2,000 Posts

This is the 2,000th post I’ve done for this blog.  In less than two years.  The amount of people looking at this blog has increased since I started so I thought that I would share some posts that are cool, but almost nobody else has seen.  This is stuff I posted a long time ago, but that  didn’t get seen or noticed.  Some of these are stuff that I would now put in a tech stuff post.  Some of it is just stuff that never got noticed when I posted it.
