After noting it has been awhile since I posted anything here, it seemed like I should make a few comments about things.

Things seem like they are going pretty well. I have been doing a bit of consulting on non-Linux things which have allowed me some freedom and I work for Wild Open Source now in a management capacity I guess you could say. I enjoy the people there since they are people I have seen somewhere before :).

Other things I have been doing is picking back up some minor bits of consulting work in the systems and software deployment areas. I used to do a fair bit of systems and software deployment at this little clothing company I worked at for awhile.

Other stuff is learning a bit about Apache, PHP, and other things which strike my fancy. I am no bigtime coder but I do like to learn how things work and how I can make things work differently.

I was very sorry to see Lokigames fade away; I was a very happy and challenged customer of theirs and I would like to thank them publicly for their Sid Meier stuff especially; but I also have spent many an enjoyable hour with SimCity and a few other titles.

I have not really played much with my IPAQ running familiar linux lately unfortunately. I noticed that the handhelds.org crew released a new version which I should definitely try. My IPAQ works so well now as a mp3 player with an IBM 1g microdrive in it, its kind of a shame to reflash things. I also have been using dillo on it and playing a bit with the ion window manager both on the ipaq and a desktop I have.

I don't know that I will become more timely posting here since I seem to not get to the site so often of late. I was very sorry to read of the troubles that hacker had with his relocation. I never had that level of destruction but once in the military all my stuff ended up going to the wrong military base. Nothing to compare with his story about the destruction of stuff.
