#3 - late night homework was bittersweet

Motto: Hasta La Vista, homework

Apparently my tablet's Blogger app doesn't support colored text. I guess it will be pretty obvious which columns I write on my computer and which I write on some Android device. Speaking of Blogger and mobile devices - blogger natively supports a "built for mobile" version of your blog. Looking at this on my phone is actually very pleasant. I like that.

Another off-topic thing before I get to my main point for this column: I was playing around on Google Earth with my girlfriend last night.

I estimate that I've probably written between 300 and 400 of these things in the past. This exact template has been the used for most of them (save the Tumblrs) so it seems like a winning combination. I'll stick with this.
