Buy a coffee

I launched this blog in 1995. Since then, we have published 1603 articles. It's all free and means a lot of work in my spare time. I enjoy sharing knowledge and experiences with you.

Your support

Have you learned something new by reading, listening, or watching my content? With your help, I can spend enough time to keep publishing great content in the future.

A small slice of my data processing time each month

It's ongoing work running this site and what's really great is ongoing support. Here's a sense of what goes into this site: research topics for discussion. Manage the Tech stuff: website, SEO, graphics, email, back-end servers, DNS routing, edge servers. Create advertisements and load the campaigns in Google Ads. Manage the social media forums (Facebook, Reddit, Twitter). Write updates to the blog. Keep GitHub up-to-date.

$4.50 — A large cappuccino at my local

Things just work better with coffee! I like to take the kids to school then grab a cappuccino from my local on the way home before beginning the things that take mental energy.

$8.99 — A month of Netflix for some quiet nights in

A lot of the work on this happens after hours when I should be relaxing on the couch. Help me make it so and I promise to keep off the devices for a bit!

$11.50 — Fund a month of email delivery

This site sends out thousands of emails every month. For that volume and to ensure deliverability, I need to pay MailChimp.

$20 — Pay for one month of AWS storage fees

Websites are not free. The storage alone takes some cash. If you are willing to lighten the burden, we can keep this site up online.

$30 — One hour's pay for a graphics artist

Art doesn't create itself without a hand to guide it. I can't draw, so I need to pay others to help.

$45 — Pay a full-stack web developer for one hour

Much of the work on this site happens on weekends which means giving up time with the kids. Help me pay the developers so I can give my kids more time.

Familiar story 🔗

While the following videos speaks directly about the Austrailian Governement, it rings very familiar with how other countries (e.g. USA) have operated a business-as-usual attidute when it comes to the topic of Global Crisis (“Climate Change”). Every major state power is basically telling everyone “Fuck You…” 🖕🏻

No one cares about Global Warming until they are suffocating in it. In a few years, “global warming” will be escalated to “global climate crisis” if we continue to ignore the planet. While we all sit back and hope that someone else will fix the problem, it continues to grow worse. There are no new technologies that can effectively save us from impending doom.

Collaborate or die 🔗

We all must collaborate together to make change possible. We MUST act! It can be as simple as:

  • Recycle as much as possible.
  • Minimize our consumption of animal products. [Go “vegan” would be much better.]
  • Reduce the amount of water, electricity, and gas we use.
  • Use public transportation more… Or, better yet: walk, run, bicycle, or skate to your destinations.
  • Vote for policies that aren’t just “green” but are designed to ensure our kids’ children can enjoy the planet. [Stop voting for greedy, self-interested politicians‼️]

Alone it is very hard to make a difference. But together, change is definitely in-reach. A single drop of rain doesn’t really impact anything. But a hail-storm of torrential rain, will drown a town. Let our voices grow to be the hurricane that sweeps out those corrupted politicans! We should not rerly on the elected officials to have our best interests. We should be driving the message and the solutions to advert a more serious Climate crisis - extinction.
