Life is always interesting with the grand kids visiting. Tonight when I did my walkabout to make sure the house was in order, I discovered that I had spilled some oil when I topped up the damned ICEd vehicle… In the kitchen I heard a soft rushing sound. I checked all the bathrooms and the heat-recovery ventilator. All off. Then I went to the utility room and saw dripping pipes where the cold water is distributed. Sure enough one of the garden hoses was left running. It’s been raining for days. We had no need to turn it on but kids can turn things on just because they can… Sigh.

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.
