Laptop Update!

DullahanWell, the laptop finally landed on Tuesday.  I didn’t get a whole lot of time with it, other than to start some of the installs of software I was going to need and want to have.  Still working out what editing suite to get that wont cost me an arm and leg…  However, one piece of software I use for remote desktop has caused some issues.  Splashtop Streamer does not work well with others on the PC.  I could not run any full-screen games.  Removed it and boom, everything works.  I also named it as well, rather than Laptop-SN.

Dullahan – Headless Horseman or Headless Rider, from old Irish lore.  The Dullahan is a headless rider, usually on a black horse who carries their own head under one arm. The head’s eyes are small, black, and constantly dart about like flies, while the mouth is constantly in a hideous grin that touches both sides of the head.  All the rest of my computers and tablets and phones have all been named after monsters, this felt fitting.
