Why I use Linux

I was once one of the Windows refugees Linux blogs are talking about. I had a laptop I really needed to get an operating system on -- any operating system on to get it running.

I use it purely because it works, and given the right distribution it just works. I have rarely had the hardware nightmares people talk about. In fact, I think I have only ever had one wireless dongle not work out of the box.

How over this, really sums it for me:

Coffee Naps.

I wonder if these work.  I have been reading a lot about these lately. Basically, the idea is to take a hit of espresso than take a 10 to 20 minute power nap, and you will be more refreshed and awake.

I really don't have much to say on it, because this is all pretty straight forward. One of the things I like about this song is that she isn't asking him to take care of her, or putting herself in a place of dependence. She's just telling the dude that he's got to grow up and take some damned responsibility for himself.  When everyone stands up and becomes responsible, it makes for a stronger family, stronger community, and a stronger society.

This goes for me and women.

On a side note, I did come across it listening to this:

Reach Out, Touch Faith

Just because I haven't posted any decent writing in a long while. It is completely unrelated to anything going on. It is just a little drabble based on a story a friend told me this week.

"Reach Out, Touch Faith"

I met my Playmate at hospital after I broke my arm at age 7. A little Indian woman who tells me things, shares things with me. My personal Vishnu, my Kali.

Word is, I couldn't even break my arm right. They had to break it for me again. Being good, western doctors they didn't want me to suffer in pain. A shot of morphine to numb me. A shot of Special K to see the goddess.

Before I knew it, I had a new thick cast as a new friend promising she would stay by my side.

.... Together, we will make the world burn.

Now, where did I put my drugs?
