Update

December 7, 2020

Not much has happened since I last wrote. Things are looking a little background as there are vaccines coming so the covid situation may improve in the upcoming months. It seems to be out of control in the US now.

Various problems

June 30, 2020

I haven’t written in a while. I am doing OK but there are things that I am facing right now. COVID-19 is causing a disruption in conditions where I live. I do not have it nor odes anyone I know have it. I am glad for that. But it has caused a departure from normal conditions where I live and it may continue to do so in the future. I may write about this topic again.

Happy New Year

January 1, 2020

I am sorry I haven’t posted for a while. I have had computer problems. I will be installing various operating systems in various computers in the coming months. Right now I am using Windows 10 and chrome for most things. I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays.

Voting

October 25, 2018

I have already voted. I have registered to vote by mail which is very convenient. I have voted exclusively for Democratic party candidates. I will probably continue to do so for a long time as the Republican party has shifted so far to the right. I think the Republican party has become Trumps’s party and that change has been deep and will be long lasting. I have not supported the Republican party for a long time and in my opinion it has taken a change for the worse.

Linux upgrade

August 17, 2018

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 from 16.04. 16.04 was ok. I have been on 18.04 for a few days with a smooth upgrade and no problems except a couple of minor glitches.

Power problems

November 23, 2017

I think I wrote about having problems with electric power in a previous post. We have now replaced the fusebox so we should have better performance in that area. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!

Various Problems

June 30, 2017

I haven’t posted here for a while. I have had as the title suggests had various problems. I have had a power outage then after I got that fixed My computer stopped working and then our internet went out. We ended up changing ISP’s which is good because the new one doesn’t have a data cap. ¬†Apparently the old one didn’t support our old modem. I got the computer working and I am posting this using the Linux operating system again. The problems I have had with this computer are related to hardware.

 

Happy Thanksgiving

November 21, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US. Recently I wrote about a problem I had with Linux. I think now that it is not related to Linux but was a hardware problem. In any case the problem has not repeated itself and I am glad.

 

More on Linux

September 5, 2016

I have recently had some trouble with Linux. Ubuntu wouldn’t load. I had to run fsck to fix it. I am not sure exactly what the problem was or what caused it. I may have similar problems. I will wait and see.

Upgrade

August 6, 2016

I have upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04. It made it easier to install polymake. So I installed it. It looks interesting. So far 16.04 is running smoothly for me.
