Time marches on...

Where does it go? It was October since my last post. Of course trips to Orlando, Tampa, Cannes, France, A week long cruise, San Francisco, Raleigh-Durham and Honk Kong took a bit of time away. I am making slow progress on the home cluster. I finally was able to pick up a half-height cabinet to house it in. Now I just need to get some rails, I need two more sets.

My biggest problem has been getting Oracle Linux to install, seems you need a Linux install to create a Linux install disk from the ISO...or maybe I am just getting too old to deal with it...

If anyone has a OLE install disk they want to send me I would appreciate it!

Reached one of those milestones, I am officially old enough to withdraw from my 401K without penalty tax. Don't know if that is good thing or not!

Published another Novella titled "The Emerald Curse" the third in a series with my Hero Rex Franklin. IN this one he gets pulled into a search for Spanish treasure while installing a tsunami warning network in the Turks and Caicos. You can see it here:

The Emerald Curse

I am still trying to decide if I should self-publish, look into Kindle Scout program or try traditional publishing with the first book in my new series: Suppressors: The Shattering. It posits a world where magic is and always has been real, but it is being suppressed and what happens when this suppression begins to breakdown...

Made it through this years snow fall had to drive in from Atlanta on Friday night just following the storm in. Had a few minor scares coming over the hills into Helen, Ga and down the mountain on the other side but nothing I couldn't handle. Then we just hunkered down up here in Sunset Cove until the snow melted. The driveway and roads are all clear now.

Well, as I make more progress on the cluster I will post. God bless.
