Its fucking hot out there.
If you've noticed a decrease in blog posts over the last week I can explain. For several years I've depended on a crystal clear wifi connection compliments of my generous downstairs neighbor. If you follow this blog with any regularity you know that we also share a cat. The second Great Recession (Third Great Depression?) is starting to claim a fresh batch of victims. My neighbor lost her job and axed the wifi to save costs. Prepared to pay for my own wifi ($50 a month!?!WTF!) my reticent willingness to engage the legitimate economy hit another snag. Even when you'd like capitalism to do its part and pitch in, it never seems up to the job (with no capital gains to my name, I guess I don't really matter). The wave of recent federal and state budget cuts caught up with poor ole' Colby last week. I can no longer claim to benefit from a part-time minimum wage job with no health insurance. . . so it looks like wifi (and BSD) will have to go on furlough. In the off chance you aren't unemployed yourself, and would like to help, I've added a new donation button to the right.
I'll also accept donations of industrial grade fertilizer (by the truckload only please) or sharpshooter lessons (provided you know the location of the Speaker of the House or at least two conservative members of the Supreme Court).
If you are in the Secret Service, thats a joke. . . kinda. ;-)
