Going Dark(er) For A Little While

My job keeps me pretty much tied up. I know I probably surprised some people with bugs showing up on Launchpad. I'm testing Bionic Beaver at home the hard way by using it day by day and watching things break as I try to use them. Sadly we are still using Windows For Warships at work since we are still not cleared to attempt to upgrade to Windows 10 safely. Our current enterprise network isn't handling its current load safely as it is now.

For most if not all mailing lists that I'm on, I'm going to be switching to digest mode by week's end. I've already got a backlog of podcasts that I haven't listened to. That means I'm already 3 episodes behind on the very fine Ubuntu Podcast let alone behind on The Archers Omnibus and RNZ -- Black Sheep. The events in Ambridge amuse me and show me that rural life in my part of the USA isn't that far separated from the UK version. Of course, I also live near an Amish colony so things are a bit skewed out here too.

Things may calm down after April 17th. This depends upon a very chaotic Commander-in-Chief not doing something chaotic that those of us in the civil service find unexpected, of course. Unanticipated civil disturbances could also be a factor. We shall see.

So, yes, I am still out there. To quote that line from The Prisoner: "Be Seeing You"
