Well today was fun. We ended up going for pellets. I brought my Toshiba since I have it back now. I have to say in a way, I prefer the 15.4″ screen over the 10.6″ sometimes. The smaller screen is nicer since it has the same resolution pretty much because it can be easier to read text. Also the Averatec in particular has a smaller, though only slightly, keyboard. The touchpad can also be a bit of a pain to me too.
Sadly I also kind of missed having Vista. I would still prefer XP on the Toshiba for speed reasons and some added stability. I like the Vista interface really. It may crash a bit more then XP but it works. I don’t really need more speed since I am not really much of a power user.
Now, something you may have noticed is that I have a few more old entries posted. I would like to have gone in order from oldest to newest but since I use the Clie to do the untagging, I am doing them in alphabetical order as they appear in Documents To Go. I tried to do the work on a laptop and it just feels more annoying to me and takes longer. It’s so much easier to do it with a touch screen is you ask me. I do want to apologize that it is taking me so long.
I have been thinking lately. As some people know I used to review stuff. I might bring it back. I am not really sure because some of my reviews really lacked a professional look to me. I may try and rewrite some of them also. You can leave your say in the comments if you wish. I would like to have some retrospective reviews too, as they always interest me. I like to see how something old can work in today’s world. Sometimes an old computer can be just as useful as a new one.
I would love to get one of the new Traxxas Slayer trucks. If anyone hasn’t seen this, it’s a nitro version of the Slash built around a Revo frame. The engine is a TRX 3.3 and the truck itself, like the Slash, is styled after short course racing trucks. The thing looks amazing and true to scale. Too bad its $480! I would love to get one since my buggy technically needs a new engine anyway.
Speaking of my buggy, I need to get some other stuff for it too. I need a new body, and I can really use new tires. I want to get a JP3 exhaust so I can get a little more power from the Force 26 engine. The engine I will get is the same as the stock one, because its only $110. Plus there was nothing wrong with the engine, so why not get a second?
The tires I will be getting come premounted and include rims. They are $30 a pair though but its worth it if I need to get rims too. The ones I am looking at are Proline Badlands. These look a lot like a dirt bike style tire. I will save my old tires for using on the road though.
Supper today was 2 beef pot pies and my parents had chicken ones. They were great for a change but I am in the mood for the one from Sams Club with the mashed potatoes inside. The weather was nice and we even got a very little bit of rain. Tomorrow is 80 and isolated thunder storms
