blogging from the wee computer
A lot of the hacking I want to do involves updating the system, and that requires an internet connection...and that's one of the issues: getting this thing working with the WSU VPN so I can use that connection. Can't use the connection at home because my cable provider works off MAC addresses and I just didn't want to call them and deal with that. So, I had to wait until I had a moment to sneak off to an open WiFi place—in this instance, the coffeeshop downtown. The wireless works like a charm and I've already begun to update packages and configure things the way I like them (hello, KDE desktop!)
Of course, the ultimate reason for having this wee computer is the enhanced productivity. Isn't it ironic, then, that I'm blogging from a coffeeshop? I should be taking notes while sitting in the MASC, or giving a presentation in class. All in due time...
