I never understood the ramblings of the people who didn't even seriously try it back then. It was superior even then.

Yesterday, #kansas had a blizzard, dangerous winds, massive fire, tornado threat, and temps in the 80s. Simultaneously.

I drove by a burning bush that day as well. The FD showed up soon afterward but obviously the end is nigh!

The kids loved staying in Pullman cars -- right inside the hotel in Indianapolis. http://changelog.complete.org/archives/9703-all-aboard
“Aaaaaall Aboard!” *chug* *chug* And so began a “trip” aboard our hotel train in Indianapolis, conducted by our very own Jacob and Oliver. Because, well, what could be more …

The TSA costs lives: pushes into cars, causing accidents. 100s of lives lost a month because people didn't fly. http://www.vox.com/2016/5/17/11687014/tsa-against-airport-security

Here's a story I wrote with a bunch of memories and photos from my first year of flight: http://changelog.complete.org/archives/9636-a-year-of-flight
“Dad-o, I’m so glad you’re a pilot!” My 9-year-old son Jacob has been saying that, always with a big hug and his fond nickname for me (“dad-o”). It has now been …

My blog post about visiting a small town: Free cars, sunsets, and Kansas

“Will you have a car I can borrow?” I asked. “Sure. No charge. There’s a sign telling you where to find the key.” It is pretty common for small airports to have a car for a pilot to borrow when flying in. This lets a person go into town for lunch, or…

Story
Tagline
Author, Programmer, Amateur Radio Operator, Dad, Kansan
Introduction
I live out on an old farmstead in rural Kansas that once belonged to my grandparents. The nearest paved road is about 3 miles away, and the nearest town (population 600) is 7 miles away. I have two incredible boys, ages 3 and 6.

My hobby and profession involves programming and system administration. I have released many programs as Free Software, which you are welcome to download, examine, and share. I am a developer for the Debian GNU/Linux operating system, and have been since the late 1990s. I've written some books about programming and operating systems.

Hobbies

I have a lot of them: amateur radio, bicycling, photography, philosophy, literature, rail travel, etc.  There is a better list on my personal website.

Volunteer Interests

I'm a developer for Debian GNU/Linux, chair of the board for Mennonite Bethesda Society (a non-profit operator of a nursing home), a volunteer for the Amateur Radio Emergency Service and Skywarn.

John and Susan are perfect hosts in every way. On arrival, they made us feel as if we were relatives from way back. We had a good time visiting with them in the evening, and when we arrived their grandkids were playing in the backyard pool -- and they invited our kids to join them, which they did! The house is beautiful and spotless. The town is quiet and peaceful, and we all slept well. Our boys love the "Quilt" room, with its "tunnel" and "treehouse" (guess where they wanted to sleep!) We discovered this place last time we passed through the area 2 years ago, and our 9-yr-old still remembered it and requested it again on this trip.
