Well I had ordered a new office chair from Jysk Furniture on boxing day and was expecting it to be delivered in two too three weeks. It was originally suppose to be delivered to my postal service address in New Westminster, They where suppose to deliver it by 5:30 pm on January 3, 2017 but where unable to meet that deadline, I was able to get a hold of the delivery drivers and have them deliver it directly to my door here in Surrey. All I can say is amazing service I will definitely order again from them.
Yes I am grateful for Public Transit. Though it might not perfect or the best in any sense but the fact that I do have access to a public transit system that can get me from one place to another is better than having to either walk everywhere or take and pay for taxi cabs or wait for someone to be able to drive me somewhere.
One of the things I love to do is check out Thrift Stores in my local area, especially the ones that are in support of local charities such as the SPCA of BC or the Salvation Army that offer and run local programs. This is one reason I shop at Thrift Stores, another reason I shop at these types of stores is that I can find stuff at amazing deals when you are on tight budget and need house hold items, or even clothing.
I am grateful for Electricity! Yes Electricity, with out it I would not be able to post on a blog let alone be able to cook, have light heat, computers, smart phones or even Internet. So many people take electricity for granted but when it goes out people realize that this day and age we are so reliant on it.
I Have broken away from the main stream of computers or should I say the main stream of Operating Systems on my computer, which I have 3 computers that I use on a daily basis,. Two Desktops and One Laptop, One of my Desktops is dedicated to Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Server as it is the one system that runs my Asterisk System. My other desktop is duel boot Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Desktop and Windows 7 Professional, but I can not remember the last time I booted the my desktop into windows. My laptop is also configured to duel boot Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and Windows 7 Professional.
On my laptop I do boot into windows more often as I do find that some games will only operate on windows and not on Linux, as well there are a few sites that I monitor that require me to use Microsoft Internet Explorer to access, other than that and a couple other systems that I can only access using windows. I primarily use Linux, the nice thing about Linux is that it comes with or should I say has access to countless free applications that are equivalent to some of the major software that costs hundred if not thousands of dollar, but for FREE.
I can do the same stuff that people do using Adobe Products, Microsoft Office and so much more and it costs nothing, The other thing I love about Linux is I get to choose what and when I wish to do updates to the system. I also love that Linux out of the box or should I say fresh install is more secure than any Windows or OSX Installation, as well I do not have fears of my privacy been compromised but operating system like Microsoft Windows 10 does.
Threats of Virus are next to none with Linux based operating system. I have even found that while running Ubuntu my system out preforms that of the same tasks on Windows.
