I’ve been busy latetly. Earthpages is a few days behind. But I have been doing some R&D with Linux software. I like Linux. Now trying out a very light OS for older computers called Lubuntu. For me, it’s a bit snappier than Xubuntu.
If you’d like to try Linux, be warned. At the beginning it can be frustrating. Simple things like unzipping and installing need to be learned all over again. And it can be buggy. You gotta have a bit of a tech sense, I think. Still, it’s nice to get away from that fracking Microsoft hegemony. Free software might be the wave of the future. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone could have access to computers, learning and creativity?
Another great photo from Pixabay.
I used to spend untold hours playing around with 8bf filters. I never really got thaaaat good at it. But I do enjoy fixing pics. This is from a photo disc I bought years ago at FutureShop (defunct Canadian superstore bought out by Best Buy) when Earthpages was just starting out. Soon after, Flickr and other image sources became available, and I forgot all about my old discs.
Some of the pics are a bit dated. But the classic shots are always good.
So looks like I’ll be doing more dumb captions for a while! 🙂
Okay, so some of you are probably wondering what the heck I look like. Apart from a few pics at Facebook and Flickr, I’ve kept a pretty low profile. It wasn’t always that way. But things happen and I just wanted to lay low for a while.
Today I went to a 11:30 Mass and then hung out in a coffee shop for a while after. By the time I got home I was in a silly mood and wanted to do a selfie. So here’s a silly selfie.
The effect is “Brick Wall” in Photoshop Elements. I adjusted the lighting angle to make it look more like getting run over or attacked by a staple gun than just mere bricks.
Life goes on. Life is good. Maybe next time I’ll do a serious one. Or a smile. 🙂
