Q: How many Microsoft Programmers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: It cannot be done. You will need to upgrade your house.

Q: How many Linux users does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: Two. One to write the HOWTO-LIGHTBULB, and another to read it.

Some of John's pictures are here.

You can see a map of the aircraft near my receiver location, if my receiver is running. The receiver is a Raspberry Pi with a USB Software Defined Radio (SDR). For more information, Google "PiAware". The receiver feeds this data to where it is combined with data from other volunteers.

My Raspberry Pi also tracks nearby ships. This is a live map of currently tracked ships. They move much more slowly than aircraft!

Street party pictures over the years.

Here are some historical Prendergast and Gariepy family photos.

Here's a link to my cousin's site: Rob Anderson.

You can   me, and I encourage encrypted email. This is my public key. "We don't wear clothes simply because we have something to hide; or lower the blinds in our bedrooms, or close our office doors while on the phone, or seal our letters, or use passwords on our computers. We hide certain things not because they are illegal, or bad, but because they are private." Louise Arbour, Former justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, former international war-crimes prosecutor, former UN human rights commissioner.

Professionally, I am retired. I worked for IBM for over 30 years. My background is in mainframe hardware, software licensing/contracting, and sales training for the mainframe platform (IBM's z Systems). 

Thanks for visiting!  

Previous best up time was 650 days. I've proved to myself that Linux is rock solid stable. Now I'm not going to worry about setting a new record! In case you are interested, I took the machine down to upgrade the disks and the operating system at the 650 day mark.
