Today my new toy arrived: a modified asus EEE pc with a touch screen. Thay are, essentially, a very very small compute. It’s just larger then a piece of A5 paper, and while the stats are understandiably low, it still boasts an impressive 512 MB of RAM – that’s impressive in terms of the pre-vista era, not impressive currently – which is the same as my desktop. It has no CD drive, which is irratiting, but the main problem seems to be that the up arrow key and the shift key are right beside each other, so whenever I reach for a capital lette I start typing in the line above. I’m currently downloading EEEXubuntu to install over the current XP, which should raise it’s usability in terms of lag, as this box only has a 900 MHz processor.

Some more good news: the wireless card on the EEEpc is capiable of packet injection – allowing for some fun hacking to be performed.
