Heading for home

Yesterday was my final day at Loncon (the World SF convention). The convention actually continues until early afternoon, but after four days of mingling with large numbers of people, I am always peopled-out, so I had planned to head home today anyway. In fact I won't get home until tomorrow because I'm doing a slight detour via my brother's house to visit my Dad, who is much improved. In fact he may be well enough to leave hospital and return to the care home where he's lived happily for the last 12 months.

I'll do a proper report on the convention when I get back and have downloaded photos and have proper internet access again. Sadly the little Asus Eee (along with the mobile broadband dongle) that has proved so valuable for mobile internet access over the years is definitely showing its age and very few sites still work with the old browser. It is, however, still useful as a mobile word processor. The keyboard may be small, but I can touch type on it and it is far far better then using the phone's virtual keyboard.

I also want to apologise for not commenting on your LJ posts while I've been away. Until this last LJ update, the Eee could do that, now it can't. Also, I can no longer access Flickr. I really hate having to abandon equipment and gagdets that still work perfectly but have been superceded by the latest software that is not backwards compatible. :(
