Re: iPad Enthusiasm

Hey Vic, My feeble attention has been stretched in other directions lately. From your loving thoughts that I see you spreading about in the forums, nothing has changed much since I was here last. I was down to Portsmouth in early august which if I remember correctly, is at least the right side of th...

Re: iPad Enthusiasm

I ordered one as soon as I was able (3G with maximum memory). The size factor was the key as it would do stuff (I hoped) that my Touch would not. And I was proven right in a trip to England this summer. Moderate writing only as I'm only a dilettante compared to the lot of you. With a separate keyboa...

R. A. Heinlein

I'm rereading my R.A. Heinlein. Nothing like introducing a friend of the opposite sex to your favourite author and having questions fired at you. Refreshing (both the lady and the books) :wink: .

Re: Kiln People

I'd forgotten about this one by Brin. I had started it but seemed to stall (stopped reading it for no real reason) and returned it to the library. I'll look it up again.

Keith,

A $5 increase is modest for all but a few. Glad to hear that 1.1 is out and will download tonight.

I have a Brother HL2040. One year to use up the first toner. Replacement was $80 + Tax. Drum would cost more than a new machine!

I went back to school to become a programmer in the late 90's. Discovered I'm a terrible programmer. Actually discovered in my first job post school that I'm good at data-cleanup.

If you're networked, then get one big one that will stay in one spot. Some desktop units are fragile so buy quality.

I have a Western Digital 120G portable that has stood up to ~9months of use and being moved and loaned out.

I have the Tungsten E2 and the Palm Universal Wireless Keyboard. Software: Wordsmith for Writing and ThoughtMgr for Outlining. The Wireless keyboard can be fussy if not set up just so but quite good otherwise. As to Typos, that's a question of flow. I've learned to turn off spell checking when using...
