Summer days of July/Aug in Central Illinois are miserable at times with heat index in triple figures. I play in the senior summer league and we tee off at noon. Shows how smart we are in old age. Sure it's nice in early spring or late fall but when the heat index gets high then things can get dangerous. I drink at least 4-6 bottles of water per round and everyone teases me for drinking so much water. Still I can have some problems, at times I sweat so bad that I cannot stand...

I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.4 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.2).

ExTiX 16.4 KDE DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.5 Jessie/Debian 9 Stretch and Ubuntu 16.04.1. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed KDE Frameworks 5.18.0 with KDE 4.15. KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality...

I'm going to write a short off-topic series on a challenge my wife issued to me the other night. We have two turtles in a 55 gallon aquarium, and I can't seem to keep up with the filter cleaning (turtles are like Oscars and Plecos in terms of waste generation, only 1000x worse...well, ok, Oscars are pretty messy, too). I was complaining about the constant filter maintenance, and my wife asked me why I didn't just build out an aquaponics system on top of the aquarium.

This is pretty...

Got several of the rpi zeros. Except for the wiring, same as using any other pi.

Downloaded the latest slackware, but have not installed it yet.

Sent a ton of stuff to the recyclers which I said I never would do.
