Started with caldera, then Mandrake to Mandriva b.s. and then Ubuntu when it was ok. And then #! I quit KDE because of neepomuk. No, I am not that great at it, can't code or anything, but I like foss.
Yeah, if I am going to have my feet in the water on one machine, well, maybe it is time to abandon debian testing. I will remain on stable on my main machine as usual. This seems a good enough place to hang a hat some days.
Activists I miss are Phil Berrigan, Samuel Day (long ago editor of Bull Amer. Atomic Sci) and Sen. Paul Wellstone. But I live in Canada. Would have been nice to have met Jack Layton. But, I won't be talking any more about that here. period.
I spent a few years living with the homeless. Sheltered a lot of Korean and Viet War vets, but since then mostly I have been working with the mentally challenged the last two decades. I lived in the same houses with them for 13 years.
I think I will fit in here. peace. Mark
