The iMac is really working out great!
That App Store is like a Fast-food checkout.
Financial charges for "apps'. Some good, some shiite.
Sticking to the basics, working on automation via dictation.
The Sole Document I carried over from Linux? Timecard, which I remastered using Numbers.
Not that difficult.

I managed to get Siri to take dictation, so here'a my movie list that she typed.

27" iMac.
So, I will be even less inclined to participate here at LQ.

Couple of annoyances on this new host, but NBD for a Professional.

Why? You may axe.

23 years in IT and I am tired of typing.

Peace Out!

Target for this example is apache2, or "what were the defaults?"

mkdir -pv /path/to/temp/
dpkg-deb -x /var/cache/apt/archives/apache2_2.4.18-2ubuntu3.4_amd64.deb /path/to/temp/
Below /path/to/temp/ is
remove all but etc, so
rm -fr /path/to/temp/{lib,usr,var}
and there they are!

Dear Friends:

I woke up this morning to one of my "sugar gliders" laying on the bottom of the cage.
I could not tell, but I think it was the female, "Sweetie". She seemed to have been
struggling as of late moving about the cage.

If you don't know what a Sugar Glider is, I encourage you to go to
and search for
sugar gliders
or see the attachment.

I can't be a complete asshole, my...
