The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Falling behind; Picture Info
There comes a time when a person must recognize they cannot keep up with things. When the backlog represents more than can feasibly gone through while still keeping up with new events. When ...

Sorry, I haven't reached that point yet. I'm not willing to recognize defeat just yet. Maybe when I attempt to do it again in June after this next week and a half.

Oh yes, I took over 2 GiB of pictures in Washington, DC. That might take a while to upload, especially if I attempt to filter and sort them, never mind adding descriptions. I still don't like the methods and types of photo management and display available. :-\

I'm going to run down to Fry's and see if they have a decent netbook or laptop without feeling completely ripped off. I'd like to get something a little speedier (the memory in this one is DDR333). I want to leave this laptop here, and maybe try putting Ubuntu (instead of Kubuntu) on the new one (... that I'll dedicate an entire entry to).

Maybe not, but I can at least try. My drive tends to die frequently so it takes a lot of tries.

Fry's is nice for browsing when you have no idea what you're looking for, but not so good when you know exactly what you want. I'm also getting very annoyed at their lack of information on the laptop signs for the things I really want to know. Weight, battery life, and memory & bus speeds. Only the netbooks have that info. :-(

guess what you can do is write model #'s down then go home and look up the info.. best way to find the real info anyway

What makes things slightly difficult is that almost all the models they offer are slightly different from the ones offered on NewEgg. Infering they have the same stats for anything not specified on the Fry's side isn't a good idea. Anyway, I'm going to see what's available on NewEgg again then maybe seeing about shipping it to someone on my route in California.

Just Google by model number. :) Newegg doesn't have everything...

And you're welcome to mail the old one to me. ;)

They don't have everything, but their reviews tend to give pertinent information regarding gotchas I'm more likely to care about than the generics a lot of review sites give. Well, once I get past the obligatory "It's NewEgg, it's perfect" reviews.

I'll keep that in mind, heh. :-)
