything but W3Schools.com during my absence for kids in the lab. I expect a burst in productivity as a result. 😉

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. 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. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
