I had been posting before about buying an OLPC, but once I figured out what I was looking for in a sub-notebook/PDA, it looked more and more like the Asus eeepc was what I wanted.
Had a bit of Christmas money left, so I'm now posting from my new 2G Surf version.
First thoughts: cool. Small. Cool.
The keyboard will take some getting used to. It, too, is very small.
I have several II's and not enough room to keep them all. A pair of IIe enhanced, a plain IIe, and even a II+, all of which work. Also some spare plain IIe mb's, unknown functionality. Ditch the plus, b/c I can sustain my IIe population? Or the IIe's, b/c they rely on custom soldered in chips?
After a while with no internet, I'm glad to be back.
I've finally got my first computer job!
Took delivery of a skidload of apple stuff just before xmas as i knew i would have some time then. Fixed up the imacs and B & W's to dispose off and broke up most of the other stuff into the parts bins. Did get some nice old bits, including some machines i have not owned before like an 8550 (appleshare file server) an 8500 MP, a 5300 and two 3400 powerbooks, which should prove interesting.
Connie, as I have lovingly named my 8600 PM, has a few upgrades. Because I can (my mantra), I am documenting in this blog, what has been done and what is planned or in process.
**This post is a work in progress and is being updated as I record correct specs and change hardware.**
My story is a long one, but it aptly describes my life with Mac's. It is a tale of happiness, betrayal, sadness, and...um...happiness? *looks behind self* (does that sound good?...I guess so...whatever) *faces keyboard* Anyways... My tale begins long ago in the far away year of 1993. I was only 5 years old at the time. I was living in the carefree, yet idiotic years of my youth.
Oh the woes of running a forum...
