time to simplify

yep...as the new year progresses, I have to simplify many things...too many computers, archives, sites, passwords. I'm getting too old for all this. Too many domain names, accounts, with their associated complexities. Too much to stay on top of, and I have more important tasks that need some additional attention this year. Maybe it's time to finally grow up.
Actually, I'm trying to knock off a bunch of issues. I'll probably let a couple of hosting accounts lapse, since it does not make alot of sense to continue to pay for something that is only a hobby, especially when free alternatives exist. In this respect, Google is the ticket, for they will host your domain email, calendar, apps, bookmarks, blog etc. Also, since the addition of LINKY to my arsenal, self-hosting is easy and quiet. Drupal is certainly a nice option, but I'm too lazy to learn SQL properly to take real advantage of it, and upgrades are a pain.
So there you have it...I'll likely point tomrowsell.com to this space...BTW Happy New Year !!

During this season, I do much thinking about snowstorms, power outages, survival etc. I like to think that most bases are covered. I have enough firewood to last me into next winter, so a power outage is really only an inconvenience at worst. Of course winter helps in that the only real electric dependency, Refrigeration, is offset by the fact that it's cold. However, and to get to my point, I'm a little obsessed with the whole concept off "off-grid refrigeration". It's actually a childhood throwback on two fronts. Let me explain, first I remember going to our "camp" in the summer. Routinely, considerable quantities of Soda Pop (we just called it "drink") were lugged to the camp. Sometimes it was Co-op brand tin cans, Pepsi, or even green bottles of Mountain Dew complete with the hillbilly exclaiming "it'll…
