week 9 – getting distracted
Image by mjtmail (tiggy)
where to start with this week? its been one distraction after another. it seems like everything i’ve had to get done, didn’t.
the work golf day is coming round in the next month or so, so the rev and i will need to start our practice plan to avoid me making a fool of myself on the first tee.
one of my dealextreme orders came, amongst other things a laser pointer that can pop balloons & one of those fire starting sparky firing things we all had as kids in scouts. campfire here we come.
still waiting for replacement cells for nicky’s laptop battery. i’m hoping for the early part of next week.

A huge portion of my next three days will be spent within aluminum tubes slicing through the air at hundreds of miles per hour. It will seem to me as if I am sitting still in extremely cramped quarters with a dozen channels of crappy satellite television to keep me occupied once my laptop battery craps out.
Maybe I’ll read.

I’ve never liked my Vaio. It’s slow, has little space, is crazy heavy, and has pathetic battery life. The only thing I like about it is the size of the screen for playing games/photo editing, but not for movies[it can't handle black worth shit]
The thinkpad was a gift from my advisor. I love it. It’s fast, light, has more space than my Vaio, and has a 3.5 hour battery life. My only gripe is the crappy sound from speakers put on the bottom of the laptop.
It’s me-sized! =]
I’m busy being an engineer so photos have sort of taken a backseat. Sorry. I’m sick of sluts anyways. They’re boring. My current classes keep me from that side of campus so I’m pretty happy.

Here is everything I packed for my one-week trip to Italy. The Jansport backpack is one of the most useful things I own – there is a day-pack that unzips from the main unit. Everything I need.
What’s In My Bag?

These are the usual contents of my crappy Eddie Bauer messenger/backpack bag. It can be either, but I wear it was a messenger. It’s not big enough and I’m looking into getting a new one. Okay. So it isn’t *that* crappy, but it really isn’t big enough for me.
Anatomy of a bag

Question of the Week: How long does your CCI laptop battery last?
For some UNC students, their college careers will last longer than the lifespan of the batteries in their CCI computers.
Freshmen said their computers’ battery lives last between four and five hours.
“I’m pretty good at making my battery last throughout the day,” said freshman Allison Farmer. “I try to let the battery get pretty low before I charge it, and I don’t leave it plugged in once it reaches 100%.”
UNC’s IT Help and Support website links to the site of CCI manufacturer Lenovo. That page inlcudes tips for extending battery life by utilizing power-saving modes such as hibernation and standby or decreasing LCD brightness. By the time students reach their junior year, CCI laptop battery life seems to decrease.
“My laptop only takes two hours to die,” said junior Tiffany Williamson. “It always seems to die at the most inconvenient times – usually when I’m about to use it for class or homework.”
Another junior had an optimistic view of his computer’s untimely death.
“I think it’s kind of a good thing that I don’t take my laptop to class anymore,” said junior Zach Alexander. “I feel like I pay more attention when I write my notes. The internet is just too intoxicating.”
One senior seemed to suffer worst of all.
“I almost had to buy an expensive replacement battery, but then my laptop was stolen,” said senior Kevin Barnett. “Instead, I got a whole new one.”
