Fun Computer Days


I have noted in other posts, that bringing the Internet in to my home has really changed my daily routine. I am comfortable being home more, and have a wider variety of activities to fill my day.

I spend a great deal of time on the computer, but I do many different things. I am online and offline. I write, listen to music, watch movies, play games, and surf the Internet.

Most of my Internet time is spent doing research for software and my blog articles. I also spend much of my time online managing several email accounts and communicating with friends.

The IBM R51 has changed my days as well. I am back in a Windows environment again. I have had to go out and explore all the free software available for Windows. These are programs that are not available with Ubuntu.

I generally have about three programs for each area of computing I am active in. I have music players and DVD burners. I have graphics programs and word editing software.

Each activity involves its own programs and it adds up to a fascinating amount of software. I have also been gathering some software to explore the new activities I am interested in.

It has been enjoyable to read ebooks and to listen to audio books. I would like to make many of my ebooks in to audio experiences. I began my software search with several ebook readers, and have now found software that creates Text to Speech wave files.

It is possible to easily listen to my ebooks on my computer, or to change them in to files I can listen to on my iPod. I plan to be well read real soon.

Listening to an ebook is nice during the customary long waits for food at our local Guatemalan restaurants.

We wait for out food, but it is also nice that there is no rush to have you leave your table after your meal is finished. Our meals become quite leisurely. Then too, it is nice to have the iPod when no one stops by my table to visit.

That’s what’s happening here. Future posts will explore these ideas further as I more have more experience in each area. It is all good.
