Toys and backs

My Asus EEE PC 900 turned up, and after a brief dalliance with Ubuntu 8.04, it’s now running a streamlined copy of Windows XP. Even with essential applications like Firefox and Open Office installed it only uses half of the 4GB flash drive leaving the additional 16GB drive free for porndata. It talks to my phone for mobile data via a USB cable at the moment, a Bluetooth doohickey is on it’s way to replace the old one I appear to have misplaced.

I also appear to have jinxed my back. After saying the other day that it’d been fine lately, I’ve been off work for two days with chronic back ache, I didn’t even make it out of bed until 5pm today. However this evening it’s been sufficiently better to hopefully go back to work tomorrow, there’s only so much daytime television a man can take.
