Yet another cool piece of hardware has made its way to my test bench. This time, it's the Toshiba Magnia SG20. I would hazard a guess that Toshiba made way too many of these things, because everyone and his dog is selling them on Ebay. What's inside?

and it's incredible! Sitting in bed surfing tge web with my Sharp Zaurus PDA. Now, 've used other handheld devices for Internet access, including a Blackberry and several cell phones, but there's always been something missing. Well, not so with the C760. A nearly-usable keyboard, an amazing 640x480 resolution, wireless network access, and a web browser that does surprisingly well on just about any web site I've thrown at it!

Incredible! That's all I can say! I acquired a Sharp Zaurus C760 PDA this week. It's a Japanese-only PDA that runs Linux. I am very impressed with it. It's hands-down the most powerful and versatile PDA that I've ever seen. Being tge Linux hacker that I am, I'm having imense fun playing around. Drop in a wireless card, and now I can do just about any system maintenance remotely. Thats enough from me - back to playing!

I finally did it. I've been threatening to do it for a few years, but I think that Open Source software has matured to a point where I can actually run Linux on my work laptop for most of the time. I'm taking baby steps, though. I took the 20Gb partition and partitioned off 3Gb for Linux. As I slowly get rid of the junk over on the Windows partition, I'll change the sizes of the partitions. The installation was relatively painless, but it did give me one heart stopper.

My wife and I were reminiscing recently about the wonderful fish and chips with curry sauce that we had on our trip to the UK. I did a bit of research to see if there was anything that we could get that was close here in Canada. I found a product that I thought we might be able to order and get shipped here. Well, Cheryl was more resourceful than I, and found a local supplier of British imports, and picked up a package! What a wonderful surprise when I came home! A quick trip to the local 'British' fish & chip shop and we were set. Now, if only I could find a local supplier for Pot Noodle...
