Seen in #Ottawa yesterday on a walk, #Mallard #ducks. These are "welfare" ducks that refuse to fly south and live on human handouts all #winter.

Me doing a #freesoftware presentation to an audience at the #Ottawa Public Library in Orleans. This was part of the #NationalCapitalFreeNet series, called "Saved with a Click". Photo by @Kathryn Barr who was there, too.

Yesterday @Kathryn Barr and I had a short weather window with nice snow on the ground, decent temperatures and good skiing, at least until the freezing rain and later rain arrived and wrecked it all. So at least #skiing officially started ... and ended.

The #Sens had a great game last night as well, hanging on to defeat the #PittsburghPenguins #Ottawa #Sens #Hockey
 



View from the Huron Lookout in #Gatineau Park today, looking southwest, near #Ottawa. It was hazy with a system rolling in at +5°C. The "white" is a light dusting of #snow as #winter is just about here now.

A nice new set of DVDs for free distribution at #NationalCapitalFreenet in #Ottawa. I have been doing this award-winning program for ten years now and have given away over 3,500 DVDs. It's just my way of contributing to the free software movement.

There are DVDs for:

* Ubuntu
* Xubuntu
* Lubuntu (both the current LTS and also 18.10 with the shiny new LXQt desktop)
* Puppy Linux (for 32 bit users)
* All-In-One System Rescue Toolkit (for #Windows users - we go through a lot of these)
* Best of Free Windows Software

Plus cards about the same, for people who no longer have optical drives.

* More info on the Linux distros.

#Sign seen in #Ottawa. I should note this is an area where #dogs have been attacked by #coyotes, but only when let off-leash. I should also note that dogs are not allowed off-leash in this area and there are lots of signs to remind people of that. Dog owners want something done about the "coyote problem". The coyotes live here, it is their home,as the NCC signs now note. I want something done abut the off-leash dog problem, but then the coyptes seem to have that one under control.

I think this season, Ottawa might surprise a few. Yes they lost Karlsson and Hoffman-who I hated seeing leave- but no matter how many leave #Ottawa, they still manage to come through. #Ottawa #Hockey #Canada

We are in the "in-between time" here in #Ottawa. Our #sailboat is still in the water for a few more weeks, but today @Kathryn Barr and I walked up to the local arena and went #ice #skating, so #winter isn't that far away.

A #sign seen in #Ottawa today at a #SalvationArmy #Church. I have a bunch of problems with this sign. My main philosophical problem is that it describes a god who is not omnipresent and therefore is clearly not the god of Christianity, who is usually understood as being omnipresent.

Of course if you accept that the Christian god is actually omnipresent, then clearly you don't have to go to any church, as he is everywhere, including where you are now.

One of the features of #autumn in #Ottawa is that all the fields are full of these tiny purple Astir# flowers.

@Kathryn Barr sailing #Vesper on the #Ottawa River. I took this photo because Kathryn gets a particular smile on her face at 5.3 knots and 11° of heel on the boat. She loves sailing fast.

An unknown type of sailboat yesterday on the #Ottawa River. He was creating quite a bow wave in all the wind we had.

A #Nash 26 sailboat yesterday in #Ottawa. The light was amazing: dark clouds overhead and then a slanted sunbeam.

This old #sculpture from 1982 was recently installed in a park in #Ottawa. Made by Chung Hung in British Columbia, it had been stored for a number of years. It is supposed to be a wooden mobius strip, but it looks a lot like a swastika to me.
