I'm about to increase my shroomery dosage/addiction
    #4094546 - 04/25/05 11:11 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Cause in a few days, I'm getting:



a 12 inch powerbook with a built-in wireless card, and my apartment is close to a public park that is wired for really fast FREE wireless internet, which reaches my apartment nice and easylike. :grin:  I'm really looking forward to sitting up in bed with a laptop on my, well er, lap, smoking a :spliff: while typing on here.

how much?

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

$1602 with my college discount, with a 100 GB Hard Drive and 768 MB of RAM. 'tis going to be fucking sweet.

dan, my old computer is going to become a full-on video editing station...I have very limited hard drive space on it but definitely enough for one last project which I'm writing right now. Other than that, since my stereo died, my iMac has taken over the responsibility of being my stereo. It has all 50 GB of my music on it anyway. It'll also be for storage whereas the laptop will be my primary computer, for writing mainly.

:tongue2:  Thanks man, I hope I get to show those to a bunch of shroomerites one day but you were the grand experiment of "will anyone but my friends think these are funny?"

Project is just for fun..I'm done with school and decided not to switch to the film program halfway, I've just been making all those movies for one class I took and for fun.  I'm trying to write a bit of a serious one now.

YEah most of the NYC public parks are wired for it...I live right near Tompkins Square Park downtown which has a really fast network set up.

Also, there are certain phone booths around New York City that have these black boxes mounted on top of them and signs saying that they're wireless Hot Spots, and the intersection where they are is totally rigged for wireless, so people with laptops can just stand by the side of the sidewalk and like go online and get directions/showtimes, whatever.

Yeah, last night I actually deleted about 30 GB of clips that were imported for movie-making but left on the cutting room floor, freed an assload of space up. Tomorrow I'm going to be backing everything up on DVD-R's to free up more space to it'll process stuff quicker.

It's always fun looking through old footage.

Ever since I switched back to macs after my one hellish PC experience, I've had smooth sailing all the way. I suggest the same for you! They just work best for me too because I do video editing, which I don't like doing on PC's with programs like Premiere.

Check out the MacMini - it's a top notch computer by mac standards, and all you get is one tiny box.  You can throw away your PC hard drive, but keep your keyboard, mouse, and monitor and hook them up to this hi-power 500 dollar box. :grin:

Depends on what you mean by software. If you mean games, well yeah, it's not a gamer's platform..but I only want my computer to be for the internet and creative outlets, and it lets me write screenplays, edit video, and record music.

It's spreading fast. Philadelphia recently announced a plan to put the ENTIRE CITY on a wireless network, which is pretty fucking wild. I can't wait till a summer sunday when I can smoke a joint on my roof, then take my laptop to the park a block away and lay in the grass while talking to all you silly bastards.
