This P3 tower makes loud sounds in the early morn. when I boot it.
Will use it as long as it lasts.
So, to respond to this fact about plants and crops. These grow on their own
by nature. No one can make them grow. However, we can enhance their
growth for our benefit. A spade or a tractor used in farming is also technology.
They on their own don't grow plants, trees etc., However, by plowing soil,
assisting harvest etc., these greatly enhance agriculture. Similarly, computers
don't grow foods. However, they are greatly used in agriculture, botany etc.,
these days. They help in farming, keeping track of things, logistics, food
distribution, PCs help in Engg., that make equip. for agricultural use etc.,
IT helps a lot in medicine also these days.
Agreed prep. is a vital topic. However, this is a linux forum and this
will go way off topic unless it involved linus. There is an off-topic forum
here for general chat and prepping can still be discused there for those
with that interest.
My grandpa had an Organic farm. He told me when I was real small that even
few generations ago, paper was not readily available and some wrote on
leaves(olai chuvadi) and stones even. The entire village had one main radio
that all used to gather and listen to at the end of the day. Broadcast was
just a few hours a day. After this, folks will discuss the news. No TV.
Also, there were just one or two chess sets for the village, few bought
newspapers, there was a small library sort off with one copy of major newspapers
that folks used to read. It was not regular if I recollect on weekdays, was
more regular on weekends. A lot of info. was passed by word of mouth. Not all
homes there had power, only a few rooms in my granpa's house had power. They
used a hand fan mostly to cool themselves when it was real hot in summer.
All this was ok and normal, I didn't reall miss electricity much then.
But everyone was very deeply happy and content. So, for me this is prep. is a part
of my early life. So, see how off topic this can get. However, I wanted to
share this here as it gives a glimpse at how life was without TV even.
This huge influx of tech in our lives does cause a huge vacuum in our lives,
we are cut off from the energy of nature and natural sorroundings. That is
why I go for walks a lot, write a lot with pens and ball pens. (The first
fountain pens I used didn't have reservoir, they had to be dipped in ink
after writing a few words.) I also paint and sketch a lot, landscapes, nature
fish a lot. Of late, I love color pencils and admire them a lot. My art helps
bring the countryside to the City. It is just amazing and I love it.
So, even tho I have worked in IT and have this thread, I have an offline
life that is even more bright, amazing, deep, gives great joy and satisfaction.
If I were to focus on just Linux and PCs all the time, I will be in hospital
