The past few days I’ve been under the weather so doing a bare minimum at Earthpages. But my time hasn’t been wasted. I tried out Linux again. And again decided that with my older hardware, I still prefer Windows. Also been updating, reconfiguring all my old computer stuff into a new synthesis that inspires me […]Read More Cold Season
It was fun but it couldn’t last. I had to admit it. Even the fastest Linux software (Puppy Slacko) for my old PC ran slower than a clean install of Windows XP.

Just wanted to say that I probably will be emailing and posting less personal Facebook updates as I’ve come back to an old love… RSS feeds!
