So it seems that Microsoft has developed an embedded device OS distribution called ACS and that this OS is based on the Linux kernel.
That’s kind of neat. They’ve been consuming Linux for quite some time. It’s nice to see that they’re producing some, too. Thank you for being productive members of this community, Microsoft!
I spent a couple of weeks straight in the city. This is the first time I’ve done this since I’ve started working with Scott and the crew at RP. It was an overwhelming period of my life. Lots of social dynamics were fluid in a way that they have not been before. I had recently had my bicycle stolen and my 36th birthday. I invited people who I love to our space on Orcas and think that they were only there out of a sense of social obligation. I spent a good deal of time thinking about my influence and impact on the world. I spent time contemplating how I’ve never lived on my own and have never been ultimately responsible for my own well being. I have always relied on others to provide the comfort that would be best coming from myself. Self received a lot of coverage in this phase of my life. Perahps to the point that I might also consider myself to maybe be the most self-centered person I know. Maybe now that Leo has left us in its wake, we should get on with the regularly scheduled program.
And so. Planning. I’m looking to get a studio where I can work on island. I’m planning on moving the rack to this studio and maybe keeping it in a sound dampening, HVAC-enabled section of the space. A workstation with a dock ready for my presence or return. That sort of thing. Maybe I should put up a sign that says professional services, and another sign that says “no vacancy” so that they know that I’m already working for someone else. :-)
Since a bit before my birthday this year, I have been uncertain where I left my notary seal. I have been trying to stay positive about the situation, but I must admit that I spent an unhealthy amount of time obsessing about its location and whether it has been used in my absence. The last time I remember having it was just prior to my birthday, when I was showing its location and combination to someone who had never seen it before. I have since found myself questioning motives and intentions of this person.
I feel relieved, after two weeks of fretting, to have discovered my seal untouched, where I thought I had left it, and in the same state it was in when last I exposed it to those I think I probably trust. Perhaps I can continue to trust these people with the contents of my REDACTED and the administrative keys to the kingdom. Or republic. Or whatever it’s hip to call this place these days.

The time of course is now. What other time is there?
