Here are the key points:
1) Asus EEPC 1201N
1) Ubuntu (Linux) (originally dual boot, but now alone after windows became unnecessary)
2) Elegant Gnome
3) Croyde Bay from Baggy Point (my photo)
4) Project Hamster (provides a little box in the bottom right tracking and reminding me of what I'm doing)
5) Tomboy Notes (always on top - on the right - where I put the detailed schedule of what I'm doing)
I wish everyone else as much computer happiness as possible in the new year!!
