I’ve always felt like I should be running Debian Linux (for obvious — if you know me — reasons) but never have… until yesterday: I have my Asus netbook now running the newly-released Debian 8 “Jessie” release. So far, about all I have done is install, make sure everything is working, and do a bit of typical performance tuning (I/O scheduler, /etc/fstab options, swappiness) to take advantage of the SSD.
I finally got around to putting the Komodo color schemes I’ve developed and tweaked over the past couple years on GitHub. They’ve each been updated a bit to take advantage of some of the new capabilities in Komodo v9, to be more consistent internally and with each other, and to cover an additional language or two (e.g., Markdown).

He was my grandfather, and one of the coolest people I have ever known. I consider myself blessed to have known him, and I am incredibly grateful that Ian and I were able to stop and see him on the way home from Oklahoma last spring.
