Four


Dadguy's work has provided him with a very swell Ti-book. It has played a key role in my blogging habit for the past year or so. While he plays "Wars of Guildcraft World" on our home computer, I kick it on the bed a few feet away and surf teh internets. I don't actually write many posts using the laptop, cuz when I do I still have to do the actual publishing from our computer. For some reason gmail (which I compose in [hello, auto-save feature,spellcheck etc!]) has no editing options like spell check, italics, links, boldface etc. when accessed through his laptop.... Blogger either.

Not that I have EVER gotten Blogger's spell check function to work.

We have tried going through a number of different browsers, no luck... Dadguy says it's probably some obscure setting and the he could probably fix it. Not that it matters now.

It is time for Dadguy's work to upgrade, and this time he gets a new desktop style. His choice. He said he's going for faster/bigger/better. Whatever. I can recognise an attempt to curtail my addiction, and that's exactly what this IS! And in the middle of my Blop(NaBloPoMo) attempt too. BAH!

Speaking of Blop.... please to notice my spiffy new Blop badge on the right, courtesy of lectico.ca. It was love at first geek when I clapped eyes on it, whilst surfing the NaBloPoMo randomizer last night (on Dadguy's work laptop).

Make your time!

Well, don't lose hope yet. The owner of the company has decreed that the new machines that we were getting are now on hold until we are done testing version 2.6 of our product. So it'll probably be Christmastime or so before we get the new machines.

As for all that extra stuff on gmail? That's activeX stuff, which is not available on a mac. Too bad.

I wondered where you got that seal. It's VERY awesome. I may have to follow suit...

Maybe if you are really, really good you can have a laptop for christmas? and if that works, can you let me know what you did - cause I'd love me a new laptop!

Switch to Blogger Beta, it's spellcheck WORKS. Or use Firefox 2.0, it has built in spellchecking which is very handy on comments!

(Macs suck.)

MMmmm. Laptops. I have a crush on them though we've never had one. I love the idea of sitting in bed writing. Delicious. Yeah, I'm a freak. That's why you love me...

I WANT ONE! The logo, that is.

yeah, my beloved surfs with a laptop. The problem with a laptop is that you can work anywhere.

So he does.

He works ANYWHERE.

Sometimes, this is a problem.
