More Linux in the Wild— Does It Mean Anything?

Posted 11-25-2015 at 02:39 AM by John Roe

There are more Linux flavors to make the head spin than the biblical psalms- and that is no jest. With the advent of Unix-esque systems like Apple's OSX or iOS & Google's Android, there are now even mundanely kitchen appliances running the kernel. To the inclined it seems a great victory over the closed source systems; does that mean anything, though?

The Authorized Version

Posted 11-25-2015 at 02:23 AM by John Roe

Quotes about the AKJV.
HL Mencken
It is the most beautiful of all the translations of the Bible; indeed, it is probably the most beautiful piece of writing in all the literature of the world. Many attempts have been made to purge it of its errors and obscurities. An English Revised Version was published in 1885 and an American Revised Version in 1901, and since then many learned but misguided men have sought to produce translations that should be mathematically accurate, and in the plain

I woke up this mourning to find over 3" snow fall today. Too much too early, just playing a round of golf here last week and it was 60° with slight wind. Now its 30° expecting another 1" or more.
