Today is my 63rd birthday. Sometime later this morning I’ll ride my bike down to the park and engage in a fairly hard workout. Later today I’ll probably go to one of my favorite restaurants and order a plate of nachos. I seldom eat the whole thing at once, taking home about half of it for later. Yeah, I can eat that stuff cold and a little soggy.
I’ve gotten a couple of donations for my birthday, and I’m saving them up for one of these. It offers better connectivity for my area, and is supported for a lot longer than my current flip phone. Even better, it supports tethering and wifi-sharing, something my current phone does not do.
Traffic on this blog plunged when I ditched the domain name, but one donor insisted on paying to remove the advertising, so this remains a paid blogging account. A part of me wonders if larger events won’t somehow cramp, or even end, a lot of blogging. I’m not going to go silent, but I have been keeping up with the research for alternative ways to get the message out should it come to that. The entire computer technology landscape is changing rapidly right now, and the political warfare is easily the most destructive part of that picture.
On a side note, it’s been pretty quiet lately. I’m doing okay, but some of our active community members have been pretty busy with their meat-space lives. As you might expect, many of my friends are aging, too, and some of them show it in ways unpleasant for them. Seeing that, I believe I’m holding up pretty well, thank you.
