Whew, that was a whirlwind Spring Break with the family. Ended up skiing five days in a row, rest day yesterday, perhaps a few pow turns later today. Leaving for Europe and Silvretta traverse all too soon, so I’ve been setting up a cool new travel computer.
More below about computers, first, one more photo from the Elk Mountains.
Back to computer issues. I tried blogging from my PDA. That stinks if you want to do much in the way of writing, or process photos so they look at least semi-pro. Instead, WildSnow will attempt blogination on an Acer Aspire One miniature computer. Been configuring the little guy for the last few days and the tiny box of tightly packed electrons seems to be working like a champ. Blogging from the Acer now, along with building as many shortcuts and automations as possible, e.g., why compute when you could be making turns?
