PS: Happy Rush Day!

Today is the 21st of December, or 2112. That makes today Rush Day! The first song I learned on electric guitar was “Fly By Night” by Rush.

11 Days to 2022: I Have No Holiday Spirit

I got my Moderna booster on Friday. It takes two weeks to be “fully covered.” Meanwhile, our governor in Oregon gave us a heads up, that we should see an Omicron wave in 3 weeks.

Surgical Destruction of the Past

INTRODUCTIONAnyone who has been reading my writings for a long time knows of my struggle with issues like rumination.

Nobody canContinue reading “Surgical Destruction of the Past”

Commodore 64: Upgrade to Heatsinks

I’ve written about my Commodore 64 from 1984 before. It’s a machine that I got from someone who had belonged to CSUN [Commodore System User Network]. He maintained it very well and had lots of floppies and manuals. I’ve had this for at least 10 years. Over the past 10 years, I’ve done a numberContinue reading “Commodore 64: Upgrade to Heatsinks”
