A short blog concerning Readercon (I'm going ) and videos (I've got a couple)

Is Readercon really next week? It feels as if it’s crept up on me; I keep thinking it’s sometime in the nebulous future. I’ve gotten my initial schedule, which right now is made up of two panels, an individual reading and a group reading, but the schedule…

I had very high expectations for the Huawei MateBook -- it had a great look and a comfortable keyboard. But it's not quite up to some of its competitors, and I'm already waiting to see the next version.
Huawei's new 2-in-1 MateBook has an excellent display and a good selection of hardware, but the design of its keyboard cover could use some tweaking.

It's been only a day, but Microsoft has pushed through another update to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update: This one offers minor bug fixes and an Evernote extension for Edge.
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is due this summer -- but if you don’t want to wait, you can install the various builds via Microsoft’s Insider Program. Here is a guide to what each build brings.

Here's my Readercon schedule...

Readercon has posted its “preliminary” schedule; since there are only a few more days to go, I’ve decided to go ahead and post the panels/readings that I’m going to participate in. There are loads of great-sounding panels coming up; I’m really looking…

I'm pretty much addicted to Evernote. Now I may have to pay for it. <g>
Evernote, the popular note-taking app, has raised its prices and limited its free service. Users can bail, or simply shrug and accept it as a cost of doing business.

Very nice folk; if they don't have what you want, they'll order it for you -- and if you're a regular, they'll stock it. And yes, you need to stop and check out their windows; there's always something fun and witty there.
