Actually I just got a new job, it only took me 20 years. Most jobs have strict start stop times to allow overlap with the other shifts. Mine is strict except on the weekend, but a 2 minute commute makes up for it. Most stores have shifts that change a lot but I couldn't sell you as $100 bill for 50 dollars.

I would love to see the opposite, there is way too much daylight in the summer, but very little night sky for someone trapped in first shift like I. In the winter it would be nice to have at least an hour of sunlight when you get home for snowblowing.

In the summer it would be nice to have some dark before bed. I have been forced to sleep a few hours after work so I can get some time in the dark each day.

I presently run Ubuntu server for my home server becouse it was quick to build a headless system with no GUI. It seems the new Ubuntu server has a GUI now and is bult for being a cloud base. Now it looks like I will have to find a new distro in 3 years.

I left Ubuntu on the desktop years ago becouse it became unusable. I went to Debian sid and let it upgrade to systemd, and so far it makes boots longer and kills the network most of the time.

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.

Working...
