Ok, well the concept of PHP comments are dead, seeing that my webserver (student.claytonstate.net) does not support anything other than HTML. Comments will be here someday… Damn the CCSU server, full speed ahead!

Recent news is that I have been completely humbled at the installation of Debian onto my laptop. Yes Brian, Debian – me; I am running Linux now 🙂

And some more brain food to crunch on. I got this in an email:

“The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”

– Alexander Tyler (a Scottish history professor at The University of Edinburgh)

It seems to me like we are going from the abundancy to complacency phase. Few people give a shit about anything outside of the realm of consumer electronics and DVD box sets anymore.
