North Dakota is loosing population. South Dakota’s population is growing in absolute terms, but shrinking relative to the entire population of the US. South Dakota’s legislature is confronting the issue. They are banning abortion and, no doubt, lining their pockets with contributions from right wing pressure groups.
I am, once again, abandoning my attempt to use my linux server to share my HP Deskjet 880c among the Windows computers in my house. I find CUPS, the common unix printing system ( trademarked by “Easy Software”), uncommonly unintuitive and impenetrable. Or, if not CUPS itself, then the way it is deployed on Ubuntu/Debian.
Maybe the next time I experience a trancendent state of bliss I’ll try setting it up again. For now though, I don’t need the aggravation.
