Amiga X5000…..

Tue ,31/10/2017

I have had an AmigaOne gathering dust next to my desk for several years now, and the last time I tried to fire it up, nothing happened – I suspect the power supply is bad. But after reading this, I may have to try again…..while I usually use Fedora most days, it’s certainly not by choice. Linux’s saving grace is that it isn’t Windows, although Win7 is light-years ahead of all the abuse in the past, despite now being two versions behind itself?! 🙂 MacOS I tolerate as always but am also several versions back on that one too – and that’s just fine by me…

Insane…

Wed ,18/10/2017

Anyone who knows me knows – I don’t like heights, and never have. Watching this from the comfort of terra firma is STILL wild to consider. This is the story of the first two guys to have climbed Everest without oxygen, way back in 1978. I recently read the Outside article on it, and found the short movie made at the time (Everest Unmasked), linked below.

It’s about 51 minutes, spends about 12 min giving some of the history and the middle portion details the danger, including two major Sherpa accidents that happened. The last half of the movie is the best part, especially in detailing the two climbers’ final success.

here are two more NOVA links on the topic too, including one from a person involved in the first Everest summit by Sir Edmund Hillary back in the 60’s.

It was worth it…

we had (literally) nosebleed seats that summer when the reunion tour hit Key Arena (as the YT notes show, 7 years *after* this VH1 show), but it was definitely worth it to see one of my all-time fave bands…
