One of the things I don't like my laptop is it didn't come with an SSD drive, but instead has a slow 5200 RPM Hard Drive. I'm going to add an 512 GB SSD drive come late April, which will make it boot and run Linux much quicker. I'm waiting for April, so I can install Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty when I get the new drive.

I had gotten away in iframes in years past, but I’ve started to use them more on the blog, because they really are the best way to include maps, charts, and other content without having to override stylesheets.

Internet is just expensive, and just another bill to pay.
