why i chose the eee pc

aka “finally something i can write about the eee before actually owning it”.

aka “a distraction better than any, for keeping me from doing what i should be doing”.

in any case, here’s why i chose the asus eee pc 701 4G.

i found out about the eee in september. i had been asked by a friend how it is possible that i don’t own a laptop. so i told him i hadn’t found one small enough. then i had to start looking, and found the eee, on some site for ultramobiles i guess. not sure which.

in late november i made a blog post about it and decided to buy one. mainly because of these factors:

– small & light enough to be constantly carried around, much like i carry around books or notes.
– cheap enough, because there’s a good chance that i’ll forget my bag/eee from time to time, and that’s why the price tag is so important. loosing a 300e valued laptop is far better than a 2000e dito.
– the keyboard. i need qwerty keyboard, i need the keys, i need to be able to type fast enough if i am to use it as a notepad on meetings and lectures (which i intend to do).

of course the connectivity (wlan, ethernet, possibility of usb-bluetooth) was a prerequisite for even considering the eee. as the magnificent eee guru jkk put it when he hacked the eee to include 3g modem:

Mobility means also mobile connectivity to me.

i might just perform the same hack, although i hesitate because i’m not a fan of 3g.

söndag kväll och jag har sett alla bra filmer ren

jag har filmfiilis. men alla filmer jag vill se har jag ren sett. jag vill till exempel se:

  • battlestar galactica (mini series). bästa sci-fi ever.
  • monty python-långfilm. life of brian, the quest for the holy grail eller the meaning of life.
  • alice i underlandet. kukkuu, det blir int bättre än så.

alice i underlandet

so now what. *morrar*

desperate times calls for desperate measures

so i’m officially having a blog crisis. for weeks i tried to deny it to myself; i’m just too busy, i have too many interesting things going on, no time to blog. yeah right. i have nothing going on. nothing bloggy at least.

except for one thing. and this is desperate. but, as the caption states…

there’s an elk on my wall. it’s red and about to jump through my window. and it needs a name. i think it looks like a lennart.
