AKA the "Executive 64"; the C64 reengineered into a portable. No battery, a small CRT screen, and it weighs quite a bit, but for the early 80s, it was pretty impressive.

This is basically what my desk looks like on any given day at work. Generally the Mac isn’t there, but it’s a Saturday so I am watching some Family Guy while I work.

I had planned to go out today and see if a project I was interested in would work out. Instead I spent two and a half hours, and too much money, on busses. So, when I came home I decided to document what I had futilely carried around.
So, that’s the kind of gear I carry when I want to cover "all" and I’m not sure what I’ll be doing. It also shows the Lowepro Versapack off rather nicely.
Missing from the photo is the spare 2GB SD card. It’s in the dedicated pocket in the bag and I keep forgetting it there if I don’t need it.
A life less ordinary.

You don’t realise how many recharable batteries and USB leads I took for stealing battery off the notebook. And still my camera ran out. All because I didn’t bring it’s specific USB lead. In the future, when I’m…(clearly needing to improve my carbon footprint)
Lap Desk ? Ergonomic Pillow for your Laptop
Lap Desk – Ergonomic Pillow for your Laptop
What is a Lap Desk? Why do I need one? I will try to answer these questions in this article.
A Lap Desk is indeed as it sounds, a desk for your lap. The Lap Desk is mainly used for working with your laptop on your lap but can also be used for writing, reading, drawing and many other activities that require a flat surface to work on.
The concept exists for years way before the age of the laptop computer, in the past , it was mainly used for disabled individuals to be able to read , write and eat using a table on their lap.
In today’s age where mobility is the key, laptops exists in almost every home, since notebook prices are decreasing every day, it is almost cheaper to buy a laptop computer rather than the old fashioned desktop.
Laptops were given their names because they were originally designed to work with on ones lap. The fact is most of today’s laptop are rather heavy, tend to overheat and might be spreading radiation to some extent.
This is where the Lapdesk comes in.
The Lapdesk has numerous advantages:
Raising the Laptop computer and therefore releasing strain from the neck and back. Isolating the Lap from the heat generated from the Laptop. Leaning the laptop at an angle easier for viewing and typing. Cushioning the bottom surface to make using your laptop more comfortable. Allowing the use of an external mouse while using your computer on your lap.
There are quite a bit of Lap Desk types, some are firm and some soft, some wider than others and some compact enough that they can fit right into your laptop back.
So how would one choose?
The answer is very simple, it can be said that the bigger the Lapdesk will be , the more comfortable it will be to work on. But you must remember that when buying a large Lap Desk you will lose the mobile advantage of carrying it around with you.
If you intend to use your laptop mostly on the road, you might be better off choosing a more compact Lap Desk.
Most Lapdesks range from 30$ to 120$ , they can easily be bought online and shipped all over the world.
Enjoy your Laptop and beware, the Lap Desk can make you addicted to working at home.
