When I logged in this afternoon to my Displio account I noticed that several of their pre-created widgets that you can load onto the device were reordered and some had changed. So they're definitely working on correcting the broken ones. They also had responded to comments on their Kickstarter page noting that things weren't working properly.

On a whim I thought I'd try the Twitter widget again, and lo and behold it worked this time.

I'm still a little disappointed that the multiple screens aren't working yet (each side is supposed to have it's own screen), but it's obvious they're working on correcting some bugs so I'm hopeful that feature is forthcoming.

Originally when I'd backed the kickstarter last year I had thought I could leave such a device lying around on my desk and it would update with different info I'd programmed it with. Now a year into having a kid and I barely sit at my computer desk (although I'm hopeful that will change) so for now I've just been setting it around in random spots.

I really think it would be a fun device to have at work and maybe someday, if some bugs are worked out and they ever roll out the mobile apps. For now it would just be more hassle than it's worth, especially since it's wifi driven and wouldn't talk to my phone via bluetooth.

Still, it's a neat device. You can program your own widgets in javascript so I'll probably have Chris help me with some things since he's more familiar than I am with js.

Lots of fun with Scout this morning.

The Displio I backed last year on Kickstarter arrived today. So we spent the evening after Q went to bed playing with different settings. There is a serious lack of support on their website, and not everything works yet, but it's nice that the device is finally in hand after over a year of waiting.

Nothing is safe, not even the kitchen counter.

He's been pretty fascinated by the painted door. Since it's a new color it's practically a new door!

Chris spent the day finishing the door we have in the kitchen to the lower level. It's been unfinished with the cat door in it since last summer, but now that the weather is warm again he wanted to paint it.
 So white on one side and chalkboard paint on the other.
Just like the door to our basement! When Quinn is older he'll probably enjoy sitting in the kitchen drawing on the door while one of us is cooking.

For now he can just enjoy throwing toys through the cat door, like usual.

We took Quinn to the library for the first time today. They were having a used book sale so we wanted to swing by and see if there was anything cool to pick up.
We played a little in the kids area. They have a pretty nice toy room off to the side of the kids book section.
And they have a fish tank up by the help desk in the kids section. The kids section in the Wyoming city library is pretty awesome!

He's still enjoying the ballpit!
