I love/loved my ASUS-Tek EeePC 1000, it is was (nearly) indestructible. It went to Mexico with me and returned several times, surviving airport security,… it went on many a dive boat in both fresh and salt water,… I lugged it all across Ontario,… it went hundreds of kilometres with me on my bike,… it has been dropped,… it has even accidentally flown across the room. The one thing thing that finally did it in was the May two-four weekend rain storm. It got soaked while it was powered on in sleep mode, the battery in,… This it could not take.
So I operated,… The patient could not be revived,…
These are the hard drives, the smaller of the two is a fast 8 Gig SSD (actually very slow compared to today’s SSDs), the other is a slower 32 Gig SSD. These were the only two things I needed to work,… but it became obvious to me after several different Mini PCIe interface devices that the water that caused the motherboard of my EeePC to short out also killed my two SSDs.
Luckily, and not through any purposeful planning on my own, I had backups of my files else where. It took a few weeks to piece it altogether again. Accounting files, most of my music (lost some), The Wingnuterer files and all my software installs (a considerable amount of financial investment there).
Anyways, I have since replaced my ASUS-Tek EeePC 1000 with a ASUS-Tek EeePC 1015PN (with tint control). The new EeePC isn’t as robust as the old, it has a mechanical HD, but I will replace that shortly,… until then,… and forever after,… backups!!!
That loud popping sound you are currently hearing is the sound of thousands of Canadian Islamo-Fascist, Rightwing Fear Mongers Heads Exploding,…. why?
Deepak Obhrai, Canadian parliamentary secretary for foreign affairs, said Canada will stand ready to offer assistance, with the ultimate goal being the creation of stability in Egypt.
Anyways, what happened to Mr. Harper supporting Mubarak and all that good stuff? Is he taking lessons on flip-flopping or what? Does this mean we are now funding the Muslim Brotherhood?
I can’t wait to hear what Glenn Beck has to say tonight “It’s a military, Islamo-Marxist Coo-Dah-Tah and those Socialist-Commie Canadians are funding them, it’s the end of the world,….“ I don’t think there will be enough chalkboards to hold Beckerheads loonie raving tonight. I just loves these people, they so crazy.
Seriously though, why are rightwing nuttersall so pro democracy when it came to bring democracy to Iraq and Afganistan, but now in Egypt it is bad. Oh, I get it,… Democrazy required millions of bombs to be dropped and then the country invaded before “Real” democrazy can break out and flourish and spread,… The tree of Lieberty must be water first,…
damn, my bad, so silly of me
Hat Tip to PZ for this one
This is also a test of The Wingnuterer RSS feeds to the Progressive Bloggers
Some truth here for a change: we’re running out of gags. We’re at the end of the news cycle. Friday is the day when many news pieces carried all week end, no not be picked up later. Seriously. For the first few days, sure the humour flows. But sometime on Thursday, the humour gets harder, and cynicism takes its toll.
So, not so many tweets of value.
Personally, I blame Tiger Woods. Just too much about him.
At least I stayed away from the obvious ball jokes.
Zorpheous survived latest gall stone attack! Should he have surgery, or be left to suffer for 40 more years?
Wingnuterer wants U to decide!
Assuming this makes it to the PB aggregator. We’re having problems!
