an apple pie from scratch
by john johnston Saturday, July 23, 2016

From twitter I see stellar has gone. I had an account but never got into it tha much. I did use posterous a lot which gave me a great deal of hassle when that service shut down. 

I am a fan of the domain of ones own  idea, delightfully named by Jim Groom, which is one of the reasons I like this 1999.io. I am also enjoying the thrift & geekiness of hosting this on a Raspberry pi.

I am remembering that the PI's system & stored data is on a fragile SD card, these can be ruined by a careless shutdown and I've got no backup strategy. 

I also am reminded that:

If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.
