I've never been able to cast an .avi from Google Drive on chromebook to my TV. I recall hearing it is possible. Is it?

Yes, working on 1st gen Samsung chromebook. Also many others. Only problem is the UI is funny/mobile format. some apps, games and video players, change the screen orientation too... There's a ton of video tuts on this

Well not bubbleupnp specifically. But, if interested it wouldn't take much time and effort to find out if your favorite app works. Basically if you can run ever note you can run any android app via this method.

this android runtime trick can be used to install any android app as a one time extension whereby it'll install the app whether it works as intended or not. Simple apps, the two video players I've actually tried - mx player and bubbleupnp work. I'm sure others would works too as I've seen them on many different video tuts

If you just want one app to use on Chromebook to send videos natively to Chromecast, it's worth trying. The arm based cpu on my xe303c12 Samsung v1 Chromebook is not the best. But it works with the android runtime trick, and I'm sure this will work on all chrome books

Great, I could understand your left hand, but I have no idea how what I saw your right hand doing related to the sound I heard. A mystery.

Shucks, I have a Nitto F-15 front bag rack. To mount it I am going to have to cut my hemp twine handlebar wrap, to redirect the brake cables to make some room for the clamps. Boo.

Rapid paced political banter. It was really fun though I always struggle with rapid fire British comedic banter. (the original The Office, for instance). The plot is trans-Atlantic US/British diplomacy and it made it more interesting.  I'm a big Gina McKee fan, it was great to see her in a funny supporting role.

More good reads. Amazon makes it easier to read books and I consider listening to an unabridged audio book reading.

Reweaving Studio is reputed to be the absolute best in the business. This was my first time using their services. I had a huge hanging snag in a wool knit sweater. Being the neanderthal that I am my first instinct was to snip it and burn the ends.....nope. A local yarn store recommended Reweaving Studio. I took three weeks....however they were closed for two of those weeks for winter holiday...and was reasonably priced. I'm unable to detect where the snag was. I remember the general location, but I just can't find the exact spot. Their work was perfect. It is restored to original condition. Thank you.

I have a real soft spot for the Kona Club, it is not the greatest bar in the world, I skew higher the average age whenever I walk in, but I almost always have a good time and good drinks. It is my go to spot for relaxed cocktails.

Super surly staff, good music, free wi-fi, nice big noisy space with cute people, above average cup of coffee. On my patent pending 17 point coffee house scale I am giving it a 14. Nice place.
