Oslo and eee

Well, first full day in Oslo. We were bussed to a golf club some 30km south of Oslo for our workshops, and frankly I can’t understand why. The venue was very sweet in a Scandinavian way, but frankly it wasn’t exactly suited to the numbers or the needs. Oh well, it’s all part of life’s rich tapestry. I spent some time trying to track down a supplier that actually had the Asus eee in stock. I think I tracked one down, but this is definitely this year’s Tracey Island for geeks, an ultra portable sub notebook that runs Linux and weighs nowt. I know I should wait for the 8Gb version but frankly I suspect I could have days of fun with this, and also take it everywhere whereas my current laptop (Powerbook G4 15″) is frankly bloody heavy.

Listening to the Clash and reading up on the Leica M7, life ain’t too bad..
