Finally getting around to migrating my server (which is currently running at a dedicated hosting place) to a virtual server over at RootBSD (http://www.rootbsd.net).

Nikola Tesla is the most fascinating and probably one of the most forgotten inventors/physicists to walk the Earth. If you don’t know who he is, turn off your computer, your lights, etc, and throw away any fluorescent bulbs, and while you are at it, turn off your radio.
I just finished watching the movie ‘Sicko’. Makes me sad to see the United States in is such a poor position health care wise. Why does Cuba have a better health care system than USA? That makes no sense, and it pisses me off. Why are the healthcare companies destroying our nation? Is it worth the money? I guess it must be.
