Read a post in No More Pencils, about a theme named Editor that I’d missed, so I went ahead and applied it. It’s not bad. They do have another theme, named Apostrophe, where you can do front-end editing in the way of marking posts as ‘featured’.
The major news in my life, though, is that I have a new computer. It’s red and black, it has Windows8 on it, and I’ve named it Esther.
It’s a long story why I went back to Windows. I had options; I could either have waited until the Mac broke down entirely, I could have made the trip up to Fredericton to that Apple authorized store … I did neither. It’s a long story.
As I mentioned in some older post here, my husband’s computer had a fatal crash so he bought a new one [this one]. He couldn’t stand the keyboard, which is black with red letters on it. I can totally relate, now that I’m sitting here in full daylight, it’s very hard to make out the letters on the keys. I don’t type the same way as he does, though … as long as I’ve place my fingers in the right place from start, I’m good to go. Besides, it has backlit keyboard, but that we didn’t find out until yesterday LOL!
Either way, he wasn’t interested in the touchscreen either, so we got another one for him, and I took over this one. It has double the amount of RAM my other computer had so it feels like I’m flying here, now that we have fibre optics.
I’ve been a Windows user for all my life, except for these two, last, years, but I tell you … it certainly wasn’t like “coming home”. It’s a whole different world. There seems to be two versions of Internet Explorer, for example. I won’t go into the dreary details of it all. I’ll just wait for Windows10, the last of July.
My morning routine was changed today. Normally I start my day by writing a little entry in DayOne, but now that lives only on my phone — there’s no DayOne for Windows.
I’ll be fine with this …
