The portable writing surface

Remember I mentioned my new mobile writing device? Well here she is.

wakanda

Pretty isn’t she? Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce Wakanda, A HP Pavillion dv2000z carrying

A 1.6 Ghz AMD Turion x2
1 Gig of Ram
80 GB hard drive
intergrated Geforce 6150 graphics
Integrated webcam and mic
14.1 inch widescreen monitor @ 1280×800

Not the most powerful system on the planet, but definitely loaded with enough power for my writing, coding and game playing needs. Right now she’s running Windows XP Home(very occasionally) and Kubuntu Edgy(where this post is being typed)

I’ll talk more about issues I have with linux, especially in Ghana, later.

She’s still being configured though. I don’t yet have all the software I want installed on either platform, though the linux box is much further along.

Speaking of configuration, if anyone has wallpapers of the following, I’d love to get my hands on a copy

1. Anything Milestone Comics related, but especilly Static and Hardware
2. Black Panther. She is called Wakanda after all
3. Anything Martial Arts related

Otherwise, this is how I’ll be typing most of my posts to you now. Lets hope she holds up as well as she looks

    I tend to refer to my computers and cars as women. Its just something I do. Maybe because I see them as pretty.
