    How Many Domains Does Aaron Garcia Have?

    A quick search in Google suggests a query for how many domains do Google and Amazon have. Not that anyone is searching for how many domains I have, but I’ll tell you anyway.

    2011 Apple MacBook Pro with Defective GPU Runs Manjaro Linux Perfectly

    Kara bought a lightly used 2011 MacBook Pro from my cousin. She got a good year of use out of it before the recalled GPU failed.

    COVID-19 Cases Drop and San Antonio Decreases Risk to Moderate

    The endless talk about COVID-19 pushed me to tune out the news for a bit. For a while, I was reading it every day, but it filled me with worry as I’m sure many others feel. The last time I checked the City of San Antonio’s COVID-19 risk assessment, we were between critical and severe. […]

    There are now 250 Billion websites, 220,000 of these launched within the last 24 hours, as seen here: https://zonefiles.io/. Sure, not all of these domains are useful.
