Take a Break Tuesday: Google Feud

If you use Google and love trivia as much as I do, then you'll LOVE Google Feud!



Google Feud is a game from Justin Hook that is based on Family Feud but pulls the answers directly from Google's autocomplete. It's a giant time-suck so beware, but it is SO fun!

Oh Hey Friday: Totally Tech

Happy Friday! Sorry it's been quiet around here the last two weeks. I have been super busy with school, work, and life, so there hasn't been much time left for blogging. But, I'm back today to share some of tech-related sites, updates, etc.

Wallpapers


There are currently two main sites where I find some really cute and creative laptop, tablet, and phone wallpapers.

Hardware

I am definitely in the Mac camp when it comes to computers. For some reason or another, I didn't download Yosemite right away when it was released last summer. In the process of downloading the new operating system, I discovered two things: my computer had almost no space left on the hard drive and that it's best to do a "clean install" when downloading a new operating system.

I purchased additional memory and installed it myself (!!!), so that solved one problem. However, I wasn't quite prepared to do a "clean install" of Yosemite. Doing a clean install means you wipe your computer and install an operating system that hasn't been integrated with any data yet. This helps ensure that any bits left by previous operating systems get wiped away.

To do a clean install, you first need to ensure that you back up your computer which I hadn't been doing. I purchased an external hard drive and a padded case to protect it to use as a back up.

 I read some reviews and decided on going with the Seagate Backup Plus Slim. After a few days of being on the computer struggle bus, I was back up and running with a faster, better-performing computer!

Domains

If you came to my blog via Bloglovin' then you probably didn't notice, but I finally purchased my own domain for Jane Not So Plain! 



JNSP is now living at www.JaneNotSoPlainBlog.com. Don't worry, the Blogspot URL still works and redirects. It may not be a big deal to most, but it makes me proud to have my very own URL for Jane Not So Plain!

Music

Lately, I've been using two platforms for listening to music, especially throughout the workday. I mainly use Spotify because it's so easy to use with access to most of the music I enjoy.


However, I also listen to videos on YouTube every once in awhile. I've come across a few songs/videos that I really like but can't find anywhere else. I only have a handful of songs on that playlist, but I'm always looking for new music to add!
