I’m finally sitting in a Starbucks on my laptop and doing some writing. Welcome to 2010. Yeah, I’m running a bit behind. I had to fight my way through a line non-existent Holiday-cup protesters. Did anyone other than headline writers really care about that?
What Have I learned already? I’m suffering from trackball withdrawal. I miss a second big monitor, but I’ll live. The wifi here is crazy fast. 55mbps down, 10mbps up! The food and drinks are not as expensive as I was thinking. There are reasonably priced drinks and food on the menu, just don’t go straight for the premium items if you’re going to be hanging out a while. I think it’s good etiquette to buy something occasionally. I think they might frown on bringing a sack lunch.
I trying to learn to live without my Logitech Trackman Marble Trackball. This is not a random recommendation. After I upgraded my computers away from being able to use my U series Wacom tablet(circa 1997) my trackball is the oldest working piece of hardware I’m currently using. I’ll note that it doesn’t look like Logitech has updated that trackball. There is a good reason for that.. I think it’s perfect as it is. I think I should by couple and put them away just in case something happens to the one I have. This is what one looks like after about 10 years. Yes, I wore off the finish!
