I have always wanted to visit Jaswant Thada in Jodhpur, India. One reason is that the images of the surrounding geology that I have viewd on the Internet remind me of the southwestern United States. I have explored many of the ancient ruins made by the Anasazi and this area of India seems to have the same appeal to my "got to see this place" nature.

Lately I have seen this image of Jaswant Thada show up on my desktop on my computer. I have Bing Desktop as my wall paper so when the image of Jaswant Thada shows up I start dreaming of being there sitting on the river bank and just relaxing.Paying a visit to this temple is on my bucket list

Welcome to Windows 10

Image
I have been using the developers release of Windows 10 for several months on several computers at work and at home. I decided to upgrade to the production version on my home computer a few weeks ago.  The problem that I faced is that I did not own any Microsoft software that could be upgraded.  The last version of Windows that I purchased was Windows Vista.  I have been running various versions of Linux and FreeBSD on my computers at home so what to do.

What I started doing a few weeks ago was watching the prices of older full versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8 on Amazon.  I knew if I purchased a version of those versions of Windows that I could upgrade to Windows 10.  I finally purchased Windows 8.1 for about $109.

So I am happy to report that after two failed attempts at letting the auto installer perform the update I am on a production version of Windows 10.  The key thing that I learned about this update is that I had to be present for it to fully install.  I initially thought th…

I purchased a new tent for the Georgia Bike Fest. I ordered it from Amazon along with two Coleman cots.  I wanted to go through setting it up so I would get an idea of how it worked. I set it up in my back yard.  Sylvia and I plan on doing more camping in the future.
