Installing Emacs on CPanel with GoDaddy.com Web Hosting
Once upon a time last year, I installed " emacs " -- an old UNIX command-line editor that I got used to in college -- onto my GoDaddy.com CPanel server. Today, I had to do it again on a new server, but I couldn't remember exactly what I did last time becaus...

Northern Exposure
I wanted to take a few moments to jot down some thoughts about Kamp Kenawachee -- a college experience in the wilderness of Alaska.

Dream Thrum
June 26, 2018

Went antiquing with Kristi and other people. Found old 8-track or similar cassette player that, when you turned it on, shifted you into another dimension. It was kind of like augmented reality, as in you'd still be in the same room, but thing...

Clouds in My Covfefe
Yes, Donald Trump is still president. It wasn't a dream; it wasn't a nightmare. But no, he's not getting much done. Ironically, he's a lot like Barack Obama. He saw his election as a directive to "fix" government, but after getting in office, he realized ho...
