I don't want a pad

The I-Pad. Neat device. Not for me. If it could run more than one application at a time (like my G1 does) I would consider it. It would be nice to listen to music while browsing the web or watch a movie while browsing the web...I do both on my laptop. The CPU in the I-Pad is very powerful....but Apple crippled the operating system.

I built a cheap ($60!) computer yesterday. I bought my first motherboard and CPU in at least a year...I think. The CPU is an AMD II X4 620. Basically a quad core AMD CPU running at 2.0 GHz. The computer will power the media in the house. Right now I pump our video and audio for various devices from two different computers. Once I am done it will all be handled by one. Simplification. I wanted a smaller case....that will have to wait till next month. I couldn't justify the extra money this month.

Right now I am sitting in the bowels of DFW airport...morning airport standby. Boo.

Most of my days are spent listening/watching podcast. Podcast are like TV shows/radio shows concentrating on a certain topic. Most of mine are computer related although a handful are travel related. One of the travel podcast is called The Crew Lounge. I passed a question their way a few weeks ago, they recently answered it on episode 5. I'm famous!

Hmmm I need to find a way to fill up another 5 1/2 hours.......I really should learn a new language.
