Ah, Internet... I had almost forgotten you were there.

But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane [you aren't alone]
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft a-gley, [often go awry]
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promised joy.
… -Robert Burns (Courtesy

Sometimes things just fall apart.

For those unaware, I no longer work for Canonical. (I am not a Canonical/Ubuntu hater, I simply don't work there any longer) Among other things that have happened over the last year plus, I no longer live in North Carolina, I no longer own a Mercedes and I no longer have long hair. :) (The sumer heat and moving belongings took care of the decision there) I won't get into the whys and wherefores, but I will say that things have changed, overall, for the better. I am learning new things everyday about life, myself and others. I'll start back posting some of them here. I think my next post will have to do with some Windows installation testing I have been doing, but time will tell.

I leave you all with that for now. More to come.



  1. Welcome back to the internet, JFo :)

    1. Thank you sir. Sorry for the very late reply. :)

  2. I love that poem by Burns. I say gang aft agley often in my head because something is always happening ;)

    1. It has always been a favorite. I have said 'gang aft agley' to people before. It always nets me confused looks.
