Spring brings new theme

Winter seems over, so I have changed the theme here. Rather than continuing to fool around with the theme I was using, which had troubles, I’ve switched to this one, which I like for its clean look. I may customize it a bit eventually, or change it again, but I like the default appearance for […]

Time for a change

Early in 2003 I started e-mailing Ender’s Review to people who had expressed an interest in receiving a compiled list of short quotes or summations for interesting web items with links to those items. At first, the Review mostly focused on things closely related to political issues, but over time it spread its focus further […]

I’ve been really busy…, will post more soon.

Almost a month has passed since I put up an entry last. I have several excuses, but I want to post a short explanation today and get to some better posts in the next few days. About the time of my last post Wally Conger tagged me with a “meme” and I will post a […]

Merry Christmas

The latest Ender’s Review was produced on Linux, using Open Office, Quanta Plus and FileZilla. (The HTML e-mail edition was hacked together, but maybe next week I’ll do better on that.) My turkey will have to wait a little bit. This “merry gentleman” goes now to take a little rest before the cooking marathon later […]

Progress on projects

Although for the last few days I have had a horrible cold with a congested head and frequent sneezing spells, I have made some progress on several fronts. However, I begin with the “bad news” — I probably won’t have a new movie review ready before the New Year. I have several in various states […]

Hardware, weather, etc . . .

Although I have been making some progress on projects lately, most of that progress has had very little externally perceptible effect as yet. I also have had some weird hardware problems lately on what has been my primary system (‘Crypto-Sony’ running Windows XP). I am gradually switching to my other system (Kubuntu) for most of […]

The payoff begins

Before starting in earnest on developing the new TWE process, having a break from the old TWE chores has allowed me some time to streamline the way I do Ender’s Review (ERev).

Give Up On Unfree software

Using a Mac (with OS X) may be marginally “cooler” than using a PC with Vista, but in either case who will really control your computer? Will it really be you?

TWE interrupted

I have suspended producing the This Weekend (TWE) page (and TWE coming) until I can develop improvements to it. The weekly task of gathering the data, the way in which I do it now, interferes with the amount of time available to improve the function. I had hoped to continue it as I developed the […]

Feeling Gutsy today

After initially upgrading my K machine’s “Edgy” to “Feisty” but not getting the “Gutsy” version upgrade option offered in Adept Manager, eventually I found good  instructions that had all key pieces of information (especially enabling the “‘Pre-released updates” repository),
