It’s sad to have to shut down my site, but basic web hosting from NetSol has gotten too expensive. Maybe one day, if I become rich and famous, I will create another.

"It was all a lie."

"In the nearly three years since January 6, 2021, no genuine evidence has come out that could substantiate Trump’s stolen-election claims." (p287) Cheney, L. (2023). Oath And Honor A Memoir and a Warning. Little Brown and Company.

Trump is an insane MAGA RINO and a traitor.

Everyone who supports him is supporting the termination of the Constitution and the end of the American Experiment. They will have ended everything the Founding Fathers and generations who gave their lives to support and defend the Union fought to preserve. If Trump becomes president, that great nation will have perished from the Earth.

Jesus versus Trump

Recently, Donald Trump has been claiming to be just like Jesus. To help my historically-challenged, Christian nationalist friends I have devised a handy table so you can see just how alike these two really are.

It was a good run

I started programming in 1979 and have worked with IT for over forty years. I have experience in various fields, including mainframe computers, minicomputers, UNIX System Administration, Oracle database administration, COMSEC, Information Assurance, Solaris System Administration, Network Security, and Program and Project Management. I received a renewal notification from Network Solutions for my Unix web hosting. The cost of the basic package is nearly $500 per year. There are much cheaper solutions out there, so I have opted to cancel my hosting services from them. After 24 May 2024, this site will cease to exist until such time as I find another provider.

I'm working part-time at the Giant-Wegberg bike shop as a mechanic. I've biked in Europe since 2002. In 2015 I joined the Air Force Cycling Team and rode with them until my retirement in 2018. I currently ride with my local German radsport club, SC-Wegberg. I'm training and planning to ride the Scottish North Coast 500 in 2024.
