I surprised my kids with a geeky present, and wound up singing a karoke duet with my 7-yr-old. Fun times! http://changelog.complete.org/archives/9756-singing-with-kids

It's easy to be glum this week, but there is still beauty. A pilot (me) reflects on Morning in the Skies http://changelog.complete.org/archives/9736-morning-in-the-skies
This is morning. Time to fly. Two boys, happy to open the hangar door and get the plane ready. It’s been a year since I passed the FAA exam and became a pilot. Memories like these are my favo…

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

I take the boys to the old maps at the library & museum. Delight ensues, encouraged by 100-yr-old concrete arrows. http://changelog.complete.org/archives/9741-giant-concrete-arrows-old-maps-and-fascinated-kids
Let me set a scene for you. Two children, ages 7 and 10, are jostling for position. There’s a little pushing and shoving to get the best view. This is pretty typical for siblings this age. Bu…

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 …

It’s been awhile due to all sorts of other stuff going on. Nice to see this clogging my inbox again: It really is satisfying to close bugs!

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.
