I need a MacBook

Well, the basic inline JavaScript and even the advanced inline JavaScript was a breeze, especially compared to Bootstrap and CSS.  Now we are working on the DOM.  And PCs have a distinct disadvantage when working with Chrome Developer Tools, they aren’t just a menu click away like they are on a Mac.  So I might be moving over to our Mac to do this next session.  Seriously, I can’t reliably get Chrome to cooperate.  The DOM is all about manipulating stuff in your website.  She shows us all of it and then says its bad practice to use it.  Harrumph, if its bad practice, don’t teach us it.  But she did and I am trying my best to understand it.  It’s all JavaScript, and the in the website stuff was easy, this manipulating stuff via an outside program just isn’t clicking anymore.  Part is cuz of alien hardware.  This is definitely supposed to be done on a Mac and here I am crippled on a PC and PC Laptop.  Oh well, I can always buy a book on DOM and Bootstrap and maybe, just maybe figure this stuff out on my own.  Like why would I ever want to change the color of my H1 element from anywhere but Atom.  Making no sense to me.


According to Alexa, “Right now its -22 degrees.”  She doesn’t do windchill which I am assuming is around -45 degrees or so.  It be cold.  Real cold.  At least this totally ridiculous cold will be short lived as we are supposed to be in the 40s this weekend.  It’s so cold today, the mail isn’t running in Iowa.


Kingdom Hearts 3 arrived yesterday and Teresa dove right in.  She had said she was gonna wait till Friday, but when she got home yesterday she played for several hours.  Either the art isn’t as good as previous versions or I have gotten pickier about the art.  But the art just doesn’t look as good as I remember, especially not on the box.  C’mon its on a PS/4 it should be stunning and in my opinion it’s not.  Looks fun though, and Teresa loves it.  So I guess its all good.


One week till my biopsy.  Three or Four weeks till results.


I haven’t talk about them much, but I love my Airpods.  No sound leakage, so I can listen to whatever sitting right next to Teresa and she can’t hear anything.  Plus they sound incredible.  Music is so sharp and clear.  My only real complaint is battery life.  Listening to stuff I can get about 4 hours, using them as a headset, I get a little less than 3 and I got them so I could stop wearing my big headset while gaming.  Firstly they only work with Bluetooth 5, and you could buy Bluetooth 4 adapters.  Problem 1.  Problem 2, when I run Discord or Mumble on my phone, the Airpods run out of power before the game is over.  So, they have basically become headphones for listening to Udemy and Music on my laptop (which miraculously has a Bluetooth 5 chip in it).  So 199 bucks for a really nice sounding set of headphones.  Oh well, they were a Christmas present, so I shouldn’t complain.


Just a bit about my idea.  I added a little more to the scope of the idea.  Just a little bit more cuz I had another little idea.   Hopefully this is going to be so cool.
