Our decreasing safety A look at the illusion of safety with respect to the damage we are doing to the world economy and the world's food supply.

It is a point of view which should be read by those not offended by "strong language."

The Linux Project: Gentoo revisited Another article in The Linux Project looks at Gentoo in a much gentler light. It is my apology to the Gentoo community for being so harsh about their distro in the first articles about it. It is also the confessions of a geek given the best toy he could ever get!

So what's with congress anyway? Just another batch of questions for which I know there are no answers; another bit of trying to understand exactly why the Democratic members of congress aren't on the same page, or even in the same time period as the rest of America.
