“An Israeli military spokesman said an initial review indicates militants fired at Israeli soldiers from the area of the school, and Israeli soldiers "responded by firing at the origin of the fire."”So much for the Israeli boast that they go out of their way to spare innocent civilians. Artillery rounds into a school will not spare civilians. This crap about needing to carpet-bomb Gaza because a few missiles reach Israel is garbage. All they have to do is put an “Iron Dome” over Gaza and the missiles would never reach Israel… Missiles are much easier to track and kill while they are accelerating than when they are at maximum speed. This is all an excuse to punish Palestinians for the sins of Hamas. Even the damned tunnels could be mined or bombed and crushed. It would cost much less in lives, time and money to do that. There is no need to invade Gaza to do that.

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.
