Worried?

It's just good to laugh sometimes about things we can't do much about. Try not to fret too much, you can make more problems for yourself that way.

नमस्ते = Namaste
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you in which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace.
When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.

A significant part of why I've moved away from proprietary operating systems, software, and even file formats is I have no trust in anything which cannot be absolutely unrestrictedly audited and peer-reviewed.

When I have the money to do so, my intent is to support companies like Purism and Fairphone.
Everything is in hand. With this tapestry... and with patience, there is nothing one cannot achieve.

Pulled my old Atari 800 with a tape drive out of the closet last night.

It is rare that someone can feel good about their most current computer is over 12-years old. As far as I can tell my Athlon X2 4200+ is not vulnerable to Spectre or Meltdown. :D

OTOH, my computer is prone teenage outburts. For example, last night the system abruptly logged out all by itself - logs showed sdh2 was overheating. Weird thing, that is an ancient drive I salvaged from a Win-95 era laptop and slapped into a USB housing - it does not have sensors, was not turned on at the time, and has only one partition.
