Heather has taken my laptop, ostensibly for video editing, but now for spreadsheets. Here’s where I notice the limitations of the Chromebook. All I want to do is FTP and emacs (there are Mysteries as yet unresolved on a couple of servers). And what do I get? Facebook. Slow-loading news sites (not the Chromebook’s fault – the hotel wifi sucks this morning). BORED.
Oh and the entire Internet is boring today because, aside from a few cleverly done stories (“Setting the Clocks Back at Avebury”), most of the April Fool’s stuff is crap. GRUMP!
You don’t want to learn Klingon from Rosetta Stone? You love languages.
I do *not* want to see the pictures that they use for that language.
I can see it becoming like Lee Valley’s blank tape measure: a joke that became real by popular demand.
Most of the April Fools stuff is _always_ crap.
FTP access not possible on chromeOS? Interesting.
FTP access too much of a pain in the arse on ChromeOS. Plus all the relevant files are on my MacBook.
Download the SP Chromebook app 🙂
