For this edition, I am posting it a day early. Depending on how traffic goes, Thursday may be the new day for this newsletter. Since we are still new, expect some changes like this until things work out. If you are a supporter, don’t forget about the Patreon edition, which has even more news.
Fall is in full force here in Indiana. The leaves are changing, Halloween is approaching, and computer geeks are starting to spend even more time indoors.

This newsletter is sponsored by Fiber Data Internet Exchange and Atheral.
