Off for two weeks. The little Acer seems to be working now, albeit at a snail’s pace, and will do for typing. I can access this blog and most email accounts with it, that’s good enough. As long as I can get an internet connection. Farcebok can wait. I might try to get in while away but don’t really care if I can’t.
When I get back and later, when the new battery arrives, I will try to upgrade this old toy to Linux and see if I can make it actually useful. For trips away, it’s so much lighter than the laptop.
And I have to get a new desktop computer. The rattling fans in the old ones are driving me nuts, and I have not yet fixed the broken one. Fortunately these don’t look expensive, especially as I already have DVD-RW drives etc.so don’t need new ones.
But that is after-holiday stuff. I have the part-written Panoptica stored to take away and have a better idea of where it should go now, and why the idiot drone does what he does. There are fewer blocks than there were.
Two weeks. Can I finish it? I’m going to give it a go.
If I am off the internet it’ll go faster.
