So, I have a new laptop that runs windows 8...and I hate it. I mean...hate it. after years of Linux based everything, I'm screaming at a screen more than I thought myself capable of. Still, I didn't want to use a desktop any longer (the idea of jumbled cables, monitors, towers, etc. cluttering up my new house was too much) so we've converted to a laptop and a tablet. I haven't seen the tablet since we bought it-Danny took off with it to watch Woody Woodpecker cartoons on YouTube. How can you not have a start button?! I mean, what the hell?
We're just under three weeks to the move. I'm at that stage where I'm tossing shit in boxes knowing it will never be unpacked, just hopefully sorted through next time we move-that's how I ended up with all this crap when we moved from Boston. To be fair, we have filled a skip several times, and donated even more, but some things like papers and photographs seem to multiply in my attic. The new place won't have an attic, but there's a full basement (oh dear...).
We're cooking down the freezer which has led to some interesting combinations at mealtime, and I'm attempting to drink my way through all the put up cordials (hic!).
I have a feeling Windows 8 will work better once I start disabling all the stuff I don't use-but who knows. Anyone else experiencing computer rage with it? I never had this many crashes with Linux.
OK, rant over, I have stuff to pack (I have no idea how I still have stuff to pack, but I do).
