6 January 2019 - M/V So...fea Deck Log,
Very busy aboard making computer changes and upgrades PLUS restructuring the outputs of Blogs, Web Sites, Podcast Radio, and memberships/servers/etc. it is insanity to have all of this going on at once ! Moved some hard drives around, and ended up with one desktop server and two laptops. Rejuvenated the radio show for 2019, and will broadcast hopefully before the end of January again,
The Linux systems won out (hands down), the new laptop came loaded with Microsoft edge and the November issue of Windows10... what crap !! it took less than a week for me to delete that Operating system COMPLETELY ! and reload it with Linux. utterly primitive and kindergarten level -expensive-complicated Microshit
Lots of river debris this year, not big logs like last year, mostly longer (25+ foot) and 10-14 inch diameter, but extreme twigs, reeds, and wood chips coming down river, the 3 foot slack-chain (See image) gap in our harbor boom connector allows a great number to come into the harbor, we are situated directly "in" the flow path, so whatever comes over the chain hits our hull at 3 MPH and goes underneath us.... once in, it is trapped and simply cycles ramming us over and over and over with the tides.
