Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

Weekend & Week

Had a wonderful weekend and start of the week!

Saturdayeve Renate came over to my place. We had a nice, relaxed evening watching Dit Was Het Nieuws and the entire 1st season of Fawlty Towers on DVD. I believe I went to bed at around 04:00 :).

Sunday, my grandma celebrated her 83rd birthday. Was nice to see the family again.

Monday wasn't all that exciting. Today, however, was :). I again met up with Renate, this time in big city Alkmaar. Renate went shopping for clothes, and I went along for company, but ended up buying a few things too. I bought a new shirt and two new posters (one of Marylin Monroe, and another one that I cannot describe). Renaat bought two new jeans, a pair of shoes and two new bellybutton piercings (freaky stuff). Oh yeah I also bought the new Top Gear.

And when I came home (had to drop off Renate first at Alkmaar Central Station), another surprise was waiting: my Palm Tungsten E2! Damn, that thing rocks! The gadget factor is so over the top, not funny anymore! I'll probably review this thing for Exp Zone, not sure yet.

How much did the Palm cost and what's the use of it *for you*? I'm a gadget fan myself as well and people like us don't need any explanation apart from the geek factor, but I'm curious.

I use my PDAs just for the geek factor, and some light web browsing, and some video viewing some times when away.

I never use them for the reason they were created for: calendaring, contacts etc.

I actually do use it for what it's intended for; just this morning someone from Uni rang and told me she had an unexpected meeting this afternoon, and if we could reschedule our appointment. Still half asleep (she rang early), I got my Palm and deleted the appointment of this afternoon, created a new one for next week, pressed the Sync button (wireless sync via Bluetooth), and went back to sleep. When I woke up I checked my mail, I also opened iCal and all the appointments were edited. Awesome stuff :).

All my contacs from Adress Book are also synced into my Palm; very handy. And of course it's really handy that I configured my iBook as a BT acces point, so I can internet with my Palm.

And yeah, geek factor :).
