I'm really looking forward to the long weekend. I will go to the cottage for three days. I haven't been there for a month or more, and I miss the place. The last several weekends, I have been at my mother's place, cleaning out the basement. I need a break.
I started to write this post on my new laptop, but decided instead to write it on my netbook. My friend Kirk brought his MSI Wind netbook to Toastmasters this evening, and I felt a twinge of jealousy. His has a bigger screen, and an actual hard drive that's about 160gb big. This one, has a whopping 8g. His runs XP. I'm running a variant of linux because this computer would struggle with any version of Windows. I put a legal version of XP on it last year, and the computer nearly died.
I still like this computer for lots of things. Taking it to an internet cafe like the Al Whittle Theatre is a pleasure. I see people all around me with these big ass laptops that they have to lug around from place to place. This one easily fits into a small laptop bag that I got for 10 bucks last December.
Two more days to go. Two more days to... the cottage!
