I’m writing this on the new laptop. I’d like to say that I’m in California, but I’m still in the house. And yes, I changed the theme for the blog because it wasn’t displaying the right-hand column with the old theme on the laptop.
It’s actually pretty useful to be able to see the store and whatever I’m designing on this second machine in IE which I never use and which has a more usual screen resolution.
I did see lots of unprotected wi-fi connections – and it was funny but for a little while, I left my wi-fi connection unsecured and almost immediately I could see that my neighbor’s Mac had latched on to it. I kicked him off though.
Another funny thing – is that when the laptop is being advertised, they say: includes 8 in 1 media reader. Which is true, but none of those 8 things that it reads are CF cards. I’ll bew using SD cards with the Infrared camera; but still, you’d think that if they were going to enclose 8 readers in one, that one would be for CF cards; but maybe CF cards are on the way out for everything but higher end Canons.
Maybe I’ll plan my trip around wi-fi hotspots. Go from one Starbucks to the next. Then I can be like one of those guys in the previous picture, sitting in the coffee shop and typing away with buds in my ear. I am slowly becoming the thing I made fun of, or at least made social commentary on just a few days ago. Oh, how quickly we are pulled in to the digital vortex, esp. if we already have years of digital proclivities. DIGITAL PROCLIVITIES. I wonder if that name has been taken yet for a domain name?
Good. And I got it networked with my mainframe.
