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. 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.
