The Tramp Lives On

Charlie Chaplin, famed English movie actor, director, musician, and political activist, was born today 119 years ago. Mr. O'Neill does a passable impersonation of "The Tramp" at right, especially in black and white, like most of Chaplin's early movies.

Today is also Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C., when all slaves in the District of Columbia were freed 146 years ago, even before the Emancipation Proclamation was put into effect. Yo!

Still not online, hope to be back shortly with a very nicely upgraded system. Never thought I'd see the day when having 1 GB RAM and a 1 GHz processor was passé.

Processors come in gigahertz, actually.

And a 1 gHz processor was weak sauce five years ago.

Uh, gigahertz, right. That's what I said.

Anyway, when my computer comes back, I will have lots of those things.
