One day a snake, a turtle, and a centipede were having a party.

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!'"

My household's tech shakeup continues!

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.

I was hoping the new Google Photos app would improve Chromecast support. Instead, they removed casting altogether. Mmk.

OK, folks. My family needs a new computer, and I want it to be a Chromebook/box/bit/base/something. I don't want to pay much more than $350. Should I wait on something that isn't out yet or is there a clear best option already available?

I just bought a Toshiba 100GB chromebook on Amazon for $229.  It is a laptop and quite lightweight.  I'm sure I don't use it as much as your family would.  Of course it is all internet based.  Scott thought it had good reviews.  I would check on that.  Scott has a different brand, but I don't remember what it is.  All word programs would be in google docs, which I know very little about yet.

They already offer unlimited free two-day shipping for $99 yearly and some of the lowest prices around.

How does Amazon make any money?!

Every once in a while, an idea comes along that changes the way we all look at ourselves forever. Before Descartes, nobody knew they were thinking. They all believed they were just mulling. Until Karl Marx, everyone totally hated one another but nobody knew quite why. And before Freud, nobody...

Introduction
I'm a jack of few trades, master of none.

I win the bread as a supervisor for a team collecting data that is fed into our software tool, which predicts and helps mitigate the problem of electronic and electrical components going obsolete. Got that?

I'm currently detoxing from more than a decade of postgraduate work (historical linguistics at the University of Georgia). I'm glad to now be able to pursue my many interests in several unrelated subjects -- not to mention my family (which will always trump all).

I'm also a recovering musician.

To give you an idea of some of my interests, here are a few of my circles:
  • tech (especially Google/Android)
  • science (archaeology, paleontology, anthropology, linguistics)
  • theology
  • music
  • sci-fi TV (among my favorite shows: The X-Files, Babylon 5, LOST, Farscape, Doctor Who...)
Bragging rights
I can do several Muppet voices. Yes, maybe even better than you.

My wife and I have a new favorite Asian restaurant. The red curry she had and the Pad Thai I had were the best of each we remember eating. Excellent noodles! Nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive service.

This castle, probably best known as the Krak de Chevaliers (Castle of the Crusaders), was a highlight of my trip through Syria. Its condition is absolutely remarkable and the surrounding lookout impressive. Highly recommended.

Such a pleasant place to hang out. They have breakfast food, lunch sandwiches, and pastries (from Wilson's) in addition to java. I tried a mocha latte, which had excellent flavor. The upper floor has tables, side rooms, and a selection of popular used books on sale (from Gottwals across the street). It's a great place to study. It's also set up for live coffee-house-style performances (with sound equipment and even a guitar ("for experienced guitar players only"). The decor was tasteful and attractive throughout. I especially liked the old photographs of downtown Perry.

Pretty sure this is the best Pad Thai I've ever had--certainly the best I've had in Athens. The lunch portion is quite generous. My waitress was friendly and attentive. I'll certainly be back.
