more computer thoughts

My brain just won't give me a rest, it's continuing to bug me about computers. At least it hasn't been totally in vain, as some good thoughts have come of it all.

thinking about different

I know it's a long way off, but my brain likes to grab hold of something and think long-term every once in a while. In this case I've been thinking about laptops, specifically for use at school. There are a few options I have, and I've got a lot of time to noodle them, but I just wanted to get them down here and maybe they'll leave my brain alone for a while.

Essentially, I have three options, one of those having two sub-options; upgrade, borrow, or buy. And I'm not sure where I stand right now.

I rock, and so do Macs

Greetings from Vegas! We're all here and settled in somewhat, and having fun. I've had a swim, a couple of drinks, a barbequed dinner... life is good.

Three of us brought laptops because this place was advertised with high speed internet. Unfortunately, it's not wireless, it's ethernet-based. So we hooked up one of the two Apples that came with us (an iBook) and left it at that. I decided that I would get the other computers sharing its network connection (without ever having done this before). After about 5 minutes of fiddling, it's working, and one other Apple and a Toshiba are now sharing the iBook's high-speed connection. I ROCK! And so do Macs, because it's the Mac that really made it possible. I can only imagine it would have taken hours if I tried to do the same with a Windows computer.

We're having fun thus far, and I'll try to update again later. I'm still hoping for a newer restore of, but we'll see what happens. Later!
