Random thoughts about using computers to do things. Presently using an Alienware Aurora Desktop (Windows 10) , a Dell XPS 13 developer edition (Ubuntu 19.04) a Dell Precision M2800 laptop (Windows 10), a Mac Mini, an Apple iPhone 7, an Apple iPad 6, a Samsung Galaxy S8, a Samsung Tab A (2018), an iPod Classic 160GB plus CD's, DVD's, USB keys, and zip disks everywhere. Enjoy learning computing with me.

I worked on my old 486 laptop project early this morning. Soon I hope the 16MB DRAM PCMCIA card will arrive and I will install Debian 3.0 r2. I got the ethernet PCMCIA card working a bit by experimenting with modconf and loading and unloading modules in the kernel. I got the traffic lights to light up on the router and the cable coming out of the ethernet card, the dongle. But they would not blink meaning no transmission is happening. I was also not able to ftp from the laptop. I decided to scrap the x install and work on getting some programming done using the GNU compiler collection and maybe using Elvis and trying out it's highlight syntax functions. I also tried to install tex.
