The funny part is, that I like reading your blog. You seem like a nice person and all. I just have my own opinions and people don't respect them. I know I don't look like I'm 25 years old, but I assure you that I am. I am really not a hard person to get along with.

I thought todays episode of The Screen Savers was very good and funny. But, it is sort of sad to see the old set go. But, change is good.

Jims Mobile Edition Website - I'm still working on it. If you have a pocket pc with 802.11b wireless internet access it should work. A 802.11b compact flash card for the pocket pc should also work. It worked on mine.
Well, It looks like they finally figured it out and set a date for Six Flags. We will try again on September 7th. All I ask for is one fun day. Is that to much to ask for? I think I am going to build my own computer system. The Screen Savers today inspired me.

Dell eyes "white box" market

Dell eyes "white box" market
update Dell Computer is seeking alliances with mom-and-pop shops to further its growth in the PC market.
Just a month ago I did not have a pocket pc. I have one now. Just a couple of weeks ago I did not have a xbox. I have one now.
That is an example.
If I want something like a laptop, pocket pc, or xbox I will go out and buy it myself. I will not ask someone to use there stuff. That and I live in Texas. But, the search for a new laptop continues. I went to last night and was impressed with there selection. Also, has some good prices. But, I like the Dell name and brand. I think I will go to Gateway and look there....
Rumors: Segway isn't really Ginger
I want a laptop. I am looking at the Dell 2650. I went to Dell's website and customized a 8200 and when I got done it came out to be $1,868. I'm sorry that just won't be happening. For you guys that have a Dell 8100 you are lucky. You know who you are! I had a Fujitsu. I sold it on ebay. I guess it was a good thing to do, it had some problems. And today my mother shocked me. She said that she is going to go look at trucks. When my mother talks like that you know something is going to happen down the road. She said she wanted to look at the Ford Rangers, Dodge Dakota, and then Toyota.

I wish I still had my laptop. Well, it did have problems and I am glad I don't have to worry about it anymore. I just like having a computer that was mobile. My next purchase will be a laptop. I don't care if it is used or new. My next laptop will have a dvd and a video out on it. That would be great.

A Note from Patrick Norton
Hey, it's Friday! We're not airing a live show today. But that doesn't mean we're taking the day off. Actually, we're hard at work, preparing for our new set construction.

In case you haven't heard, we're getting a new set. So while it's being built, we're going to do the show from the Tech Live set. On Friday, we're having rehearsal on the Tech Live set, so we're not totally clueless when we move. Set construction starts the first week in September.

Have a good weekend!
