"I am not what you would call a luddite persay. I think
technology improvement is great. I also believe properly applied
innovation and redistribution are great things. All of these put
together make for a great marketplace. What I did forget is that
all things eventually have a limit and remembering these limits is
perhaps just as important as just being aware of them. This column
takes a look at a chain of events I allowed to happen out of over
exuberance, and a slight case of temporary stupidity."
"I for one am not a big fan of pictorial displays - well - at
least not anymore. I used to be, sure, when I had this OS with this
cool desktop environment I had these nifty pictures to show me
stuff. The one important thing I kept forgetting was that my little
home PC (or as I like to call it the little P75 that could, and
does) would eventually decide that these new spiffy managers I was
dragging home once a month would eventually choke the life out of
"Piled on top of that were the never ending additions of servers
(or in some cases some still there) and different distributions
having different servers to run. Once again, shooting myself in the
foot, I always ran on this philosophy of hey I might use that I
ought to install it. Heck, it's a home system and I dutifully keep
my backups (lucky for me)."
