Another one for the MacStack in the dungeon

Yeah, the new one is on the left. The one on the right will be relegated to the Landfill Dungeon, where it will join the MacStack. It is a 2013 model and I am NOT going to give it to a relative, let alone SELL IT! WHAT! Nope, you need a new one. I’ve been through the usual email password hell and some long thing with Photos and I seem to be pretty good to go now. I am mourning the death of my ancient student-obtained photoshop app but I *will* move forward. I can deal with this but I will have to craft a new photo processing routine.

It’s kinda weird that these days I ALMOST don’t need a laptop. I mean I use my iPhone for almost everything I do on the internet. Except when I have enough to say that I need a REAL keyboard to touch type long email messages or blahg posts or whatever. I do use a Dell laptop for work and do plenty of touch typing on that thing. Looks like I’ve lost Word and Excel too. I do use those apps for some things. I’ll try to figger it out this weekend. I will buy those if I need to. I don’t think I’ll buy PhotoShop.

Mini book blahg? The Firebrand (Marion Zimmer Bradley). Re-telling of the Iliad from Cassandra’s point of view. Read it as a youngster and loved it then and now. Book hangover on this one. Once Upon a River. Michigan girl making choices I wouldn’t have made but she also didn’t have the family resources I had. A couple Lisa Jewell books that got me through a few weird days. Then Fireweed (Mildred Walker) arrived via paperback. Young couple in the yooperland in the depression era. And finally, Valentine, which is a wonderful page-turner and I’m not done with it.

    I think Adobe products are pretty much all subscription based now! Probably between $20-30/month. Might not be worth it if you just need basic photo editing for a few things… honestly Preview might do the trick (or something open source).

    Need to catch up with moom-reads…

    “Valentine” was such a well-written book and elicited a great discussion in Book Club. New laptops are exciting but also a PITA. I use my laptop for most things because I’m no good with the virtual keyboard of my cell phone. 🙂
