Johnny jump around!

I so want to use Linux for my everyday use. It does 95% of everything I need. But there is that 5%.

There is also the fact I distro hop like it’s going out of style. I can’t stay with any one distro for more than a few days. For multiple reasons..

As you see I’m quite distraught. Then there is the fact my work uses Windows. God bless their hearts, but they never dish out good hardware, so I end up using my personal laptop for work. If anyone hasn’t told you, running Labtech from a VM is a pain. Connectwise is a dog also.

So what does a guy do? I end up putting Windows back as my main OS. On the bright side, ParrotOS runs smooth as can be in a VM.

So, next week I will probably be writing a new post about how I dropped windows and installed 4 new Linux distros in a day.. oh well.

Cheers!

Moved to Blot!

This is all new to me, but I needed to put my blog somewhere. I actually really love ghost.org but the pro version was a little pricey and to be honest I don’t have the time to manage a server myself either.

So blot.im is my newest discovery, well not discovery but I heard about it. It basically lets me use my dropbox as my server. All posts are in a folder there, then blot.im somehow magically turns it into a blog. Genius!

So this will be my home for now and we will see how it goes. So far I am liking it. But then again this is a first post. We’ll see how it goes.
