Main Street Beat: Susanville - Off Here and On There

No matter where you go, there you are. And things are happening. The stuff of news is forever going on. But these days it - that information - just doesn't seem to come around like it used to. It's delivery has changed. And yet the information is still out there, although lying around in a state of languish. As such, it appears that news is static. But it cannot be, for its current - that information - is forever going on in direct or alternate spurts, off here or on there.

With that in mind these views of work being conducted Thursday by the Lassen Municipal Utility District on the site of the Tractor Farm Supply catawampus from the Dollar General and a  stone's throw across Hwy 36 should you be standing at the old Hart's Cafe. That building is also revealing some new hardscape construction around its exterior.

Meet the Code Clinic Experts

Tuesday, August 5, 2014


Whoa. Either by sloppy keyboarding fingers going wherever the desire as opposed to where I thought I sent them, I wind up on a page which shows a server error and bazinga, then it bounces to and so the above.

Interesting pages for this digital-half breed to peruse. It appears that whatever is behind my screen on this laptop is assisting me with an education that is mine for the taking, actually, using. Take would imply some form of ownership I would think, but that's just me. So, since flattery is the highest form of yada-yada, I'll appropriate what I can if allowed by the powers that be - whatever, wherever, they may be. 

Sweet, huh!

Methinks so.

#GNU/Linux #GNU GPL #Linus Torvalds

This morning I finished Glyn Moody's, rebel code.

As a self-described digital immigrant, there's so much for me still to learn. 

Hmm. (R)ebel code is truly an impressive history about about the open source methodology via its production in conjunction with OSS - the open-source software - and for me, it has been a primer on the subject.

I won't list all the players whom have made that history, to date. For those who want to seek the beginnings of Unix/Linux, pick up the book and consume it at your leisure. Or do so from any other means for that matter. 

What you are scanning is not a review either. Nor is it a form of persuasion. It's function is/has/will be benefical in a digital-immigrant fashion sense for those who have already read or may soon read about the 'revolution'. Beneficial in-and-of itself too.

Again, not persuasion, simply a statement from Thistledown.

Pissed Off

Earlier this Thursday morning, as in just 19 hours ago, I

...woke up in the middle of the night to a ghost of Truckee past.

A someone, who thought they knew it all, 

blocked my 'progress' as they were not helpful, 

for being in my way.

And so now that I know, I truly have to wake the hell up

T-Stop (+playlist)

That's so not me in the video but pretty soon it just might be. Got to get the breaking down somewhat more and that leaning forward knees bent thing as well. What's kind of irritating is my old dog status is such that I'm getting my skeletal frame's bones kicked in the ass while trying to master the skills. I've the ability to roll already and slow down, stop... but practice makes perfect, so the saying goes. Words to live by. Word!

* Learned to snowboard at 52 so it's all about the learning curve.

I'm just a fool who has been around the block a few times and still is going to be rolling for quite a bit longer.
There are some major awesome points to my life and one of them is when I graduated from College of the Redwoods, Eureka, CA [A.A.; May,1990] then matriculating up to Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA [B.A., May 1997]
Currently: continuing student of life, pursuing learning as the work-in-progress that I am.
