The next morning, Austin was tired, irritable, and out of sorts. Not a particular surprise, as he he’d been up until 2 writing the essay…

General question. I'm researching Chromebooks (I'm on a Windows/Linux laptop, after selling my old Samsung Chromebook a couple of years ago), and I'm noticing that most Intel based variants are still running the N series processors.
I've been discounting those, because of their age and lack of performance, compared to the U series. Should I give them any consideration (especially with play store support coming)? Or continue to restrict my criteria to U and I series chips?

I bought the Acer CB3-111 4Gig model for same reason at only $229 to see how it performs once the Android option comes ,But if it doesn't perform well for the price of another Chromebook it really not a great loss,Since I was thinking of getting a Macbook according to my calculations I still have about $1400 left to play with :)

Interesting...
I set now on tap back up on my phone, and there's a new intro layout. Look at what's on the bottom, at the end. "Alt+ j"... I wonder if this is just for compatibility with the pixel c, or if it's a prep for Android apps being able to run on Chromebooks.
I've been holding on to the theory that chromeOS is going to become the OS (maybe rebranded as Google OS), with Android as the app layer. And that seems to be exactly what they are doing for Chromebooks. Things are a'changing

Round one of ultrasonic coil cleaning. I think I put a bit too much water in, though. The sides are vibrating, but the water is still. Hmm... I'm gonna give it half an hour, and see what it looks like. Using straight water, this round

Surprising. I was, originally, going to be put in a best Western, but it was changed to a motel 6 at the last second. I was expecting dirty, dingy, and uncomfortable. When I to my room, there were hardwood floors, the bed was a pillow top that was actually a bit too soft for me, and the bathroom was clean, stocked, and had lovely water pressure. My 2 complaints were the lack of coffee, even in the lobby, when I got up. But, must preface that with saying that did wake late, so the legitimacy of that complaint is debatable. The second, valid one, is house keeping knocking on my door, and then trying to enter at 9 in the morning. I applaud them for trying to get it done. But there is, I'm almost certain, a computerized guest list that will tell you which rooms haven't checked out. Use it, please Beyond that, my stay was excellent

First, the good. The room was relatively clean... Such as it was. The beds are hard as a rock, the baseboards are coming up, the sink is separating from the wall, the outlets are loose (all 3 of them), and the water heater is either inferior, cold, it just plain small. I ran out of hot water about half way through my shower.

Jay was running the shop when I went in. He was very patient, as I tested juices, hooked me up with some fresh cotton (I was testing in my dripper), and when I was making decision, he made a point of mentioning sales that were going on at the moment, to save me a few bucks (I wound up saving somewhere around 25 bucks on 90ml of juice and a tobeco velocity clone) While I was there, he had 3 other customers come in. I watched him do the same thing with them, obviously more interested in making sure they had what would work for them, than making money. His prices are actually very good, as well (the tobeco was 22 bucks). He's apparently got sales going on through Christmas, and monthly stuff as well. The atmosphere is relaxed, and very not pushy. I will say not to buy batteries here. He has efest and "Sony" batteries. Hopefully he'll get some authentic batteries in shortly. When I informed him about them being probable fakes, he promised to do some research on the issue. Oh. And I just got a free shirt. Why not. Free advertising...

The hotel, what I saw of it, was excellent. The linens were fresh, and the bead was fairly comfortable. The hotel was exceptionally clean. Where this place really sparkled was the customer service. Every single person, from Julia on the restaurant (excellent food, by the way) to the legion of housekeepers that seemed to be everywhere, had a smile and a ready greeting. And it wasn't the fake, pasted on, junk you see sometimes. It actually felt like they wanted to be there I'll be back there for my annual event, next year. I'll be curious to see if it's changed. From the other people I've talked to, this is normal

I can only speak to the sushi, meizo and customer service. All of which were excellent. The meizo could've been warmer, but it was still outstanding. The flavors were very vibrant, and the fish was obviously very fresh (less than 5 goes from caught, from what we could tell). The server (Sabrina) was very attentive. When we wanted to take the rest of the sushi back to the hotel (12 rolls for fire 3 people... We had leftovers), she gladly brought out a bag of ice so we could keep it nice and cold. The atmosphere was quiet, and modern woodwork. A subtle blend of traditional Japanese and American.

First time getting around to eating here. Not bad. The food: I had the lunch sirloin with macaroni and cheese, fried okra, and mashed potatoes and gravy. I also had the mountain oysters and strawberry shortcake. The sirloin was prepared well, for what it was. The cut of meat was inferior to what I would expect from a place that prides itself on steaks. Thin, with far too much marbling. That being said, I asked for medium rare, and they cooked it just a touch closer to medium than rare, which is fine. It was still tender. The mountain oysters, while being a bit heavy on the breading for my taste, were fried perfectly. I may come back, just for those. I can tear breading off. The okra was similarly well prepared. Crispy breading, but not burnt. And done enough that the okra itself wasn't slimy. The Mac and cheese... That is the reason I got the third side. To me, it tasted like they made it with Velveeta. The waitress said she thought they might use a 4 cheese blend. But it still tasted like they were using processed cheese Mashed potatoes, however, were excellent. Maybe a bit bland, as far as spices, but salted perfectly. As for the strawberry shortcake, the cake was moist, and the topping wasn't so sweet that it gave me a tooth ache. It was rich enough that I couldn't finish it (evening snack?), but very good Service: Very good. My waitress was Camry. I couldn't get my tea below half way before she was back. My ordering experience was similar. The menu had been placed at the edge of the table for less than a minute, and she was there with her note pad. When I complained about the Mac and cheese, her solution was simple. What would you like instead. No haggling or reticence. Granted, I was placed on the main isle coming out of the kitchen, and that would account for speedy service, but not attitude. Moral of the story: come, eat, enjoy the atmosphere and service. Just be sure to question your server about what's good. I won't throw the entire menu under the bus because of one steak and side. I'll be back. I just won't order that particular dish again.
