The Netbook

I was supposed to be on sled patrol this afternoon, but they forecast rain and we cancelled. Instead, I went to Staples and bought the ASUS EEE 1000HA Netbook I wrote about on the weekend. I also got a slimline Sony USB CD/DVD since netbooks typically don't have them and a Panasonic voice recorder with speech-to-text capability. Hopefully, this should both let me capture my blog thoughts while riding and reduce my typing time.

I'm not in a rush to configure this little machine, but it will become my primary computer when I finish. The desktop will be relegated to network hub, file backups, printer sharing and games.
