Heidi had a great time and got a crack full of snow! I ended up being the sled dog, and after a week of probably Covid, that was hard! So much fun!

Please keep my fellow Coloradans in your prayers. Thousands lost their homes yesterday in fires. Should be getting some snow in a few hours, which should help.

@neauoire I was wondering how you deal with data storage and protection while living aboard Pino. I haven't noticed the topic on your website, but your book(should arrive next week!) might address it. Cloud storage, a bunch of thumb drives with zfs? I have so much data that needs sorting/deleting and I was curious about your methods.

How long would it take an IBM 7090 mainframe from 1961 to do the equivalent of a week's worth of work from a modern laptop? Apparently, over 14 billion years, which is about the age of the universe as most scientists reckon. Also, the 7090 cost $20 million in today's money.

I got @mary a bunch of assorted old coins and they are really neat. They are a testament to the fact that we, and even our governments, are very temporary in the big picture. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”

One of my favorite things about Christmas is its underlying message. Some avoid this because of "religious" connotations. I think this is a personal loss.
That a God, or one who has all power, would come to man as one of them, not in the splendor of wealth, but in a barn with farm animals, to live a life not of selfishness and indulgence, but to rescue others out of suffering, is what we need. It is the opposite of the systems of the world. It is deeply beautiful. Its worth pondering. Its worth emulating. Its why we spend our own efforts to purchase gifts for others. As a symbol of what really brings change.... selfless love.
If you so choose, Christmas can be a celebration of receiving selfless love. And letting that gift be paid forward to others.
