Plus, the upshot being that I get to keep using this for a while and once they do release Windows 7 I think there's a good chance I'll actually buy a copy as an upgrade. I'm a little annoyed that I wasted the money on my one copy of Vista, but so be it. Now if only I didn't have to move. I probably won't get to really push this new setup to it's limits until I've settled down a bit out in Virginia.
Oh well, it was about time I started to work on my computer-fu and it's nice actually being successful at some things. I got Mac OS X running on my tiny Asus 1000H laptop Unfortunately I ended up going back to XP since I'm taking it with me on my trip. Even though I have a work provided cell phone and laptop I prefer to keep those largely for work-only so my current plan is to take the 2 laptops with me on my trip and then leave the work one in my office and keep mine in the hotel / house (assuming that I find one before I head back in a couple of weeks).
Moving and staying connected and comfortable is surprisingly complicated.
