We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Well, that's a shame, but thanks for the update. I suppose one of the geek sites like Wired or C-Net mentioned it, but those swung far to the left ages ago and I dropped them.
I note this line from the post:
"Unix , of course, became the inspiration for newer operating systems including Linux and Apple's iOS."
I was a master of the UNIX-inspired AmigaDOS language during my Amiga days, which we called "a really smart UNIX". Compared to what came before it (decorum prohibits me from mentioning names lest it scare any children in the room), UNIX was a godsend.
