Dealing with isolation is a royal bitch. I know about that and
depression. Linux people are great, especially when they encounter
another who is isolated, we're geeks and can spend too much keyboard
time and forget how to relate to others. That's why I like user groups
and Lugs. While it may be a room full of geeks, at least you're not
alone and with people of like interests! I hope you have some strong
deadbolts though. Ric
