Blog update

In 2003 I started blogging a lot. It was just becoming the cool thing to do back then. I blogged for a few years every day and decided that writing blog posts was a wellness activity I had to do each day to stay well. The writing was healthy self discovery writing. I had more time and no full time job back then. I had school studies which made for interesting blog posts on one blog where I wrote about school subjects and reading books. I even started blogs about my computer game avatars that were a kind of fiction. On one blog I got about 20 spam comments a day that I would have to delete. I still have been getting e-mails telling me some spammer has commented and would I like to approve the comment be published. This would expose me to massive amounts of garbage commercial, or poorly written or sexist writing. Enough. already I just this morning took the ability to comment off line for that blog. I should have done this years ago when I found out the only ones commenting were spammers. It's vary rare to find readers of my blogs that are actual people.

Attending Internet Research 14 in Denver

Finally after a few years of trying to travel to Internet Research I am probably going to make it to Internet Research 14 (IR14). The conference web site for IR14. .

I probably have too many domains.

I have probably registered too many domains. I can not keep up with all the web work in front of me. I also rarely blog anymore.

I have become a professional computer programmer.

All those late nights reading computer books and using the Internet seem to have paid off. I am a professional programmer these days with volunteer duties in Internet studies with some of the world's well known scholars of the Net.

Studies going back to legal studies and in particular criminal law and politics.

Criminal law and politics is a vast subject where murders, wars and other death are woven around themes of politics. Life too and high ideals can be combined with law cases and regional politics to make a study. At present I am reading about privacy, surveillance and a fair amount of technology.

I have been using Dell Computers lately.

The first Dell brand computer I bought was a Dell Mini 9 netbook with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I owned it for a year and a half but rarely used it. I did take it with me to one on campus university class I had last winter, in the winter of 2010. I found it light weight. I ended up giving it to child in my life and left Kubuntu installed on it for that child.

The second Dell computer I bought was an Inspiron 1545 and I used this for 1 year and then sold it to a musican friend who paid me back every month until now he has almost paid it off completely.

I still owe money to Dell Financing for both of these machines.

Blogs at CyborgCitizen back online for writing.

I have not been able to write here since moving this site off Yahoo. I can now blog again because my new hosting provider fixed the Moving Type blog for me today.

I have been fasting for climate justice this past 40 days.

I did some fasting for climate justice these past days. I did not fast for more than two days at a time. In the last days of Copenhagen I was tired and lacking energy at work so did not complete the fast or celebrate with others.

I opened two linux-netbook sites

I was inspired by this site http://www.linux-netbook.com to open these two sites to provide information about Linux on Netbooks. http://www.linux-netbook.org and http://www.linux-netbook.net

My latest computers are Dell laptops because of easy financiing.

I was able to buy a Dell Mini 9 netbook and enjoy carrying it around all the time. I do not use it for email or money stuff but enjoy social networking with it and reading online documents. I also use a Dell Inspiron Laptop with 15 inch screen and use this for Eve Online. The Mini 9 runs Ubuntu and the Inspiron runs Vista 64 bit and also Debian 5.0. I did have the Dell Inspiron running Kubuntu for a while which is a KDE version of Unbuntu but I found it very limited so switched back to Debian.
