After all the drinks were gone, they needed more.
So they discuss who's going to go get the drinks.
The turtle says, "I will go. You both just wait here."
Two hours later, the turtle wasn't back yet, so the centipede says, "I will go."
So they open the door and see the turtle is still walking out of the door.
Because turtles walk too slow the centipede says, "You both wait for me to come back, I've got a lot of legs, so I can walk fast."
The snake and the turtle wait for another two hours.
Finally the snake says, "What is taking the centipede so long?"
So they open the door and check, the centipede is still at the front of the door trying to put on all his shoes.
Finally the snake says, "Let me go. I can walk fast, and I don't have feet to put shoes on."
So the snake leaves.
After three hours, the snake wasn't back yet.
Both of them went to the store to find the snake.
And they saw snake standing there.
The snake says, "Don't give me those dirty looks. It only took me five minutes to get to the store, but I am still figuring out how to bring the drinks back!'"
When we moved late last Fall we finally cut the cable cord and went all in with the Chromecast, something we don't regret at all (we just need to buy an antenna for local stations). Earlier this year we gave up our tried and true but too expensive Verizon service (and unlimited data!) after some 10-11 years and went with Republic Wireless, which although not perfect has so far been well worth the monthly cost savings.
Most recently (this week), the family desktop machine had gotten too old and sluggish to deal with over the last five years. Because it was a Mac and didn't have Office installed, my wife and kids are now well used to using Google Docs and Drive, and I never installed much by way of third party apps. So it made a lot of sense for us to replace it with a Toshiba Chromebook 2.
Thus far I think the Chromebook experience is going fine. Its portability will be quite handy at times. I also went ahead and used Crouton to install Xubuntu, which is my first experience with Linux ever, so that'll be a good learning experience! Its speed, even with three or four profiles signed in, is much better than what we were used to, even if not exactly blazing fast. Still have to work with my printer to determine if I can get Cloud Print functioning.
Overall, enjoying the shake up.
