The trouble with blogging is finding the time to write one. Inspiration invariably strikes when one is not in a position to note it, and I rarely have the time to sit down and type when it does and I am near a keyboard.
Writing on a tablet or phone is pretty wretched at the best of times, it’s come a long way, but typing on a tablet is just not as conducive to writing and certainly not as satisfying as hammering away on a good mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches.
Oh the wondrous noise of productivity when you crack a tricky Powershell issue and the script just flies from your fingers, the rest of the office alerted to your success by the rapid clickyclickyclickyclickyclickyclicky of the keys, (Sometimes unfortunately followed by the particular sound of backspace being hit repeatedly) but I digress.
Laptops take that little bit too long to get out and get going, and aren’t exactly pocketable, perhaps I should try a Chromebook, or in the car maybe I’ll try Google Voice Typing, the results could at least be amusing.
Either way, perhaps so my wife doesn’t have to put up with me bemoaning some lost IT cause due to an unforeseen bug, or undelivered promise I should make the time to note it here. I doubt many (if any!) will read it, but it gets the idea out of my head.
