Peppermint Linux and NaNoWriMo

I have heard a lot of great things about Peppermint Linux.  I wanted to give it a try, so I put it on one of my old Win laptops.  I really like it! It's fast and it works well.  I did that last night and played with it after installing it.  I'm tempted to install it on my 'newest' Win laptops.  I only use it to make bootable disks for my Linux computers, so... I don't like Windows and I don't really use it for anything.  I might just put Peppermint on it.  I tried to put it on the smallest and oldest of my Win laptops, but it wouldn't recognize the usb flash drive.  Then, when I went to try again last night, that particular laptop wouldn't boot.  Boo!  It might now have worked in any case.  It works fine on this other laptop I had.  I really like Linux and I'm loving Peppermint.  I've always used Linux Mint in the past.  This is as good as that but better.  I really like it.

As for NaNoWriMo, I am now over 25,000 words!  I reached that today.  So glad to make it to 25,000!  I am not over halfway there!  My character is still out and on her own, but she has found a friend in a black cat she named Kiki. :)

Monday again....

Yes, here it is Monday again.  I am going to have a normal post tonight.  Last night, time got away from me so I was only able to make a quick picture post of the puzzle.  I didn't get a lot on it done to start last night, but I started it.  I didn't finish it today either.  I could have as I was pretty close to finishing, but I stopped to get some other things done.

I saw an article online to convert an old laptop into a Chromebook.  I have an old IBM laptop that I thought would be perfect for this. It's really old so I'm currently running Linux on it.  I tried the Chrome conversion, but I guess it is really too old.  Oh well. I did play with Mint on it though.  I know that Evernote is making a Linux version of their software.  Until then, there were a third party app called Whatever.  I downloaded it and was able to log into Evernote on there with no problems.  Pretty cool!  I even created a note in there just to make sure it synced and it did!  Very nifty.  


As you can see, I got a lot of the puzzle done today.  I'll finish it up tomorrow.  It's pretty fun.

How I am using Evernote today:  I am using it on a laptop running Linux Mint via an app called Whatever.  Very cool all around. :)
