Who am I
and why am I here?
My name is Steven Rosenberg. Most of what I write these days has something to do with technology. I'm not an "early adopter." I think before I leap. I've got a lot of old hardware, and I like making it work.
Most of my computers run the Debian GNU/Linux operating system. I also run OpenBSD and Ubuntu -- and even Windows when necessary.
I promise to write about guerrilla large-appliance repair in the near future. Aside from saving money, I've gotten a lot of satisfaction from repairing my own appliances and working on my home's electrical and plumbing systems. Knowing that a dryer is spinning (and actually drying things) due to my own effort is a beautiful thing.
I'd like to write less about technology and more about other aspects of life and work. We'll see how that plays out.
