Apple?  Microsoft?  Feh.  This is where it's at.

Open source. Secure. Cutting edge. Lean and mean. Beaucoup free updates. Also: Linus' distro of choice.

Debian GNU/Linux

Google's internal operating system. Not to mention Testing and Sid are probably the first rolling releases. As Ric Flair might say: "Oldest ride, longest line!"

You just never know who you'll find there.  (see also:  blah blah blah)

The local rag.  A newspaper with a conservative editorial tilt, believe it or don't.

The local TV station, broadcasting from downtown Cape's only skyscraper.

My favorite writer and humorist.  He wrote a blog before anyone really even knew what a blog was.

Carl Hiaasen
Another favorite writer, and an inspiration for my efforts at fiction.

Speaking of that river, check out the view from one of my favorite spots on the planet. Boats and trains and bridges, oh my!

Recent Earthquakes in the Central U.S.
At least we don't live in a solid brick house just a stone's throw from the New Madrid Fault.  Wait...what?
