Moving Out

Posted 04-25-2008 at 04:24 PM by mowestusa

For better or for worse I'm moving my blog to

Check out the first post on the new site for the reasons. I will no longer maintain the blog in two locations, since the new site has an RSS feed. I will keep this page up for an archive.

Speakers Do Make a Difference

Posted 01-22-2008 at 07:39 PM by mowestusa

I would consider myself an audiophile. I have not spent hundreds of dollars on my sound set up at home. I don't spend hours even listening to music. Podcasts have become my audio entertainment in the car, washing dishes, and when exercising. Yet, I have learned that speakers do make a difference. For years I have used the original speakers that come with desktops or the built in speakers in laptops.

If you are visiting my site Free and Open Under the Steeple then you know that I'm more into text than graphics. In fact, besides the little validation button at the bottom of my pages this post has the only graphics on the site at the moment.

SSH Saves the Day

Posted 09-13-2007 at 08:49 PM by mowestusa

I'm sure many a Unix Sys-Admin has used ssh to save the day, but in my case it has kept me from going insane. I admit that I use Free and Open Source Software not as my day job, but to get things done that I want to get done. Since getting into Linux and other Unix like operating systems, I have been able to do things that I never would have attempted just a few years ago. For example, I keep old computers running and useful. I have built a whole network of computers that offer me windows to the...
