{I should say I am taking the trouble of doing this because some highly competent and ethical people have set this up to help people like me who need it in the complex area of computer system management}

Having said that I think it appropriate to begin with the term used so casually above; 'COMPLEXITY'.. associated closely with entropy but even less understood..

To quote the Wikipedia.."there is no absolute definition of "complexity"... there is no agreement...

1.0 Entropy is Confused

Posted 01-17-2018 at 09:38 PM by Gyroman (Computational Entropy)

Entropy is the most jumbled, misunderstood term in science and engineering. It affects everything we do and is the fundamental reason we need guru's in all areas of engineering and computing in particular to keep things working. Its not taught in school clearly or correctly at any level below about PhD. At that level it depends on how the supervisor views the world around him or her.

We only need use the Richard Feynman test to establish this..

Winter vacation 2017-2018

Been in Florida for a few months now. We had a short cold spell but it's warming into the 70's now and we can get back to our golfing. Been real cold in Illinois and surrounding states in the Midwest. In Florida when it gets down into the 30 or 40 it's freezing to everyone.

It has been two weeks since I have played golf. I'll be playing outside our park on Tuesday and it will be a challenge. Longer courses can be a challenge when you are working a executive par 3 course....

Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Build 10 with GAPPS, three new Windows launchers, Bluetooth (working!) and Mesa 10.5.9

Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Exton Build 180108, version 10, is a ready!
This new version (180108) is basically the same as AndEX KitKat Build 160214. I have now upgraded some apps and added three new (Windows) launchers – Computer Launcher, Microsoft Launcher and Win 10 Launcher. To be able to run AndEX Oreo 8.1, which was released 180103, you’ll have to use a fairly new computer. AndEX KitKat runs also on older computers, which is one reason for me to remind you of the existence of AndEX KitKat...
