Well it’s a car trip day and unlike the last 2 weeks when I went to the Golden Corral in Lebanon, PA I will be making a nice long blog entry today. I am going to the New York State Fair today and planning on having a good day. Unlike the past few times I went, I have decided to bring a camera today and take some pictures of the different things there.
It’s pretty funny when you have to go out of state for a good fair, but the New York State Fair is MUCH better than the Bloomsburg Fair here. They have a lot better food and it usually is cheaper. It all depends on what you get though. You can get dollar hot dogs or shark on a stick for like 6 bucks. I personally like the chicken fingers and French fries. As far as cheap food though nothing can beat my breakfast today, 2 lunchables for 1.25 each! I get turkey and American cheese without the drink.
I guess the most logical place to start, like I always do, is to list what I have. I have the netbook of course, which is my only laptop I use since my Toshiba has that weird stained LCD. It is annoying to even look at that screen so I just use my desktop and my netbook. I have my Sony headphones that I have been using for almost a year now, which for me says a lot. I guess that buying cheap 10 dollar headphones really isn’t the best idea. The ones I have now were supposed to be 60 but I got them on clearance for 30. These are those “extra bass” in ear ones, I think XB40, with the flat cord.
I have the iPod for music, but I am using the netbook as well. I only have unrated music on the iPod after all. I like being able to store all my music on the netbook, which makes it much better than the iPod in this case. I recently changed the “Top 25 most played” in iTunes to be 50 songs instead, so now I have my top 50 most played. This is pretty nice, and I may even make a top 100 soon.
I had to bring at least 1 PDA, so I chose the M500 and folding keyboard. This is in case I decide that I want to do some work, but I am not so sure that I will bring that into the fair with me. To bring in, I have that BlackBerry, which is a bit better to use since it has a keyboard on it. Not many Palm PDAs had keyboards, which upsets me. The few that did were the Treo phones (except the Treo 90 which was just a PDA), and some of the Clies. The Clies have somewhat okay keyboards on them, but the Treo 650 I traded away had a great keyboard.
Speaking of Treos, I will be getting one again in about 2 weeks. A person on the one forum I am on is giving me his old Treo 680, and a BlueTooth keyboard. The keyboard is Palm branded, but I am going to assume that it is really a Think Outside keyboard like they used to use. Think Outside made a lot of PDA keyboards for companies actually. The 3 that I have for the M500, Visor, and some Clies are all rebranded Think Outside keyboards. They are the same keyboard pretty much, with some subtle differences, and a different connector.
I also have my Nintendo DSi which I plan on taking in with me. I tried the NetHack port for the DS and I didn’t like the way it looked on the screen. I used to play a lot of NetHack on my NEC MobilePro 780, and I think that is the best thing I have used for it. I was trying to find an Rogue like game for BlackBerry, forget that. I can’t even find one, which brings me to this point. Why do people like the BlackBerry so much? Palm OS was MUCH better! At least the keyboard isn’t too bad, but the browser is the worst thing I have ever used! And I have used Blazer on Palm OS!
So the next thing on the Road Trip Blog Entry Check List would normally be the RC update. Well, I haven’t really been into RC much, so there is no RC related stuff for me really. There is quite a bit of new stuff I want though. One of the things I want is the Losi Micro SCT which is a 1/24 scale 4WD Short Course Truck. There is also a good deal of other stuff but that is all that really stands out to me right now. I try not to pay too much attention before I end up buying a bunch of stuff I don’t really need.
So what has replaced RC for me? Firearms and firearm accessories! So now, unless I get back into RC like I used to be, you will get the Firearms update. Guns tend to be more fun to me anymore, but they tend to cost me much more in the long run I guess.
I mostly shoot my 22 pistol and 22 rifle, since it’s the cheapest to shoot. I shot the 30-06 a few times as well, and I haven’t been shooting the 9mm pistols much. I am a rifle guy personally, and I can have more fun with a rifle. I plan on shooting the AK more as well.
