Well that was fast

I have a really nice older D-link WiFi router that has served well for years. When we moved last December, I got a speed bump in our internet service from 20MB/s to 125MB/s, quite a jump. I even bought a brand new cable modem that had more channels to bond (which just means lots more…

Old Dogs. New Tricks.

I have been a Windows user for over twenty years. I have used Linux on the desktop for around ten years. My primary work machines have run Linux for around four years. I never really used Macs. I have tried in the past, but it just never really worked out. OS X looks good on…

I gotta say that Christmas is really overstepping its bounds. Santa will be appearing at the local mall starting this coming Saturday (November 8!!). The only…
