view from MY porch

(click photos for detail)

Tam finally joined the cool blogger kids* and got herself an Eee PC. I love my little netbook so much - it's light, fast, portable...just perfect for internet and blogging. The screen is good, the keyboard is the right size for my hands and the only problem I've had so far is with the touchpad. I turned off the tapping function because it was too sensitive and I ended up clicking everything except the thing I wanted - and then the mouse button started malfunctioning. I admit to nothing, but there might be cookie crumbs stuck underneath. (A blogstress needs fuel, you know.) Anyway, I found a teeny little mouse to go with my teeny little Eee and it works perfectly now. I can blog from bed, watch episodes of Dollhouse at the brewery, throw it in a purse and go to the coffeehouse - I really can take this netbook anywhere. Best thing ever.

And if all that wasn't awesome enough - I decided to buy a Gelaskin to protect it from scratches and to decorate it a little...

(Tam, you clearly have excellent taste.)

Anyway, welcome to the BlogEee (bloggy!) club, Tam... you are in very good company.

*Heh. Just typing that cracked me up. Tam is THE cool kid.

Someone has photos of me and my Eee at Boomershoot. I wish I could remember who it was.

I think it would be cool to see photos of everyone out in the real world with their Eee.

( That means you have to be IN the photo too Breda! )

zomg you have the cool skin on yours!!!


(WV: "copic". As in "I want to get the same GelaSkin, even if it makes me a copic at."

Alan - it would be even better to get a photo of Eee bloggers at the upcoming 2A Blog Bash in Phoenix, no?

Tam - when I saw your post this morning, I squeed. "zOmg! Tam likes the same one I liked!!"

I am such a dork.

I was saying to Bobbi X (yesterday when I was hanging out with the cool kids) it would be cool if there was an up-link between the blog bash and the Indy blogmeet.

They need to make one with the Gadsten Snake on it, or at least a printed-through 1911. Wonder if TSA doofus security balks if you have a gun pron on your laptop? Or even a Gadsten flag...they DID get Janets alert, after all...

Nah, they'd just steal it and put on EBay.

..and now you can get rid of all of the microsquish stuff. Ubuntu Netbook remix! I use it on my Dell Mini 12.. I am a little jealous of the Eees but I am too uncoordinated to type on the reduced keyboards.

I have one and I really like it. It's got the smaller screen, but I have no problem with it. Beats squinting at a phone screen.
