Email's got me down...

In true me style, I have been looking for a great team communication / collaboration platform for my Linux Users Group.  I found Kato.im last night, which offered a great selection of free services, and being that the group is completely volunteer and unfunded, free is important.   I got signed up, invited team members working on an open source project for one of the LUG members doing charity work, then discovered that the kata site is closing down on 8/31/15...

I'm always late to the game....not that our free use would have helped the Kato folks, but honestly, their offering is 100 times better than any of the other options I found, including Slack, HipChat, and the big boys in that space.  

It's a complete shame.

A great movie from way back.  For those who love a silly comedy that's mindless and let's you laugh...check out PCU.  You'll recognize multiple starts that weren't quite stars yet when this movie was made.

I'm not that social, so I'm trying to work on it.
Introduction
Martial Artist, Physicist, Musician, Computer Guy (that's what my family calls me)...I strive to do as much as I can with the short amount of time I"ve been given.

Simple rules for getting me to follow you, comment, +1 you and so on...don't be the person who just posts to do it, but bring some fun, interesting, or somehow different content.

Don't be the person who posts every mundane detail of everything you do, and don't post pics of your cat, dog, or child dressed like your cat or dog...I just don't find animal stuff that nifty...once in a while (like once every month) is okay.

I have no isms to speak of (racism, sexism, etc.), and I just want to enjoy the posts and comments.  I hope you'll enjoy with me.
