So, my Chromebook died. RIP. My cat pissed on it!

Definitely gonna get another one. They are just so wicked. Gonna take the Intel option next time though. Donut get me wrong ARM is all well and good, but it just made everything so much more difficult cos nothing ever works even when you install apps. I think I shall go for the Acer one by the looks of things. Hey, the latest version of Chrome OS can run Android apps!!!!! Wahay! ;) 8) %)

Oh, they do everything these day. Everything just has to have Intel Inside!!!! It's like me, whatever I get, I just have to put Linux on it, although I'm an AMD guy myself usually / mostly; always have been. I think they are better. Run hotter mind and use more electricity I think but faster than Intel. Haven't ran Intel since my first ever PC which I got for Xmas '94 when I was a 3rd year student at University studying IT, doing my year out working in industry with my student loan. The Intel Pentium had just come out, but it had bugs, so I got an 80486 DX2/66, a passport and went to the USA XMas 'Eve '94. I was supposed to stay for 32 days, but I didn't come Bach until my birthday, that year, o1.o3.96; I'm a Leap Year Baby. Always have been, always will be I guess. ie I stayed for 1 year and 3 month. Ended up answering the telephones and fixing the computers @PIXAR in fashionable Emeryville in California, USA, I used to Live in Warfield, in Oakland, CA. USA................
