Sonar Project

January 28, 2013

Please support a friend of mine and friend of the free/open source community, Jonathan Nadeau, with the Sonar Project. This is a project to bring a fully accessible operating system based on GNU+Linux that is both free-as-in-cost and free-as-in-freedom (meaning you can legally share, modify, and install as you wish).

This project is not just for blind and low vision people, but for people who struggle with dyslexia and learning disabilities as well as accessibility for people with low motor skills and quadriplegics. Please take the time to watch the video and support this project however you can.

ReBoot!

January 23, 2013

So, this blog has been silent for quite a while now.  In that time, my life has gone through a bit of a reboot.  Thankfully, the changes that have taken place since that reboot have been very good and I pray that they continue to get better and better.

With that, I’ve decided to give this blog a reboot.  As before, it will be focused on my love for technology (old and new) as well as my love for music as well as the tech behind that.  However, I will be leaving out all of the personal details of my life (unless it’s tech-related) and that of my wonderful family from this point on.  I’m sure I’ll have some personal opinions on some things that I’d like to share, but what happens in the family stays in the family. 😉

And while speaking of reboots, I’m very happy to announce the reboot of Linux Basement which has been brought back from the beyond.  Episode 71 has been released (sans moi) and it explains quite a bit about the silence and the reboot of the podcast.  I will return on Episode 72 so be sure to keep an eye out for it.

You can find Linux Basement at http://www.linuxbasement.com (or just click the link at the side bar 😉 ).
