THE XO LAPTOP FROM CHITCHAT

REPOSTED FROM MY THOUGHTS (hshawjr@blogspot.com/haroldshawjr.com)

Hi Everyone – well the first day back at school started with an hour’s delay.
I had 14 inches of snow in the dooryard and it took me almost 2 hours to clean it up. What a way to start a year, but I live in Maine so I have to expect it.

Well after lunch, I had a very pleasant surprise, I received the XO that I won in a drawing from the website: Chitch.at Thank you Jack!!!!! I really hope that your site is successful.

My very first impression was that it was really small compared to my laptop. But I really like it, it is actually quite cool and everyone at school thought it was pretty neat too. It won’t replace my laptop, but I can see uses for it when I am at conferences and to use it as an Internet machine. I am sure that I will find other uses for it as well, but typing on that keyboard is interesting and cuts my typing speed about in half, maybe more. Also getting used to the Linux basedoperating system that has it own quirks and has been something that I wanted to do, but just never got around to.

So over all it was really a pretty good first day after vacation and start to a new year.
