As can be seen by looking at this site, there hasn’t really been much in the way of activity for some time. The reason why was life in and of itself. It happens. I won’t go into details, but I had to take a break from the site.
While I was thinking about finding ways to revive the site yet again, something occurred to me.
I wasn’t having fun with it. Combine that with the fact that we’re in a political environment in which we aren’t as willing to think outside the box, and we have what’s called a no win situation.
Then we have individuals who are Revolution for Sale®.
The funny thing is, there are plenty of things to hit a certain radio talk show host in the head with, yet people are going with things that are so weak that it makes me virtually face palm and head desk myself. There are legitimate things that can be used to expose this individual for the person he really is.
Case in point:
I can try to point these things out, but the audience may not be in the mood to listen, and who can blame them? We’re in an environment where we’ve been yelling at each other for so long that we can’t see the forest from the trees.
The perspective of there only being things that are Black and White is what has been hurting us more than anything, and I don’t want to be in that environment at the moment.
I want to have fun again, and give people something to smile about.
What better way to do that than to do something that is actually fun? That is why I started RetroX86. I have been looking at the history of personal computers for some time, and was excited for the first time for some time.
So this isn’t goodbye or see you later.
I’m just setting this site aside for the time being. You’ll still be able to access past content, including the podcasts and magazine issues. The part that said, “Entertain Yourself….” is something I take seriously.
If your heart isn’t in it, don’t do it. My heart is somewhere else at the moment, so I will be doing that.
Thank you for visiting, and please check out the new site.
I founded The *Nixed Report in 2005 after realizing that there were so many forms of entertainment out there that was either being ignored, minimized, or misrepresented. I use *nix-like systems to this very day and that includes Android and Chrome-based devices.
