Got a new Computer

Got an EeePC. It's cute, it's small, and I like the heck out of it. The keyboard is big enough to type on (for my little fingers, at least), though I wouldn't want to actually work on it. It is super-light, and I really like that: I think having an ultraportable around is probably something I'm not going to be able to give up, following this.

I'm planning to stick to the default Xandros Linux install, and probably going to stick to 'easy mode' for the most part. Since I seldom actually use the desktop, it doesn't matter much to me, and the big button-style selection is cute and useful.

I'm sleepy, but don't really want to go to sleep. I feel like I should be doing cool things with my shiny new toy, but it's hard to remember that there's not that much 'new' about it: it's just a Debian-ish Linux machine, so there's nothing I can do now that I couldn't do before.

I did configure the desktop to have a Logjam icon for posting to LiveJournal; don't know if that will affect how often I use it, but it can't hurt.
