Where’s my red Swingline stapler?
And, no, you don’t need a cover sheet for your TPS Reports . . . .
Several weeks ago, as you may remember (or not), I started giving myself a plethora of busy work in order to avoid rearranging the living room to accommodate several computers that used to live there; the computers with which I do testing, (very) low-level developing and generally a lot of digital goofing off.
But with the availability of office space behind the Felton Trading Post in downtown Felton, California, I have moved the herd of computers — and my operations — out of my living room and into the cozy confines behind Kelly’s store and as a neighbor to the trading post’s other tenant, Melanie the bookseller.
So now, from the one-stoplight town six miles north of Santa Cruz and among the old-growth redwoods, I have set up shop. At 6396 Highway 9, Felton CA 95018 (phone number to come), the following entites are open for business: Open Source and Free Software Reporter, a publication keeping up as best it can with FOSS developments; the Tux Project, a national soon-to-be nonprofit promotional clearing house for all things GNU/Linux; and HeliOS Solutions West, serving the western United States as a model for franchisees to offer GNU/Linux installation and support services (as well as providing Santa Cruz County with the same services).
If you’re in the area, stop by. We’ll keep a pot of coffee on for you.
