There are various things other than work that keep me busy.
- My House
I own a nice house in Oklahoma City.
There is always SOMETHING I should be doing with my house like
cleaning, mowing the grass, or painting the master bedroom.
- My MAME Machine
Multi-Arcade Machine Emulator
Several years ago I bought a dead Street Fighter II arcade game,
scooped out the guts, and replaced them with a standard PC computer
and monitor. For the controls, I bought an ancient keyboard that
still used electrical switches, and then wired the keyboard brain
into arcade controls. Now I get to play old games like Pacman and
Centipede whenever I want to, and I use the extra space in the
cabinet for my rack mount servers.
- Open Source Software
Open source is the best!
I use a lot of open source software for my personal and business needs.
Open source software is free software developed by indiviuals and
companies. Some open source software you can run on Windows, like
Open Office to replace Microsoft Office. I personally use Ubuntu
for all my laptops and workstations, and Zentyal for all my servers.
I have a token windows virtual machine for the few pieces of
software that do not have decent open source equivalents.
