Ongoing vacation and sometimes work diary :-)

We spent a few days on two short trips which were nice getaways. Earlier we went to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and we just got back from Sonora and a trip to several pretty nice state parks.

Working on a few documents and technical approaches that are continuing labors of love for me. I have done a lot of work around custom Linux solutions both from an implementation and design architecture standpoint and I had decided some months ago to bring all this together into a paper. The focus of this particular work is on Linux and its adoption over a strategic lifecycle. Very interesting evolutionary perspective which perhaps comes from some years of doing exactly that in the Social Sciences (archeology).

I had hoped to move past fvwm but its such an interesting window manager that I am still on it. Lots of things to learn about it. Hopefully tomorrow, I can get some work things done so that I am not terribly behind when I arrive back at $JOB this next week.

One other note... dsifry , I apologize for missing calls from you. I will take care of what I promised. We were on vacation the last week.
