Not long ago, I wrote a post about trying out Joplin. I'd been looking for a good, solid note taking application, and Joplin really seemed to fulfill my needs. There have been some other really interesting things come to light in the last couple weeks that might erase my need for it though.
Today was a pretty normal Wednesday for us here at the Stone house. At least the new normal for us. I was working from home, and my wife was taking a VoIP call from her boss. My kids were scattered through the house engaged in either game play or video watching. All in all, it was a pretty quiet and happy afternoon.
Around forty-five days ago when Kev suggested the #100DaysToOffload, I was hesitant to get involved. I had a blog, and I'd written in the past. I'd even written and not received the virtual “boos” from aroun the Internet like I expected, but there was one thing that I was not sure of.
When the Brave browser was first released four years ago, I gave it a try. It was OK, but not something I'd use on a regular basis. I quickly went back to my old browser. Now, there are other reasons I don't use Brave.
Forty-one days ago, I started the #100DaysToOffload challenge. Kev made the challenge, and I had serious doubts I was going to complete it. I'm not one hundred percent confident now, and I'm forty-one days in. There has been one thing about it that I didn't expect.
My kids have gotten off school for the summer, which means the time they used to spend doing homework they are now spending playing video games and watching videos. They've got summer stuff starting next week, but for now they're gaming it up. They're wanting me to play with them, but sometimes their choices of games leave more than a little to be desired.
My wife was trolling the Internet a few nights ago, and she ran across a list of possible blogging topics. One of the topics on the list was something about your favorite retro device. I don't remember the exact wording, and I kind of wrote it off at the time. I think I was already writing something about #Mycroft, but it reminded me of a device I had a long time ago that I felt (at least then) was way ahead of it's time.
