The cycle of software

Tonight I found myself looking for scripts or a software application to install to help me move some data from an old hard drive.  This drive had some pictures and documents that I wanted to keep, and no it was not backed up ... but that is another conversation.  The drive is special ... well not in that way, but that it came from an old Mac and is HFS+.  So HFS+ is not seen by Windows without a driver, but Linux can see and read the disk just fine.  Okay ... I will save all those details for another post.

So, why did this spark me to write this post.  Well, I was able to find a driver for Windows that could read HFS+ drives and I remembered using a GUI for RoboCopy.  But even if I could find it would it be up-to-date?  If not, would it run on Windows 10?  So that got me to thinking.  Windows, Mac OS, and Linux are ever evolving and so are the apps that run on them.  So is an application ever done, ever complete?

Twitter milestone = 10,000

Today will mark a milestone for me on Twitter, the day I reached 10,000 tweets.  As I am writing this I have one tweet remaining until I hit the 5 digit mark.  I started on Twitter with an account back in 2009, which I mainly used to keep up with people and things that I was interested in, then later created a new one for personal business and professional chatter.

I know many of you have been around much longer than I, and I wonder if you can remember either when or what you tweeted for your 10,000 tweet.  If so leave a comment here and let me know what you did for number 10,000.

There are a number of people I would like to thank for the great conversations over the past few years, and I know I am not going to get everyone out there, so just look to my followers for the complete list.

Okay here we go ...
