September 29 - Long Time No Type

Yea, its been TWELVE days since I last posted an article.

I built the ramp for Charlie and brought it over. He was apprehensive, it'll take time. Old dog, new tricks and all.

I found a USB keyboard at a resale store for $.95 and brought it home. Scrubbed it until it sparkles. It's now my daily driver, replacing a PS2 keyboard.

I helped Ron move about a one-ton window air conditioner from the rotted wooden bathroom window and onto the bathroom floor. Contractors are replacing the window. That window unit will probably still be sitting in the middle of that tiny bathroom floor a year from now.

Mom's birthday is today. She's a spry eighty years old! I've offered to take her to the Quad Cities Botanical Garden. Maybe we can convince Kimberly to go with.

I'm test driving a different web browser named Pale Moon. Don't believe what you read on the web, it's one of the few remaining web browsers that's not owned by big tech and uses none of their code yet manages to work just fine in today's world wide web. So far there's been only one web site that doesn't work exactly like it should.

Web search is next. There are very few alternatives to Google which owns, oh, somewhere around 96% of web searches. Stepping away from that ain't gonna be easy.

Don't get the wrong idea. I think all the personal data scraping and tracking is mui bogus but I'm not about to go all Kaczynski or downshift or suchlike. I simply prefer not to participate unless it can't be helped.

Lemme see here… what else. Oh. Kim and I went on a trike ride that was just swell.

Me. On trike.
