The manuscript is still with Cuzzie. She told me last weekend that she had been having a bit of trouble with her eyes. Nothing to worry about, but it has delayed matters a bit. Hopefully, |I should get it back by the weekend.
In the meantime, I have been preparing for my annual penance by downloading the Emarker to mark GCSE English Language papers, as I have done every summer since 2007. That can only be done in Windows, so it was back to the other half of the hard drive to work in Windows 7.
The main reason why I installed Linux on the old machine was to breathe a bit of life into it. I have since made the discovery that its woeful Chrome performance was really down to an excess of cookies. Once these were cleared out, it began to perform more like it should.
That prompted me to experiment with a new browser that I have heard of recently. It is called 'Brave'. Its claim to fame is that it blocks all adverts and doesn't track your activities. I downloaded it, installed it, and am immediately impressed. It is hugely fast on even this old slug of a machine. Needless to say, it is now my default browser and the need to switch between Linux and Windows is greatly reduced. In the near future, I will have the monbey to get my proper PC repaired, and then I will be installing Brave in Windows 10. Recommended.
