  1. The beauty of this Sunday Beauty… = Cheerfulness…how can one go through the world Creaking?

    Love this quote also I do many that you have here. Feels like the world is missing both… its Beauty and Wisdom.

    Thanks Paul

    • Well, Gaia, grouchy old curmudgeons like myself have grown quite talented at “creaking”.
      The first step is to develop yourself a good scowl. (A good scowl should be separate and different for the more heavy “sneer”.. lotta folks get theirs mixed together..)
      Next, listen to the evening news religiously.
      Step 3 fairly cements the deal, just think of every situation in terms of how it inconveniences you.

      Glad you enjoyed the photo from Argentina.

  3. Hey Paul…

    I just noticed your Blogroll listing of, which not only has my #2 favorite tech guy, Steve Gibson’s “Security Now”, but also has more than one link to videos and audio lessons on HAM radio. As you know, I’m getting back into amateur radio after 40 long years, and this is a valuable resource (for both Steve Gibson and HAM radio information). Thanks for adding it to your list! I haven’t had time to browse everything yet, but it’s a great website.

    • kstinman,
      TWiT.TV was, let’s see.. trying to remember.. the 3rd or 4th item I added to my “blogroll” of websites. And yes, a big reason why is Steve’s regular participation. Steve was the recipient of my second ever FOTIS – Tech Paul’s Friend of the Internet Surfer Award for October.

      And for those curious, TWiT.TV is more “podcasts” (audio recordings) than video.. and features Leo Laporte, The Tech Guy.
