I'll get another battery in a few weeks. Meanwhile, it will do, and
I didn't want to spend the extra money at the time.
as for the keyboard, its not the crampness that is of issue but the
stiffness of the keys. When we have the next installfest I'll show
you the picturebook and your imediately see that the stiffness of the
keyboard makes it feel cramped.

Is it such an energy hog? This processor is plenty fast enough, but it
gets warm and uses too much power. They need a lighter chip, The speed
of the chip is not an issue. Hell, this thing would run fine with even
a slower chip. Its the heat generated that is wasting power.
All this should be understood in context. This is an asoe box and I'm
posting from it right now from my pillow.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt. I guess you missed that one."
