We are not so special
Ralf made interesting comments

Started working on setting up the piers of the 10x10 deck. Went to the local lumber yesterday and got some 2x4x10 planks and six pier blocks.
Played around with Fedora after installing all packages. Turns out the fast PC I knew ran a little slower. Also noticed the new desktop layout, ala-Mac. File system browser has a new behavior similar to BeOS, was it called spatial? Anyway, the latest Fedora is better than the previous one, though.
I had to let the Mac go as I didn't have any reason for using that beautiful machine. It turns out that all that GUI glitter didn't have any effect on me. Maybe because it was the old G4? It would be nice to get the G5 and run some number crunchers, see how fast that beauty runs.
Learning Method: Lancaster-Montessori
The results of the experiment turned out pretty good. I was surprised to see how the system did the job of making the kids(?) perform well. I think I've found a way of improving the 'pedagogy' that were practiced at the turn of the century. The experiment is still running and will conclude after 7 to 10 years.
There is now a methodology after years of trial and error. It is able to monitor progress by tracking quizzes, assignments and other tests.
The goal is to save money. College money. I think it is doable.
