Thanks for all the good wishes and presents guys.  I will still be around here,  actualy I've been making an effort to be here more,  no matter how much in wine swimming is in my future.  :D

Should make for some interesting posts ;)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I hear Naples has a trash pickup problem, which they seemed to bring over to New York City.  I would watch out for the mounds of trash.  Could be good a game or two of king of the mountain.  And feeding your pet pig.

Ok I know my presence here has been sporaddic for the last two months.  But I'm finally all moved in.  I got all my stuff safe and sound.  Got internet (Finaly!).
Here is my new setup:

very happy.  All is well.  Hoping to meetup with Matt3o soon.
