Blown Away and Elated

I'm just frankly blown away. Here I am, 65 years old, been using Linux for 20 years, and never used Arch Linux before. It was too difficult to install, I thought. But in the end it just took some YouTube videos to tutor me, and I followed the steps, and now here I am. I... Continue Reading →

When is enough enough?

I'm not old. Sixty five. I look younger, but how much more time do I have? Twenty three years from now will be the age my father died. Thirty-four years from now will be the age my mother died. I still have some time. Right? I notice, however, that I think about "the end" a... Continue Reading →
