This is probably not as exciting as it might seem, but I am currently typing this message from my bed – not because I have some new-fangled wireless laptop (I don’t) but because I have a 14” and a BSD box right by my bed. Connected to the net, of course, so I can work, play, read email, control the music emanating from the speakers across the room… as soon as I get the Japanese keyboard working that Kevin gave me, I will be able to write letters to Eriko from here. Additionally, this will serve as my English dictionary while I am reading – I am tired of flipping through pages. Finally, I am going to write some software so that I have a smart alarm clock.. How it will be smart, I don’t know.. Only two more weeks!! I am so excited.
