Do it yourself

Have netbooks changed anything in the last couple of years? They have for me. I bought a little, at the time recently released, Asus eee 900. After installing a Linux distribution and some messaging, podcasting and screencasting programs it was ready for prime time! Ever since, my 3 year old Compaq laptop has been seating on the desk, being used as a desktop computer.

Don´t get me wrong. It´s a fine machine, but I rather have a nice silent desktop with a big screen in there instead of a laptop. So I set myself on a quest to find the holy grail of machines. Not expensive yet silent and nice. Did not care that much about processor speed or graphics as I hardly ever use what I have in my 3 year laptop either. It turns out it is not that easy to find something that is already built up for you (at least in the Basque country).

Behobia-Donostia 2009

Autobusak 9:40 inguruan utzi gaitu Behobia herrian. Milaka korrikalari, hotza galanta eta giro bustia. "Prestaketa kaxkarra ein dot aurten be ba", nire buruari eta halan da guzti be, erlojua aurrera. Tik-tak, tik-tak, 10ak eta nire lagun Mikelentzat, motxila kamioira sartzeko ordua. Eguraldia aldakor dabil, baina euririk ez momentu honetan.

Prestaketak amaituta, berotuteko ordue da. Momentuz, biok batera gabiz eta horrek, aurretik dekoguzen 20 kilometroetan ez pentsetan laguntzen deust.

Halako batean, goizeko 10:45 ailegatu dire eta Mikelentzat bere lekura joateko ordua. Bostekoa emon, animoak elkar trukatu eta bakarrik geratu naz berotzen. Nire irteera 11:17.

Goizeko 11ak eta Lehenengo irteera ofiziala. "Hor joango zan Mikel" neure burueri. Berotzen nabil nire irteera gunearen ondoan eta halango batean zaparrada ikeragarrie! Danok busti bustita…
