My take on Flash for websites.

When I see Flash websites, I tend to exit out of them as fast as possible.

As a web developer, I find them extremely annoying, cumbersome, and straight up stupid. I know, this sounds rather idiotic, avoiding these websites like the plague, but I can't stand them.

When I see Flash used for things like games, or videos, it's okay, but I really dislike websites made with it.

Got my laptop!

Finally, I got my laptop!

I've been on it ever since it came in and I'm loving it!

I know I said that I would be putting Ubuntu on it in my last post, but I fell in love with Windows 7, after using it for the first time, and have yet to put it on here.

New laptop!


I've just ordered myself a new laptop!

It's a Lenovo Ideapad b570, it comes with 4GB of RAM, a 500GB HDD and a 15.6 inch screen. (I'm going to add another 2GB of RAM).

It comes with Windows 7 preinstalled, but I'm going to install Ubuntu on it, and leave a 75gb Windows partition for gaming and using programs that I can't get to work through Wine.

This will be my first "new" computer, since all of my older ones have been hand-me-downs from my family.

I can't wait until it gets here!
