    Yo ILB, what did you replace the OS on your Chromebook with? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    random bacon: Yo ILB, what did you replace the OS on your Chromebook with? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    I didn't replace it, I put a linux toolset on it that gives more flexibility in use. The package I put on is called crouton.

    The first thing you need to do is get it into developer mode. Unfortunately, when you switch to developer mode, it erases local storage, so anything there is lost.

    Bookmarked, gracias. Does doing that make it windoze network compatible? Right now it's basically blank anyway, but it needs to be able to access my home network. So I'm looking at options.

    Your home network runs TCP/IP. It'll play on that, just fine. It does need a wireless access point -- that's how it talks to the outside world. (WiFi)

    But it may not play nice with the windows machines without putting more software on it (accessing shared disks, your printer, and so on).

    That's fine, I can work with that. I put Mint on an older(ish) netbook and that seems to work just fine.

    There's construction work going on at the library which is generally annoying, but I did find one good thing about it. I can fart with impunity because of all the drilling and power tools going on and nobody can tell it was me except by the smell and the fact that I'm laughing.

    Yes! I'm already seeing more definition in my legs, but more importantly, they feel stronger. I alternate doing missions and 5k training. I'm on mission 14, week 2, day 2 of 5k training.

    With the 5k training, for the first week you walk for 10min, then walk for a minute, and run for 15 seconds 10 times, then 10 minutes of free run where you can run or walk, depending on how you feel. The second week is the same except you walk for a minute then run for 30 seconds.

    I'm on the second week, and when I started by the time I got to free run and could only walk, I was beat. But now I'm able to run for at least half of the 10 minutes.

    I'm training to run in the Zombie Fright Run 5K in October. Can't wait!

    Funny thing, I'd never even thought about running before I found the app, I thought I'd hate it, but I don't.

    It's a very comfy 71F at the moment, comfortable humidity level. I went for a jog earlier this evening and did a little muscle workout afterward. Funny though, the workouts had nothing to do with the concerns of commentors on bN; alpha, beta or gamma.

    eddyatwork: You're a good person for doing this.

    Or an idiot. :-)

    When the cat dropped her on the floor of the kitchen, I thought she was a goner. She was so tiny and helpless, she weighed maybe 3 grams and was about the size of a quarter, and her eyes hadn't opened yet. I thought all I could do was keep her comfortable until she died.



    I did some research on the internet, and called the local nature center, and both said that she would most likely die. Hand raised mice seldom live very long. From what I could tell, she was around a week old.

    I thought it was a lost cause, but I felt like since I saved her from the cat, I was obligated to try to help her.

    She needed to be fed formula from a syringe every 2 hours, and couldn't urinate or defecate unless I massaged her tummy and genitals with a wet q tip. And I needed to keep her at about 80 degrees all the time.

    I figured she'd be dead by Monday morning no matter what I did (I got her on Sunday afternoon), but I felt obligated to try my best.

    So I was pretty amazed when she made it though the night. I set my alarm, and woke up every 2 hours to feed her and make her go to the bathroom.

    She must have been stunned when I found her. By second day however, she started moving more, and started to vocalize. I took her to work with me so I could stick to the feeding schedule. My students love her.

    Today, for the first time she managed to stand up and walk. Her appetite has improved, and she's cleaning herself, and is started to pee and poop without help. And she seems to like being petted.



    She should open her eyes any day now. Once she does I can start her on solid food, and she'll be able to eat by herself. And then I can finally get a full nights sleep! :-)

    I'd like to think I'm not doing anything any decent person would do. And I figure I'm boosting my karma.

    And just seeing my little nephew holding her and petting her has been wonderful. He's so gentle with animals. If she ends up going to live with my brother and his family she'll end up spoiled rotten!

    Spongegirl and I are playing Zombies, Run!. And I'm also using a 5k training app from the same people.

    It's a lot of fun, and I'm getting a ton of exercise. I no longer miss the gym. And it was just what I needed to get past the wall I'd hit a few years ago. I'd gone from 220 or so to around 180, and just couldn't seem to lose any more weight.

    I guess I just needed to change my routine. It's taken years, but the weight is staying off.

    spongegirl circleskirt: This made me laughed until I cried. :)

    Sometimes I make those up for comedic effect, but that was literally true. I remembered an earlier accident you had with a phone (perhaps apocryphally).

    Oh yes. The toilet phone drop. I remember. I still have the phone.

    I have trouble letting go of electronics.

    abbynormal: Who thought they had anything to do with you exercising? I may be resembling it wrong, but I seem to recall you've always been pretty active.

    Remember when we used to have scheduled fitness threads? I was thinking about reviving that.


    Do it! This running thing is a big deal to me since I never enjoyed it before. I'd like to see what more experienced runners have to say. BTW, I miss FFG's running posts.
