My G5 project computer. It’s been staring at me for months. I’m hoping the kids will help me finish it while they’re home from school. It would be nice to get it up and running again.

Every so often I write notes-to-self under my todo lists. I don't always appreciate them on the day I write them but when I find an old one it usually makes me smile. Here's one I wrote recently:

Finished the last and latest from Umberto Eco 

I was planning to switch from Postfix to OpenSMTPD. Now I'm thinking, why change if Postfix has been solid?

My 10-year-old son asked if "Capitalism" was like "Cannibalism". I said yes, of course.
