    I put peanut butter on my waffle this morning. What do you think of such a food creation?

    Back in the 90s you could surf the web, just like today, with multiple tabs/programs, on less than 100 MB and it was speedy fast! And today.. it is all going in reverse. And I am not even talking about JavaScript here. Software keeps getting every bigger, forcing the world to build ever-faster computers to keep up, or else we'd be crushed under the weight of our own programs. If the developers of today were forced to live with the computers of the 90s perhaps the situation would improve.

    I see that the FSF board has shared the next step in their new process.

    Since the nominations don't open until summer I plan to spend this time thinking on high-quality candidates that are reflective of the matrix.

    The future of computing isn't in the cloud; it's in your mind.

    The cat's like "I can see a small part of the bottom of the food bowl over there - Oh noes that means the bowl is totally empty! I'm going to starve! Please fill it back up!"

    This morning I cooked some oatmeal. Then crunched up a granola bar into it. So, the oatmeal was kinda crunchy.
