Not much to say for tonight’s blog post except that I tossed out the box and started peeling off the stickers from the Chromebook, so I guess this means I’m keeping it, hah. Last night I wondered as I was drifting off to sleep what I’d do for writing without a network connection (since I had been using MarsEdit on my Macs and it has an offline editing mode, and everything I had been doing so far with the Chromebook has been with the web interface for my blog, and part of the appeal of a Chromebook is that you do practically everything in a web browser… which is kind of hard to do if you don’t have a network connection). I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to use the WordPress Android app but when it came up in my search today for offline Chrome OS-based editors it was so obvious. I’m still getting used to it. I definitely prefer the web-based interface a lot more.
Spent the day today shopping with the ladyfriend, visiting with extended family for a birthday / Halloween / celebration of life party for a cousin of mine whose birthday was this time of year and who loved Halloween but sadly passed away earlier this year, and then spent the evening tidying up and preparing for the work week.
Apparently this is my 5,500th post. Wish I had something more interesting to say to commemorate the occasion, but I guess that’s what happens when I decide to type up a quick post when I should be sleeping.
