Puerto Rico
We are spending a week in Puerto Rico in March. Hopefully, I will be able to get away from the beach and spend some time in the area of our family ancestral home. That is in the western highlands in the area of Utuado. We may make a run to El Yunque rainforest also, but when we were there a few years ago most of it was still closed due to hurricane damage. Do you know anything about dragonflies and damselflies in Puerto Rico?
Any pointers of where to look?

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

You could also transfer everything to solid state drives too. Lightning fast and no spin up or spin down.

Re: My Imaging Computer Died Yesterday
I used to get all excited about MBs, drives , video cards. But since I became a kept man 20 years ago I have bought pre-made. I loved building systems. The last 5-6 I built were for cost for friends. It is amazing how much things have changed in the last 20 years. Now all I have is a MS Surface 7 and that is more than enough.

Re: My Imaging Computer Died Yesterday
My partner in the computer biz blames me for it failing. Once I hooked up with a younger medical student, I lost interest in the business. I guess that was part of it, but his wife spending all of our profits had more to do with it.
