Coo, I'm happy with that.
I now have 2.21TB of space.
And, er, 1% used. Ahem.

Yup - those quickly add up. Getting to level 5 is going to take some doing - 500 points.
I note the Local Guides website mentions an Level 4 annual thank you - I can't imagine it will be 1TB free for two years given every year - that would start to mount up really quickly!!

Hmm, CES looks interesting this year...
Ford submitted 6,000 patent applications in 2015, many about autonomous vehicles.

Wow, I expected the flaws and driver issues but not the sales result!
And these aren't cheap machines they cost the same as iPads.
I wonder if it's a one month wonder our sustained sales - only time will tell.
Feels like the sky is falling... MS out selling Apple in the tablet space, whatever next, creating a half decent phone?
Flickering lights, sleeplessness leave Redmond's typoslabs feeling drained

European aid saves lives, but it’s under attack. Tell leaders to stop the cuts now.

The sweet irony of a Microsoft article talking about cloud computing reducing time spent on updates etc.

I'm sure this could be adapted and much better positioned as advocating ChromeOS.

+Cathy B. Yes, my Dad had a WebTV too, and now a Chromebook. He is far from tech savvy as well.

As far as the members at the forum, not to worry, we wouldn't want anyone to "leave" their home there. :) But they should always feel welcome here as well. Most members in the Chromebooks community are very welcoming and we all remember when we got our first Chromebook too. But of course I know, baby steps. :)

It's not every day the Chief Fire Officer of Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service presents me with one of these...

Now if only there was an equivalent for email!

It was fun wasn't it? I'd forgotten I could read simple music. Ode to joy was the only 'real' piece of music I could play on the piano!

Is this what they mean by 'Accessible Toilet'?
An Ethernet and telephone socket within arm's reach of the throne!

Over 6 million working people in the UK still earn below the Living Wage. It’s time to change that once and for all. Join the movement.

The politest experience of home cooking you'll ever come across. Superb meals, hearty portions, endearing surroundings. And staff that can't help but be helpful. Brilliant

Such places should be unnecessary, but thanks to Cameron many are now in poverty. This charity offers a temporary but invaluable respite.

Excellent store, but finding my way around was dizzying. I spent two hours walking round in an endless spiral. Should be simple right? Now try and find where to collect your child from the creche!

Our family group of 30 really enjoyed celebrating my mum's 70th birthday here. Three course meal including a carvery. Pulled pork cheesy nachos, three meat carvery and Eaton Mess. The staff were really helpful with mum's cake. A good pint of Ringway ale. Thank you.

One of the wonders of the waterways. I love this place for a stroll, a think and to switch off for a bit.
