IT’S CLICHÉ, BUT IT’S TRADITION–THE “INTRODUCTION” POST

Hello, everyone! My name is Robert (feel free to just call me “Bob”), and this is, in essence, my first *real* blog. I have written brief snippets on blog sites in the past, but I always just went back and deleted them. Well, I’m turning over a new digital leaf! I love to write, and write is just what I will do.

I am a partially blind geek, short and simple. I am a husband, a father, a student, a technology enthusiast, and so much more. Am I a guru? Not quite yet, but I hope to be in the future. The first step to becoming a guru, in my opinion, is that of learning that there is always more to learn. learning is a process which should never be discontinued. When one stops learning, one loses the potential future value of living an educated life.

I am a Linux user, so there will be many Linux-related posts on this blog. I believe in software freedom–not piracy, but freedom–and for this reason as well as many others I made the switch to Linux in 2007. I have no regrets, and I live with the joy of knowing that I OWN my system. Never heard of Linux and want to know more? Here is a Wikipedia article about Linux for your reading pleasure.

“I’m not blind! ” That’s okay. Feel free to follow this blog anyway. Even if you yourself are not blind, you may find information within this blog which could be helpful to someone you know who is blind, or someone whose path intersects yours in life. Also, many topics here may not be written just for blind individuals (though many will be). I delve into a lot of different areas, including but not limited to some of the following:

  • Using Linux as your primary desktop operating system
  • Using live Linux media to back up, diagnose, and repair damaged computer systems
  • Using free and open source technologies as replacements to commercial software
  • Using your computer with your eyes closed (literally)
  • And so much more!

I hope that you will find this blog insightful and helpful. If you enjoy what you read here, please let others know about this blog’s existence.

I know how valuable time can be, and so I sincerely appreciate the time you take to rad my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
