If computers get too powerful, we can organize them into a committee -- that will do them in.


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 adsbexchange.com where it is combined with data from other volunteers (and presented in a much better webpage than I have on my system) when you select "Global Radar View". This is an interesting visualization of the data from the receiver. Click on 3D at the bottom. "Polar" shows the receiver range by altitude, and "aircraft" shows the planes overhead.





Street party pictures over the years.





Here are some historical Prendergast and Gariepy family photos.





Here are some current family photos. (These are password protected.  Give me a call or  and I'll send you the password.)


Anderson/Laidlaw Family genealogy as collected by my late Uncle Howard Anderson.  (UserID required for updates and viewing details on live people.)
Oh yes, this background is the Anderson tartan, albeit a little faded so you can read this.

Prendergast Family genealogy is also here.  (UserID required for updates and viewing details on live people.)



Music from the early years of the Blackforest coffeehouse at St. Paul's College on the campus of the University of Waterloo.


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


You can   me, and I encourage encrypted email. This is my public key. "Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say." (E. Snowden)

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.
