My lovely wife and I where on vacation to Berlin. There, we watched the great show “Glücksbringer” starring Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen. If you get a chance to see him, go for it. It is really fun and contemplative at the same time.
I also bought a Asus eee PC 1000H, which came with Windows XP and a 160GB HardDisk. The battery life is really good. It kept up running more than 4 hours hard work. Back home, i installed Ubuntu (eee PC edition?) on that tiny little thing. Now i rellay have a toy to play with.
