Some of them have stuck around even when it didn’t seem like they should. Strangely, Chromebooks are getting a little …

Sometimes…well, sometimes stuff gets the better of you. Restless Tech took a bit of an “unplanned hiatus”. Yes, that is a euphemism for “life got in the way.” I won’t go into the details but a bit of recharging was necessary and likely for the best. Some new things brewing including plotting a trip to …

I am feeling a bit faint…

So back in December my wife and I took a trip to Spain for our 20th anniversary and she fainted dead away about two-thirds of the way over the Atlantic. I, of course, am made of sterner stuff.
