The pros and cons of different operating systems (from Holly’s experience)
Pros: User-friendly interface, maximum software compatibility (esp. games), supports Office (Word, Excel, etc.) and Adobe products.
Cons: Expensive, unstable, SLOW, Windows 8 (yes, I’ve tried it and hated it), forces restart to update, targeted by viruses, bad coding,
Mac OS X
Pros: Fast, pretty-looking, fun interface, next in line with user-friendliness, not as expensive as windows (unless you buy a computer with.
Cons: Hardware/software exclusivity, limited software options.
Pros: Everything is customizable (you can even hack your Wacom tablet to do what you want it to), maximum hardware compatibility, can view computer processes in terminal, FREE, open-source, portable (can run it from a hard-drive, runs OpenOffice/LibreOffice, a LOT of free, open-source software to download.
Cons: Non-native software incompatibility (a lot of the time, Wine just isn’t good enough; not a gaming OS…yet. /Valve), wireless internet incompatibility (dependent on the model of adapter), not user-friendly to people coming over from Windows/Mac (Mint is apparently the most user-friendly).
I doodled on the back of an assignment I had to turn in today.
Took a picture with the iPad before turning it in, so now it’s in the process of becoming a vector!
Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.
Northwest Native American poem (translated by David Waggoner)
Going to Mercer Island for the weekend to spend time with family
Will be back either tomorrow or Monday. Not sure. We shall see.

Thank you for your well wishes...ordeal is probably a good way to describe it. And thank you again for the free reading and being so patient about the feedback. Trying to keep myself centered and deal with all the things going on in my life right now means things get away from me sometimes.
You’re welcome! Glad I could help! :)
I think what that last anon was trying to point out was the volume of self centerdness and selfishness your posts - especially your rants - tend to give off. Its just as fine for you to complain as it is for others to also complain, even if they're complaining about you. Personally, I can see both sides of the coin here. But that's just me.
And I have just as right to complain right back at them if I disagree with their complaint, according to your argument.
So…what’s your point?
That I’m not allowed to post my thoughts on my blog? That on a blog, about myself and my life, I can’t have posts that are centered on myself? Where I post rants that are merely meant to vent so I can get on with my day?
Isn’t that kind of the point of a personal blog?
Sweet zombie Jebus, you people are sensitive! Why does my inane bitching, which more than likely has nothing to do with you, cause you so much unrest? I have a bad day, and I deal with it, and I move on.
You can’t argue that you have never had a shitty day and wanted to write about it to get it off your chest!
