I lost internet and TV like many people this afternoon. No biggie, I just took a nap 😉 It isn’t like there is a ton of worthwhile tech news out there. Everyone is screwing off enjoying the summer weather, myself included.
Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Cinnamon released!
Busy doing other things right now so it will be a while before I fire this up.

Above is a good breakdown. Below is the official page on this.
Marketing Firm Exactis Leaked a Personal Info Database With 340 Million Records
“including phone numbers, home addresses, email addresses, and other highly personal characteristics for every name. The categories range from interests and habits to the number, age, and gender of the person’s children.”
I decided to go back to West Virginia and raft the New River Gorge again. I had my sites set on the Youghiogheny River but my head about exploded trying to find a decent place to stay up there where you can actually do something at night. Someone needs to set up a resort up there like they have in West Virginia. I’ve stayed at ACE Adventure Resort once and I will be doing Adventures on the Gorge for the second time. Those folks have it down with rafting, ziplining, rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding, and more. They have a bar and a restaurant on site and often live music. They have a full range of camping and more importantly cabins with AC! I’ve done all the “camping” I wanted between Northern Germany in the winter and the Saudi desert in the summer.
I also hope to mountain bike a little up in the mountains. When I say “mountain bike” I mean basically trail riding. I had to give up the hard-core stuff. My ego was writing checks my body couldn’t cash anymore and my wife and friends let me know it.
