schestowitz"I guess that depends on the quality of the screen. I find it very comfortable to write on my screen, both handwriting and typing on a virtual keyboard. I mainly use it when I'm in tablet mode anyway, e.g. when drawing. " 23 14:46

schestowitzToday I did 1 hours of row pulls on the machine, maxed up stack... the weight so high that it's not the muscles that hurt but the fingers and the skin... and for the first time I can recall it even gave me a blister, so I had to stop. Did write 9 short articles between sets :-)Nov 23 17:48

TechrightsSocial@fcassia: @schestowitz I´m mentioning "fog computing" evrwhere I can, but it´s still not mainstream. Let´s do some some TW until we see it on CNet ;)Nov 23 17:49
schestowitzGood idea. I am still using this term when the opportunity comes up. I made "Vista 7" quite common (started in 2008).Nov 23 17:50

schestowitzHow to tell a guy has been bored? A: he cleans the kitchen.Nov 23 21:14
schestowitz[me]Nov 23 21:14
schestowitzIt's Thanksgiving weekend in the US, so it seems as though many colleagues and writers are now taking a vacation, which means decreased workload and increased boredeom in general :-)Nov 23 21:15
schestowitzYeah, I could use some company... I reckon tomorrow I'll find something to pass the time with. I finished a client's project today and went on with another thing at work... but still, I'm not quire required to, so it's a stretch.Nov 23 21:18
schestowitzI'm in control of that in general. What I mean is, if I want to do more (and let's say get paid more), then I just schedule for that, but now with the US holiday and with me taking the rest of the month off one job, there is a lot of free time, enough to ensure I can get some fun things done, prepare for rowingm, swim, use the sauna (did so today), etc.Nov 23 21:20
schestowitzSome peopleleft early for the holidayNov 23 21:20
schestowitzNews sites are just dead todayNov 23 21:20
schestowitzI got bored and finished today... but my colleague messed up by registering the domain like a newbie... didn't know how to tell him that politely.Nov 23 21:28

schestowitzI don't understand why a simple pkg(wm) that can be replaced by any of your choice turns down so many people...Nov 23 21:39
schestowitzNa, its OK. No more sucky than Gnome3. Yup its dumbed down like G3. To be honest I don't really like any of the new Linux Desktops really. Anything you need to fiddle with a text file to get working is a real PITA, KDE is way too faffy and heavy, XFCE I could never get on with and Enlightenment still isn't there yet (and is just as faffy as KDE). LXDE is OK, but just too light. Gnome 2 was (and still is) the best for a screen Nov 23 21:40
schestowitzand mouse (IMHO of course) Nov 23 21:40

schestowitzI got trolled by Brandon today (again)... wanna see it?Nov 23 21:41
schestowitz100+ messages in a day... I haven't read more than 5... got bored... but it amused me... cause people whom I made moderators banned a fake himNov 23 21:41

MinceRthe choice of default DE/WM does affect the distroNov 23 22:34
MinceRfor example, when it's gnome, it tends to bring mono with itselfNov 23 22:35
