First Chewy Order

After hearing all the great reviews, I had been wanting to try Chewy.com. So the other week I decided to buy some much needed items I get about every week to two weeks for the cats, just to try them out. I purchased the items on Thursday evening then woke up to a notification on Friday they had shipped and by Saturday the items were here. The order was correct and I am very pleased how everything went. I am still amazed about the fast delivery. I am glad now that I have an option to buy items like heavy litter that can be shipped to my door. That will be worth every penny as those big boxes of litter are so heavy.

 

Jasper and Linus are excited. They had a @chewy delivery ? today #chewyboxlove

Slack Style Emojis for macOS

I found this great little gem a while ago and finally installed it today. I use Slack a lot for work chats and like the way they do emojis. Rocket is a great little app that allows you to add emojis in any application on macOS. It works a lot better than tapping Control+Command+Space to bring up the characters window.

 

 

The story of the space grey MacBook

I decided long before the new MacBook pros were out I couldn’t wait any longer and just got the very best spec MacBook. Sure it isn’t a workhorse vs the MacBook Pro, but I really won’t be using it that much.  I have another dedicated machine I use for everyday work. I’ve had it for a couple of months now and I really have enjoyed it. I didn’t think I would like the keyboard, but it’s ok for browsing and doing light stuff… If I need to use the laptop to do work then I usually carry a bluetooth mouse and keyboard with me. I do mostly only coding work on it so the laptop actual fairs quite well for that.

I also like the portability of the computer as it’s super thin and light. I really don’t like the idea of all the dongles, but so far I haven’t had to use any. Though I would love to set it up with a monitor at some point to use it as a second machine for simple tasks at the office.
