Well, it has been a interesting month.
Working on NaNo.
Having so much fun at work.
Getting hit at work with the 'oh we have new certifications we have to pass and the inspectors with be here next week'
The 'why aren't you getting any Cisco certifications? No ITIL certs?'
"Well, we know we are under-staffed but corporate says we need to reduce staffing. We had to let 4 go."
"We must become more competitive in the marketplace. We need everyone to give 110% all the time. "
Getting my new toy.
I got the EZ Reader Pocket Pro a bit ago.
I really like it for reading books but I also have lots of Manga (printed Anime) that I like.
Also the EZ Reader will read PDF files but sometimes does not get it quite right.
So when I read the article from Popular Science on a DIY Kindle, I first laughed. then I thought of the positives.
Now I have the 'Kindle for PC', the Barnes and Noble eBook software, ComicRack, and calibre loaded on a Fujitsu Stylistic ST4121.
I also loaded Word, yWrite, a few other programs.
Booting the PC before taking a break, reading for a few minutes while eating then writing a bit right on the same platform is easier than going from reader to a PC for writing or using my Fly Fusion pen. I really can't see why tablets have not taken off. Maybe I just got lucky with my choice.
Active digitizer screen on the tablet lets me draw or write directly on the screen and it is digitized. The writing (in cursive) gets digitized and then OCR'ed and bingo you have text in whatever program you're using.
So anyway, I had a lot of info from the Fly Fusion and the tablet that I just dumped on NaNo. real close to the total. Not sure I am going to make it over but....
Maybe I get a life as a christmas present.
