In a rut “internet wise”

So the other day I added folders in my bookmarks bar of my browser to add some new space and it got me thinking about how I do things on the internet. The way it was set up my hand would go to the same spaces every day and I was thinking these sites are not all the internet is. I was so surprised just moving things around skewed up my hands and where it moves the mouse.

This got me to thinking I have been using the web links for email for years when I have Outlook the program in the computer ( side note I miss outlook express ) removing the links to the 3 email accounts would make some space in the bookmarks bar. So all of this is making me think about how I’m doing things on the computer, maybe it’s a geek thing but just making these changes might be a good thing for everyone to try.

I set up Outlook and downloaded Thunderbird for email accounts and forgot how involved it is to set the programs up the way you want to, Years ago it was just second nature, it was a nice workout for the brain.

First time using a Chromebook

So sold a old laptop and tablet to get a Chromebook just to see what it’s like. I charged it out of the box and it didn’t need another charge for 3 days . I still had about 60% of a charge and you know how you are with a new toy playing with it for hours so it has that for it . I didn’t get one with a touch screen so it’s lite and very easy to travel with ( its only been to the bar so far ).

Since I have started this I have tested teathering it to my phone and charged it 2 more time’s in 3 weeks . And everything is working great ,but this is a nice little travel computer .

It was a little strange looking at the O/S for the first time , I thought it would be more like the phone O/S ( android ) and it was not. It updates like the phone would via the Play Store. It’s not a bad interface it just takes some getting use to,everything you need its at your finger tips via the store. I use a lot of Microsoft service so I loaded te mail app and “word” to see what kind of interface they had , the Outlook mail loooked alot like the “mail” program built into Windows 10. The Gmail link put in the task bar was just a link to launch the browser to go to gmail’s web interface, since I got this it has updated to a app interface just like Outlook, very basic.

As I use it more I find myself wanting to use it more so I guess thats a good thing.

Update as of today ( at the bar again ) they did something to the wifi and I can’t get into the router to find out what ( had it unlocked for 6 years ) and the Chromebook connected with no problem . Iphones in the bar are getting a error.

Since then the wifi at bully’s has said when everything trys to connect.
