Hey y'all


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
