I’ve recently published another article on OpenSource.com, which I not only wrote but I also took the photographs as well. Here’s the link:

How Linux and maker spaces can strengthen our social fabric

I have to thank Phil Shapiro for his suggestion that I write something for that website. I previously wrote a tutorial on tracing photos in Inkscape back in 2014 but I didn’t get much response to that one. Phil basically encouraged me to try again and he feels that this story might result in gaining a few new contacts that may help me find a new day job to help me pay the bills. Only time will tell whether Phil is right about this or not.

My article is about this event that was held one Saturday afternoon in May at the STEM center Makerspace 125 in Greenbelt, Maryland. It was a workshop titled “Build a PC and Install Linux.” Basically the attendees got hands-on experience in building a PC using donated used computer parts and installing the Ubuntu operating system. Once the attendees finished, they were allowed to take their new PC’s home free of charge. I took a bunch of photos that I uploaded on to Flickr and I showed Phil, who then urged me to write the OpenSource.com article.

But I’m going to show something from that workshop that’s exclusive only to readers of this blog. Like I wrote a few paragraphs ago, I took the pictures that are in that article. However, OpenSource.com only printed a few of the photos I took. So, as a treat to you readers, I’m going to post the outtakes from that article right here. All of them were taken during that workshop.

Here’s one of the Brood X cicadas that had hatched back in May who was crawling around in Roosevelt Center just a few feet away from Makerspace 125. Those bugs were not only big but they made this loud mating call that sounded like a car alarm and they were really noisy between sunrise and sunset.

The rest of the photos outtakes were taken inside Makerspace 125 during the workshop.

Here are some pretty purple flowers in full bloom.

Pretty spring flowers.

On a completely different note, I unearthed something I didn’t expect while I was doing simultaneous spring cleaning and working on taxes. (I did the spring cleaning and decluttering so I could find important papers I needed to get this year’s taxes done.) I found this old 3.5 inch floppy disk which is billed as “Microsoft Learning DOS: Interactive Guide to the PC Operating System.” The wording in faint grey italics said that this disk is for the IBM Personal Computers and compatibles as well as for the IBM Personal System 2 series.

This Belongs in a Museum

This definitely belongs in a museum since modern computers don’t even have floppy disk drives anymore. (LOL!)
