... I just bought a very very small computer. I was sitting in the park in Edinburgh, sniffling miserably to some extent due to a cold I developed at Loch Lomond and thought: I wish I could write a novel now. Then I thought: Hmmm I wonder how much these tinytiny computers are... and now I suddenly own an eePC and I am so excited... there seems to be naught wrong with it! It's tiny, with three hours battery life, a nice keyboard and it runs LINUX, so none of that Microsoft grief... and it even has a slot to read digital photos, and a wireless modem built in, so instead of having a machine that will be just for writing any time any place I am hooked back on the web whether I want it or not. Ah well!
Here's a picture of me being happy which it took with its gratiutous in-built web cam.
And have I started writing that novel? Yes I have.
