It’s been nearly a year since I first cracked open the case of my Asus Eee 701SD. At the time, the netbook was probably a middle-of-the-road option, as far as the Eee line goes. I have used it as my main computer, running Ubuntu Linux. I’ve been pretty tough on that computer. I’ve accidentally dropped […]
I just recently purchased a Sony eReader (PRS-505). My reasons are many, but most important are the portability of books (much like music and mp3 players) and the fact that with each new book I buy, I have to give up more space in my house. I love using it – it’s easy to see […]
A Successful Beginning
Good news! I recently sold my first article! The article, Full Support for the Eee 701SD in Linux, outlines the steps a person should take to install Ubuntu successfully with full support for all the Eee’s hardware. It’s amazing what a little bit of time can yield in the open source community. Please visit the […]
An Eeevolution in Computing?
For a few months prior to September, my old laptop (a giant Toshiba Satellite) was on the fritz. The power button wouldn’t work. The battery couldn’t charge (or keep a charge when it actually did get charged) because the adapter/charger didn’t fit right, so I had to jiggle it around until it sat just right […]
Questions, Answers, and Relief
Questions: Why do people insist on driving their vehicles into ours? Why can’t my car door stay closed when I close it so the dome light doesn’t drain the battery? Answers: (to questions that may differ from those listed above) PCOS – at least it’s an answer and now we have a plan IE sucks. […]
I changed the theme. I don’t know why I ever wanted to not use this one. Basically, I was sick of the other one not working with Firefox and other non-IE browsers. This one works with Firefox, at least. Any input on how it looks with other browsers?
Afraid of Losing It?
I lose things sometimes. Not as much as I used to, but sometimes I do. I’m sure you do, too. But if you lose an electronic device (such as a notebook computer, MP3 player, cell phone, Palm Pilot, etc.) it may have some capabilities of notifying you of its location. Lost? Check out this article […]
iPhone. It does everything except bake cookies. And they’re probably working on that. But what practical use could I find for it? If I buy an iPhone what other object that currently occupies space in my house/pocket/purse/car/etc. can I get rid of? I get it – it does Internet phone pictures video music Can I […]
It has come to my attention that my new template/theme/whatever-you-want-to-call-it is not compatible with Firefox. I apologize and am working on fixing it. However, I really like this template so that’s not going to change. In the meantime, please view the blog in Internet Explorer. I promise to not place any malicious code anywhere near […]
Every once in a while, a new artist seeps into my consciousness little by little. Emme Packer is the latest to make her way in. Jerry introduced her to me a while ago when he listened to one of her songs on myspace. She sings sweetly and writes her own music. She plays guitar and earnestly […]
