The internet has become a shithole of epic proportions in most ways.

I haven't owned an Apple product since my Apple ][+ computer. In light of recent developments at Apple, I can safely say that I never will again. Btw, Wozniak was way cooler than Jobs.

I really like seeing people forging ahead despite difficult circumstances. Those are the people I admire the most.
