Relearning

It's amazing how difficult it can be to relearn/retrain yourself to do things differently. On my first laptop, I didn't set up any of the "extra" features of the touchpad. I disabled tap-to-click, scrolling, tap-zones, etc, using the touchpad like I would a mouse. On this new laptop, I've gotten use to using tap-to-click and scrolling, and just now enabled some tap zones - now if I tap the upper left hand corner of the touchpad, I should get a double click, while the upper right should give me a right click . . . we'll see if I use this or not . . .

On the other hand, I took right away to using a wheeled mouse and couldn't go back, and I dislike mouse drivers that don't let me set the middle/wheel click to double click. As Jung pointed out to me almost 10 years ago, that means you're doing half the work . . .

I love food

Almost two years ago I made a post over on Roadfood.com about one of my favorite restaurants, Skyline Chili. I got an e-mail today, saying that there had been a response:
Hey Hairylunch,

I wish you'd post some more rather than just this one time. I loved your piece about the Skyline location near UC. I've not been to that one that I know of, but I felt like I had after reading your piece. Man, very descriptive and you made the place come alive. Please contribute some more articles.
Anyway, motivated me enough to make another post, this time about some of my favorite places to eat in Helena . . .

Sorry that the links only go to the forums, and not directly to my posts . . . doesn't seem like there's any direct linking ability . . .
