  Disappointing people, one at a time, since 1967.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2015-01-04  I'm back.  For now.  With capitalisation.  A $99 computer from 
Staples and a new $65 hard disk drive from a local computer store made it so.  
And some family-free time.  

I was surprised to see that the LCS still existed.  I figured with all the 
social media, pay-it-forward, YOLO, bucket list, selfie, mash-up bullshit that
has ruined computers for the truly deserving, the ones who have put their time
in, with emotional scars to prove, LCSes surely would have disappeared.

I enjoy blaming social media for everything that is wrong with this world.  
The only thing that can save us now is for Yellowstone to erupt with all her 
fury.  It's selfish of me to think this way, especially for my children, 
but honestly, let 'er rip.

2015-01-05  I promise you, this will not be a daily thing.  The main reasons 
for resurrecting this page are b-fold:  a) I'm paying for the web space; and 
b) I need a "go to" page for seldom referenced, but always "needed" 
information.  I will do my best not to bore with diatribes.  Were I younger,
I'd likely do so.  With age comes wisdom and wisdom shows that no one likes
a windbag.

2015-01-14  I use a bicycle for year-round transportation.  Even in winter.  
I have temperature thresholds and road condition limits, but, most days I 
perservere and make the 7 kilometre twice.  Truth be told, cycling in winter
is my favorite.

In the winter, even when outfitted with properly underinflated studded tires,
there's a good chance that at any given moment, the physics of soft rubber 
with tungsten carbide studs adhering to the ground will fail and I'll go down.
Please remember that when you are passing me way too close and way too fast in
your four-wheel killing machine.
