  14. ???????

    My very 1st job as a little kid was getting up at 4am before school and working for 3 brothers hand planting chrysanthemums for .25 cents a hours. That paid for my bicycle which in turn helped me change jobs and get a paper route. Those 3 brothers were saddened to see me go and even offered more money. Edit: This was in Lincoln Nebraska back in the early 60's. But scooting on my butt in the morning across acre rows of flowers and planting ,and hoeing weeds by hand bent over  for a year was enough for me. Then there was the mile walk to school to deal with. Pleasant memory now. Not so pleasant then. It was hard work.  Nice pics there Jram.
  15.   Net of insecurity The kernel of the argument Fast, flexible and free, Linux is taking over the online world. But there is growing unease about security weaknesses.   Story by Craig Timberg Video by Jorge Ribas Published on November 5, 2015 It took years for the Internet to reach its first 100 computers. Today, 100 new ones join each second. And running deep within the silicon souls of most of these machines is the work of a technical wizard of remarkable power, a man described as a genius and a bully, a spiritual leader and a benevolent dictator. Linus Torvalds — who in person could be mistaken for just another paunchy, middle-aged suburban dad who happens to have a curiously large collection of stuffed penguin dolls — looms over the future of computing much as Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs loom over its past and present. For Linux, the operating system that Torvalds created and named after himself, has come to dominate the exploding online world, making it more popular overall than rivals from Microsoft and Apple.   The source: The Washiington Post.   I am one that knows how to take parts of  the article with a grain of salt. Being more knowledgeable about the linux operating system than the author of the article in the Washigton Post. Whose job it is , is to sell newspapers. But a nice read non the less for me.
