My computer pooped out on me yesterday. Until I can get a better one I was thinking of getting a cheap Chromebook. Anybody have one that they use their extensions on? Trying to make sure extensions work on Chromebooks before I buy one.
Been using CB's since 2016, everything runs perfect except InquiSHIT. Get one with preferably 16 GB of ram. I don't spend more than $400 on one so if they break i just replace them instantly for cheap

Good luck in your house search. The market is hot right now!
The market is crazy here in Western PA as well. We bought our house for $67k 10 years ago and it just appraised for $200k. 2 years ago when we were considering moving it was only $90k. Since my mother in law passed in March, my father in law has been considering selling his house and I keep trying to explain to him how the market is working right now and that while he'll make money, there won't be anywhere for him to actually live once he sells (no, he's not moving in with me *stomps foot*).

Correct , once you sell and collect that fat check you'll end up in multiple bidding wars that you'll eventually lose or spending all that extra cash outbidding people

My mother(of course) once read that cats liked corn on the cob. So she offers the cats, of which there were several, corn. The entire group opinion seemed to be that she had gone insane. The lead cat(mine) looked like she was saying, ''You got a ham sandwich, and you're offering me cold corn?'' The untasted corn ended up in the compost bin. The rats ate it with sluggish uncertainty. I liked it. but I had butter on mine.
I had a cat that would steal the eaten corn cobs and suck on them. Weirdest thing.

Perfect name for Inquisit. Which truly sucks.

Or, you could do what I do. Buy a refurbished Dell OptiPlex. Cost less than 400.00. Lasts well and will do everything since it's a desktop. Microsoft approved. I'm on my second one in 6 years. When this one quits. I'll order up another. It's a good work computer--and CHEAP. My 400 bucks bought a 16 ram, 1 tg hard drive, dual processor Dell AND a nice new 27'' HP monitor. There was change left over....I believe that ChristopherASA @ChristopherASA got one similar a while back.
