Back in the Saddle
First POST IN A LONG TIME! It is truly amazing how lazy a person can become, but the real dark side is that personal laziness has an affect on other people. Damn the fact that it is not possible (or feasible in the modern sense) to be "an island unto one's self."
So, I am back in the saddle!
I have jumped into a new learning phase. MAC. After being a PC snob for the longest of times, I have a new found fondle for the MAC Mini. This fondness may even lead to a full fledged G box and that soon to leap leopard OS release. I may even be so bold as to outfit the wife with a MAC, and this would be some feat - since she is the really demanding tech user in the house. Due to the fact that her main principle is "The Shit Had Better Work", or I'll never hear the end of it!
In pushing away from the Redmond Rangers, I am learning the new headaches that come with the new languages, syntax, and vocabulary of the F/OSS world. From the mac perspective UNIX via BSD and the many flavors of Linux and the god awful amount of stuff that you need to have a handle on to get by in the soft everything program world. For example LAMPPP - Hack, Stack, and Flack - Ruby, Rails, snips of code and object trails........Visual this and that What you see and IDE........arrrgh - But what is the point of having a brain if you ain't gonna hack the code that runs it, and it is all about learning new things, or at a minimum working with the chops to ensure that the mind is sharp!
