Following a blog is a great way to stay up to date on what the author is doing.

Hit that link and read for a few hours. There are a lot of goodies (and oddities) in the articles.
I’m also dreaming of having a very small laptop (which are now called netbooks) to use on the commute so that I can surf and blog while on the road, but that turns out to be difficult or expensive or both. The good netbooks are too big, the smaller ones have too short battery life, and the really nice ones run some special Linux-based operating system that doesn’t support my HSDPA USB modem, meaning no Internet connection. And they are all still rather expensive. At the moment I’m hanging on to my Psion but as I’ve written earlier, this is a relationship that can’t last forever.
If someone feels like giving me a free Asus Eee 901 I’d be happy to accept it.
