Worthwhile projects

I've only recently started using Linux myself (Ubuntu) I get paid to know Micrsoft after all.

But the Helios project is one of the coolest things I've come across lately!

If you have a dollar to spare, please consider a donation.

For those who are unaware, or cannot decipher, their mission:

The HeliOS Project builds and gives Linux computers to disadvantaged or exceptionally promising students.
We have found that people are most inclined to support an effort when we do things like this. What a great way to support a project that both aids the Linux Community and the greater community as a whole.

To date this year, we have built and placed 315 Linux computers with kids that normally would not have been able to afford a computer for their school work. Add this effort to our Linux Labs and you have a well-rounded effort that benefits everyone. Our HeliOS Project has inspired others to do the same thing in other communities and we're proud to help them any way we can.

Hello and 73

So I did get a comment so I suppose people are reading.

I have lots going on, so I may just be able to commit to only weekly postings, but I'll see how it goes.

I've, as usual, engaged myself in several different projects.

Since I've added this page to my FCC Callsign, I may as well explain that Ham Radio is one of my latest endeavors, and occupies a lot of my (ha ha)'free time'

No good photos to post yet, but I'll get some scrubbed from my memory cards and see what's worth sharing. :)
