I just want to see if it’s possible to do the kind of post I usually do, with a screensnap. Apparently so. On an Acer Chromebook at Best Buy. Next to it is a Samsung one that I’m tormenting with a massive Google Books PDF that has yet to open.

This blog’s template sticks ten posts at a time on the front.
Today is a rare day I’ll likely do more than ten posts.
So to see everything, when getting to the bottom of the scroll hit the “Older posts” link.
The first post published today was: A Public Service Announcement From Xiaomi
Until recently, I’d be able to read back several pages of a Weibo feed. Now it’s limiting some feeds to just two pages.
This is frustrating as hell. Today one of my Xiaomi feeds goes back just to about 14:00 (2PM) at the end of the second page. No way to go all the way to 8AM (when most China businesses begin their Weibo work).
So if other people checking Weibo wonder, “Well why didn’t he run this Weibo?” — it’s probably because I couldn’t see it.

I will be verrrry careful about what I read and post tomorrow.
Teclast will be announcing something tomorrow. They should have picked a better date!
Something has gone wrong with my Weibo account.
I’ve been asked to sign in (I usually don’t sign out) — and now it’s saying the email I used to register isn’t recognized.
If my account has been deleted, this is a big disaster for me. I didn’t bookmark all the new accounts I added since getting an account.
Same-day update: My Weibo access is totally fucked for today. Will try to access it as best I can using limited number of old Bookmarks. Screensnaps will look different, without account logos.
There’s no tablet news out of China. Things are quiet. Even the hype for existing tablets has been dying down. Some are on sale (in China only) for up to fifty percent off(!).
It’s not just me with little new to post. Some China tech sites look like they’re withering for lack of new posts.
A family member has been afflicted.
I’ve spent the past month between hospitals.
This is in addition to the IRL Complications that have prevented me from updating this blog regularly.
Updating of this blog will continue to be irregular and with fewer updates until the entire situation improves.
By the way, I lightly used the Nexus 9 again yesterday. I still like it. It also had the keyboard cover. US$129 for that keyboard case is highway robbery. And I couldn’t get it to work with the tablet. But I could type on it, which surprised me.
